    Am I one of the only that doesn't like the "bezel less" design on the 2018 iPad Pro? Some people will say "it looks good", but I value functionality over form. On a phone, you can get away will bezel less because you can actually hold the phone in your hand, but on a tablet, you can't and it would seem that you need a bezel for grip. Anyone else feel this way?

    I feel the opposite and hope they give us at least an 11"- 11.5" iPad Pro with same 10.5 device size with smaller bezels. Do not want the bezels eliminated completely but they could use thinning up for sure. My fingers seldom migrate onto the screen surface.

    Only takes a little bit of bezel for me, am used to my X.

    Anything that you’ve seen on this and other websites have been concept images of what people think a new iPad might look like. Apple hasn’t actually released any information about a 2018 iPad Pro. It may end up looking completely different than the concept images. Personally I’m rooting for small bezels rather than no bezels.

    I know that these are just rumors. I was just saying. Smalls bezels may be nice too. Who knows? Depending on how it might be presented, I may come around.

    I hate the bezel-less renditions I've seen so far on the internet. Anyway, I've just bought the 10.5'' today so I won't be upgrading anytime soon... But I hope they keep them for many years to come.

    I’d be okay with just slim bezels vs being completely bezel-free, but I like the idea either way. I love the look of the iPhone X and love the concept art of the iPad X so far. I do grip the iPad on the front sides sometimes, when I grab it, but once I’m holding it and using it, I’m holding it from the backside, so having no bezels wouldn’t hinder the way I use the iPad.

    I’m good with bezel free. I typically have my iPad propped up in the ASK or on my lap with my fingers on the back. Only my palms rest on the sides.

    I think I might get an iPad Pro 10.5 too and if I do, update 2-3 years later. But, I will be in June and WWDC will be in that month, so I'm unsure.

    I was talking about the renders. Go look on Youtube and search "ipad pro 2018" and see what I'm talking about.

    I am all for the bezel-less design. Larger screens in the same physical size of the previous ipads? Whats not to like? Thats awesome! I don’t understand why some are worried. First of all, when i hold an ipad either in landscape or portrait mode, my fingers & palms are cupping the iPad from behind and my thumbs are pressing the edges supporting the ipad. They arent even touching the bezels. But even if they did...i am quite sure apple would add amazing palm finger rejection on the edges just like they already do with their excellent palm rejection technology in the center of the ipad. So no worries. But realistically, i think apple will keep a very thin bezel all the way around the ipad to house the face id camera. I dont think there will be a “notch”like on the iphone x. Just my feeling. Guess we’ll find out in 3 months at wwdc in june.

    Some are worried because different people do different things. No matter what, everyone ain't gonna like the same thing.

    Of course not. We are all different. Hey, l am one of those who wants to see an ipad mini pro! But Apple is gonna do what Apple is gonna do. I am neither upset or worried. It is what it is. I was just addressing the worry some people have about no bezels. Do you really think if Apple does away with the bezels, they won’t do something about acceidental finger & palm rejection along the edges of the ipad? I think not. I just think it’s silly getting all worked up about. First of all, they are just rumors at this point. Nobody knows what the new ipad pros will look like. And second of all, Apple will certainly address any issues regarding accidental finger touches along the edge just like they did with their excellent palm rejection in the center of the screen. No worries.

    I get it. But anyone can draw a picture of an iPad, so it's hardly worth speculating about.

    I also want a mini pro. I might come around to like bezeless. It depends.

    Bezels per se don’t bother me— but more screen with same size/weight— what’s not to love? ;) So, I would be happy with bezel-less or reduced bezels.

    - more difficult to hold without touching the screen
    - more difficult to hold without covering some of the screen


    I believe you’re talking about holding with two hands? If so, holding that way works but it’s easier for me to put my thumb on the bezels to give it extra grip. Otherwise all the effort goes toward pushing against the edges of the iPad. It’s slight but it’s more effort because it’s only one direction of force as opposed to two (the second being pinching with thumb), and less surface contact for friction.
    But a lot of the time I hold the iPad with one hand, usually tilting it up with the bottom resting on a surface, and the other hand touches the screen. In this scenario it’s even more natural and comfortable to put my thumb on the bezel.

    And are you talking about a particular size iPad? I’m mainly speaking in reference to using my 12.9. I don’t have a 9.7 or 10.5.

    Palm rejection is different than accidental touch rejection. Palm rejection senses a large surface area of contact, larger than a finger, especially when the pencil is making contact with the screen, and rejects it. Even then it’s not perfect. But how can software know whether your thumb is long pressing on a button on the edge of the screen or merely holding the iPad? Keep in mind, it’s not just the home screen where icons are spaced away from the edge. In apps, buttons are along the edge where your thumb needs to go.
    And even if it’s rejected, in some scenarios your thumb will still be covering up content.
