After more than half a year of rumors and speculation, people thought they could see the new iPad Pro, Mac and other products at the September conference, but it turned out that the protagonist of the conference was the 2018 iPhone lineup and the Apple Watch Series 4. As a result, it is widely expected that Apple may also plan to hold another press conference in October to introduce new products.
Foreign media 9to5Mac released a report on Thursday that the 2018 iPad Pro will be equipped with the new Apple A12X processor. It has been previously reported that the part number of the A12X processor is T8027, and its code name is Vortex. The new report also reiterates this.
According to sources, the new iPad Pro will be powered by a new A12X processor that is faster than the A12 Bionic processor of the new iPhone this year. The new processor will also include a more powerful A12X GPU. However, this report does not mention how much performance improvement the A12X has.
Earlier this week, 9to5Mac quoted sources as saying that the code for the iPad Pro Wi-Fi version in 2018 was iPad 8, 1, iPad 8, 2, iPad 8, 5, iPad 8, 6. At the same time, the models that support cellular functions are iPad 8, 3, iPad 8, 4, iPad 8, 7 and iPad 8, 8. In addition, the source also mentioned five major details of the new iPad Pro, including display screen without bangs, Face ID horizontal support, new Apple Pencil, external display output 4K HDR video and a new magnetic interface.
