Rumors have also suggested that the 6.1-inch iPhone will have an aluminum band and LCD screen to keep costs down.

As September comes closer, new reports about Apple's iPhone and iPad devices are surfacing. Macotakarabrought this latest rumour that the new iPad Pro series will not be having the 3.5mm jack for headphones.

Japanese site Macotakara, which has a reasonable record in predicting Apple's moves ahead of time, says that the 12.9-inch and 10.5-inch iPad Pros are set to get smaller overall, even while the screen size stays the same. "According to Mac Otakara, the 10.5" model will shrink from 250.6 x 174.1 x 6.1mm as of now to a 247.5 x 178.7 x 6mm dimensions. Meanwhile, the 12.9in model is slated to go from 305.7 x 220.6mm to 280 x 215mm, while getting 0.5mm slimmer at a thickness of 6.4mm.

Leaker of phone-related things, Ben Geskin, has shared dummy model photos of the 6.1-inch and 6.5-inch iPhones, which Apple is rumored to launch in the fall.

Yes, you heard it right.

Migrants have since been accused of illegally entering the state and taking land and jobs, causing tensions with locals. Hundreds of thousands fled to India from Bangladesh during its 1971 war of independence from Pakistan.


A necessary tweak including Face ID brings is the need to relocate the Smart Connector from the side to the bottom of the iPad Pro so it sits next to the Lightning Port. And the problem with Face ID is that it doesn't work when the cameras are turned to the side. The report citing anonymous sources said that the upcoming iPad Pro will ditch home button and sport Face ID technology.

This would mean that the tablets will feature a beveled design similar to the iPhone SE - however, this is unlikely. That has come and gone this year with no announcement, but nevertheless, we might not have a long wait for the new iPad Pro. What's more, the iPad Pros will reportedly debut Face ID, a feature hitherto reserved for the super-premium iPhone X.

As the iPad is most often used in landscape when paired with keyboards, this is poised to create another problem.

The iPads already support AirPods and wireless headphones, hence the reason for losing the headphone jack is obviously not the promotion of wireless features.

The phones are expected to launch later in Q3 or Q4 this year, most probably in September.
