The 10.5-inch variant is the replacement for the original 10.9-inch variant, however, with slimmer bezels, the footprint of the device has gradually reduced, and is sized similar to the current generation 9.7-inch iPad Pro. The device is also expected to eliminate the fingerprint scanner from the chin of the device.

The 12.9-inch iPad Pro is also expected to sport a 12-megapixel rear camera along with the True Tone display, seen on the 9.7-inch model. The True Tone display uses advanced quad-channel light sensors to change the colour contrasts of the display to match the surroundings.

The 7.9-inch iPad Pro will get a Smart Connector, for connecting a keyboard, similar to the iPad Pro 9.7-inch and a 12-megapixel camera at the back, with True Tone flash module.
