Apple fans are excited about reports of the anticipated iPad Pro 2 release in 2017. The excitement increases over the latest news that said Apple is about to release the world's first foldable iPads.

The release of Apples iPad Pro 2 is an exciting prospect but fans may have to wait a little longer. Apple usually holds its first annual event in March where announcements are made for upcoming models of various product lines. However, the announcement of the highly anticipated iPad Pro 2 could be deferred until September, according to Mac World.

Despite the uncertainty of its arrival, the latest iPad could be worth the wait since recent sources claim that Apple is planning on releasing a foldable iPad Pro 2. The reports coincided with the conclusion of "Westworld," the top rating HBO series, which featured foldable tablets. According to Mac Rumors, Apple has recently filed a patent for foldable phone technology and it is very likely that the same will be used for its iPad line.

The new iPad model is expected to be bezel-free. Reports also claim that Apple's iPad Pro 2 will get rid of its home button. The iPad Pro 2 is expected to come with a Touch ID that is directly embedded on its screen.

Sources also claim that the upcoming iPad Pro 2 will come in three, sizes which includes a 10.5-inch variant that is directed towards the use of the education sector. The new iPad model is also expected to feature a 9.7 inch and 12.9 inch variant.

Apples iPad Pro 2 is expected to run on the latest iOS 10 after photo leaks of the new iPad's Settings tab that showed Siri with its own top-level tab instead of the usual sub-category within the General tab. The iPad Pro 2 is also anticipated to feature an AMOLED pad in its foldable screen.
