The next-generation iPad Pro models will have thinner bezels around the screen compared to previous models, according to rumors shared today by a previously reliable leaker known as “Instant Digital” on the Chinese social network Weibo.

An insider said that the next 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models will have frames of 7.12 mm and 7.08 mm, respectively, excluding the metal edges of the devices. If these measurements are accurate, the bezels will be approximately 10-15% thinner than previous iPad Pro models released between 2018 and 2022.

Other key new features rumored to be coming to Next iPad Pro models include the latest Apple technology. M3 chip, thinner body, horizontal front camera, rear camera design changes and possibly MagSafe wireless charging. New accessories are also expected, including an updated Magic Keyboard with a partial aluminum body and an updated Apple Pencil.

“Instant Digital” is largely in line with Apple rumors over the past year. The report was correct about the matte back glass on the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus, the yellow color for the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus, and more, but it incorrectly stated that the iPad Air would receive a hardware update last year.

The new iPad Pro models should be announced in late March or early April, according to Ross Young, CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants. Tuesday, March 26 is rumored to be a potential announcement date for the iPad Pro.

Apple is also expected to refresh the 10.9-inch iPad Air and release an all-new 12.9-inch iPad Air.
