#Apple #iPadPro2iPad Pro 2 release date, specs: Upcoming tablet to come with powerful A10X chip? : Following the launch of the iPad Pro 9.7 earlier this year, rumors about the iPad Pro 2 have been buzzing online.

Fans were surprised when the Cupertino-based company failed to debut a tablet at last month’s iPhone 7 launch as it seemed as though the timing was right for an iPad Pro refresh, but new rumors claim that the tablet could make an appearance at another Apple event in spring 2017 and that it will be more powerful than ever as it will come with Apple’s next chip.

According to Tech Radar, it is possible that the iPad Pro 2 will arrive with the upcoming A10X chip deemed to be far more powerful than the current A10 chip found in the iPhone 7. According to a Weibo leaker, the A10X chip has a single-core Geekbench score of 4236 and a multi-core score of 6588.

That’s significantly higher than the A10’s scores as it has a single-core score of 3490 and multi-core score of 5580. The iPad Pro 2 is expected to come in two versions — a 12.9-inch model and a 9.7-inch variant. It will also likely come in the same color options as its predecessor, so tech fans may not get anything more other than the usual Silver, Gold, White, and Rose Gold offerings.

Apart from an upgraded chip, the tablet is also expected to have better cameras as the current 9.7-inch version has a 12-megapixel iSight camera, while the 12.9-inch model has an 8-megapixel camera. It is also expected to be dust and waterproof, just like the current iPhone models. The tablet is rumored to come with 32, 128, and 256 GB variants.

As for the price, it is expected that the iPad Pro 2 will start at $599 to $929 for the 9.7-inch model, while the 12.9-inch version is estimated to start at $799 for the 32 GB version. The iPad Pro 2 is said to be released in March 2017. Source: vinereport
