The iPhone 16 family is said to have thinner bezels, and now the iPad Pro is also said to have thin bezels. It seems as if Apple is in a bezel-trimming mood this year.

Slimmer bezels on iPad Pro:

There is a strong expectation that Apple will launch a new iPad Pro generation by the end of this month or the beginning of April. The 11″ model is expected to have a 7.12mm bezel and the 12.9″ model will have a 7.08mm bezel.

Compared with the previous-generation iPad Pros, their bezels would be 10% to 15% smaller. There will also be a landscape front camera on the next iPad Pro tablets and some design tweaks to the rear camera. The next iPad Pro tablets may also include wireless charging and the M3 chip.

The Magic Keyboard should also be updated with an aluminum enclosure, as well as a new Apple Pencil. In addition to the smaller bezels, people will notice the thinness of these iPads – they are expected to be the thinnest iPads ever, thanks to their rumored OLED screens.

iPad Pro & Air might come in glossy or matte screen:

According to a Weibo tipster with questionable accuracy, Apple suppliers have already sent iPad Air samples to the US, and the device may come with a glossy or matte screen. It’s the same with the iPad Pro.

The tipster didn’t specify whether he meant a matte finish or an anti-reflective coating like the one on the Pro Display XDR from 2019. An anti-reflective pattern is formed using nano-texture glass, reducing the illusion of mirroring. The Galaxy S24 Ultra has a similar design, which makes the report plausible.

In the same report, the source claims the iPhone 17 series will feature the same anti-reflective technology as the Galaxy S24 Ultra.

The iPads are likely to introduce an improved anti-reflective technology, which will trickle down to the iPhones next year.
