I was scratching my head reading the 2017 iPad Pro 2 rumors. #1. Thinner design really ? My 9.7 Pro is ok #2. Water and dust resistance my iPad Pro 9.7 never leaves my desk, Starbucks or my bed or Recliner. So no thanks #3. No 3.5mm jack in order to go thinner it has to go. But I won't trade a High definition audio Port to save a few millimeters #4. A10X no thanks it's not like the jump from A8X to A9X in significance All I can say is 9.7 owners cherish your device. Apple seems hell bent on removing the 3.5mm port. On an iPhone I understand but not on an iPad size device because there's no Taptic Engine that's needs the space. Lastly, in all honesty a 2017 iPad Pro of any size without a 3.5mm Port is literally a Downgrade.
