Tech fans have been eagerly looking ahead for the iPad Pro line as they anticipate the release of the iPad Pro 2. However, the upcoming Apple flagship tablet isn't likely to launch any time soon, as Apple is rumored to place premium on its iPhone 8 in 2017, instead.

It's definitely sad news for those who have been waiting for the successor, the iPad Pro 2. Despite that, what can Apple lovers expect from it? Here's a roundup of everything you need to know about the Apple device: its specs and features, upgrades, price details, release dates and more.

Specs and features

First, it's possible that the new iPad Pro 2 might adapt the same changes that the latest Apple devices have been enjoying. While fans do not necessarily expect big cosmetic changes to the device, it's likely to get slimmer and thinner, as its predecessor, the iPad Pro, currently weighs around 713 grams.

Upgrades

The new iPad Pro 2 is also expected to share most of its specs with the iPad Pro, but will likely sport a noticeable absence of the earphone jacks, like the iPhone 7s. It is also rumored to be water- and dust-resistant like the Apple flagship mobile devices, and is powered by the yet-released A10X chipset and the iOS 11.

Among the upgrades expected for the iPad Pro 2 is the added True Tone display, which would automatically adjust the white balance, 4k video recording via a 12 MP and 5 MP front and rear camera, respectively. Moreover, it is said to have Apple Pencil support across several software, according to PC Advisor.

Release dates

According to MacWorld, the new iPad Pro 2 is expected to launch sometime in March 2017, although new reports suggest that it might launch in 2018 at the latest. It's also expected to cost $799 for the lowest-end configuration, and around $1,200 for the highest iPad Pro 2 variant.
