Full Story

Oh, boy, did you hear the latest? The iPhone 16 series is gonna have these super slim bezels, even slimmer than what we’ve seen on the iPhone 15. And guess what’s making it possible? This fancy new tech called BRS, short for Border Reduction Structure. They’re planning to slap it on all four models of the iPhone 16, set to make a grand entrance this September.

Now, switching gears to the iPad scene – there’s some buzz around the iPad Pro (2024) getting a waistline trim too. A leaker, who goes by “Instant Digital” on Weibo, spilled the beans. They’re talking about the 11-inch model flaunting a 7.12mm bezel and the 12.9-inch version going even slimmer at 7.08mm.

And, oh! The iPad Pro (2024) is breaking new ground with an OLED display. That’s a first for iPads. Plus, they’re throwing in a landscape-oriented front-facing camera and shaking things up with a redesigned camera island. With OLED’s sleekness, these tablets are gonna look sharp and slim. And the brains? The mighty 3nm M3 chips.

When can we get our hands on these beauties? There’s a whisper from Asia, specifically It Home, hinting at a March 26th reveal. But Mark Gurman from Bloomberg is playing it cool, suggesting a later release. Meanwhile, the iPad Air (2024) models are already on the move, featuring the M2 SoC and that landscape camera.

Now, about the iPad Air getting a new sibling. Apple’s playing it smart. With the OLED iPad Pro possibly making wallets cry, they’re introducing a 12.9-inch iPad Air with an LCD screen. It’s like saying, “Hey, want a big screen without the big price? We got you.”

And there’s more! Rumors are swirling about a new Apple Pencil, a snazzy Magic Keyboard, and maybe, just maybe, MagSafe support for the iPad Pro models. But don’t hold your breath for a big reveal event. Apple’s likely to drop the news with a press release, nice and easy.

So, what do you think? Exciting times ahead, huh?
