A new asset we’ve discovered suggests that the new iPad Pro models will in fact have a display with rounded corners. The asset is a mask used to round the corners of some UI element, and its format is very clearly a rounded rectangle (or squircle). The asset mentions J3xx, which indicates a 2018 iPad model number (J3 followed by two more digits). There’s also another similar asset for this year’s entry level iPhone (codenamed N84), which seems to confirm the rumors that all of this year’s iPhones will have a design similar to iPhone X.
Rambo was able to run a modified device in the iOS simulator to show how iOS 12 would handle rounded corners. Check out the image below.
This isn't the first reference to a redesigned iPad Pro found in iOS 12 beta 5. Yesterday, an icon was discovered that appears to confirm thinner bezels and no Home button. References to Face ID were also uncovered.
Apple is expected to unveil its new iPad Pros this fall. Please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for updates.
