    I can’t contain my excitement, we are one day away from the new iPad Pro being released and I am so excited, could we expect some new colours or will it be the same old space grey, silver and gold?

    You can expect whatever you want. Tomorrow we’ll find out if there are to be new iPads and what Apple will do. If we are playing the odds and using history as a guide it will likely be the same old ‘black’, silver etc. but who knows. Apple could pull a fast one and skittle the whole line up

    I guess its safe to say there won't be a white face iPad Pro with this new design. I imagine though, like you said the body will be available in silver, gold and space grey? Silver with black front will be reminiscent of the original iPad with squared edges which would be pretty cool.

    I expect all colors will come with a black front to match the iPhones (and better blend in the rounded corners of the screen). On the back, likely the same Space Gray, Silver, and Gold.

    I’d love to see a matte black one, just imagine how good that’d look. One can dream.

    I guess kind of like the slate colour of the iPhone 5 and iPad mini from 2012?

    More like the iPhone 7 “Black.” Only problem was sometimes the black coating would wear off

    It would be nice to have all chassis colors with the option of black bezels rather than just the space gray. Black bezels are important to me so that takes priority, but since I only use smartcovers (and clear thin skin on the back) it would be nice for a color option.

    I have a "champagne" Yoga Book with black bezels and it looks quite good.

    It’s a lacquer finish so that’s unavoidable with time.

    On the other hand I could care less about the colour of the back of the device. It either lives in a case or I simply look into the front 99% of the time.

    Yeah I agree. I always get the space grey because I like the black bezel. I’m expecting there won’t be any options for a white bezel on this new iPad Pro, though.

    What is it about these new iPad Pros that cause you to think a white bezel won't be an option?

    Well whenever Apple has done this redesign with reduced bezels and put FaceID in a device they’ve gone and made it all black bezels. Probably has something to do with the cosmetics, I can’t imagine that huge FaceID/camera housing could be made to blend in well with the white. That and the black just looks better on small-bezel devices.

    You can’t get the Xr or XS with white bezels for a reason.

    That makes sense. I didn't consider that because I'm not expecting the bezel-less, Face ID Pros to be announced tomorrow. :D (yeah, I know, all the rumors point to that, but...)

    I was skeptical too until the invitations came out. The logos and pencil-drawn text seems to be a pretty big hint.

    I'd expect the same colors as we have had in years past.

    I want that and black AirPods, I refuse to buy AirPods until they come out with black ones. Unfortunately I doubt it’ll ever happen.

    Personally I’m expecting only one gold this time around; the new, more rosey gold that’s used on the Series 4 Watches.

    I use a Smart Cover without a case and neutrals are the easiest to match.

    My current iPad Pro 9.7 is rose gold and last year it was difficult to find the original Apple pink sand Smart Cover. Finally found a used one in like new condition on eBay. Had the iPad been silver or space grey it would be much easier to find after market products in a matching color.

    You can always buy and wrap them with products from companies like debrand and the like.

    Dbrand doesn’t offer AirPods skinks that I know of, nobody offers glossy black skins either. ColorWare offers painted ones that looks awesome but you pay a high premium.
