Apple is inching to follow iPhone 7's success with another flagship iPad which is likely to invade 2017 with 3 display size options. The rumored next iterations will boast 9.7-inch display for starter iPad, 10.1-inch iPad Pro and the iPad Pro 2 which comes in 12.9-inch display.

It seems that security analyst Ming Chi-Kuo hits again with details for 2017 iPad. Although it is clear that nothing about screen size is definite for now, Kuo's leaks provided a glimpse of what to expect. However, what silted the whole prediction game is another prediction that next iPad's smallest display will be 7.9-inch. If true, this could be a twist for Apple because such width is just a little over than regular phablets.

Mac Otakara Blog reported that they have well-connected source at Apple who leaked details for iPad 2017. They zeroed in at revamped iPad Mini 4 which will then be known as iPad Pro. What settles apart these beaut is 12MP iSight camera with True Tone Flash to compliment its True Tone Display. Plus, another detail that tickles imagination is alleged 4-speaker system in contrast to traditional 2 speakers. Internal microphones will also transform to quad-mic.

Otakara also alleged that Apple decided to re-offer the 3.5mm headset system in iPad 2017. As a precedent, the current iPhone 7 omitted the audio jack in favor of wireless system. At any rate, be warned that Otakara failed to accurately predict Apple in the past. However, their sources are notable for accuracy, Mac Rumors said.

Whether it is an issue of misinterpretation or otherwise, Apple made one thing clear in 2017 array of iPad. Some claimed that iPad days are dwindling because Cupertino is focusing on iPhone instead. If spring next year witness highly improved iPad as rumored, then Apple technically slammed these predictions. So, time again to grab a popcorn, join this waiting game and hope that Apple is going to unleash a show of iPhone 7's magnitude.
