Different wording on the title. We still have room for an IPad Pro @ WWDC Speculations thread. Perhaps these threads will improve our chances of apple releasing a new Ipad Pro @ WWDC. Now that's a good idea for an other new thread! 12 days to steer this ship!! Get to work peopleMan I could have sworn that I have seen a similar thread on this topic...I must have imagined it..
Yeah I find the popularity of the desire for bezeless design and Face ID on iPads on the forum alarming. I most certainly can understand the desire to slim bezels down a bit but holding a 12.9 with one hand with virtually no bezels doesn’t sound appealing to me.I really don't think so. IMO it doesn't need a redesign, the bezels are fine - any smaller and it will actually make it harder to hold/use without covering part of the screen. TouchID is fine and in many cases still better than FaceID (like being able to have multiple people/finger prints which is more common on iPads). There is nothing keeping them from adding gestures to even the current iPads.
I'm fine with bezel-less notebooks and desktops (something you don't have to support a lot with your hands), but smaller bezels on a tablet device is a complete turn-off for me as well. Just because it works well for one product doesn't mean it'll work well on another.Yeah I find the popularity of the desire for bezeless design and Face ID on iPads on the forum alarming.

The only thing Im banking on is that last year there was also a lot of silence about the iPad Pro 10.5..then BAM, on May 29th, we found out that a patent had been issued..so who knows, it could still happenI don't think so. Radio silence on the rumors, and no obvious way to orient FaceID in an iPad.
As a 1st gen iPad Pro 12.9" user, I'm not sure what to do. I want an upgraded iPad mainly for the camera and pro motion. I also need to replace my smart keyboard. However, my current iPad Pro basically works fine and has shown 0 performance issues since the day I bought it. It feels like spending $1,000+ on a new iPad Pro would be a waste of money unless I was convinced I was going to own it for 3 or 4 more years.
