Apple's high-end iPad Pro slates are the embodiment of premium hardware, with each new year adding more innovation to the pile, and the 2019 or 2020 iPad Pros are set to build on the fantastic 2018 models.

2019 has already been an interesting year for slates, thanks to Samsung doing its best to provide competition in the form of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6, and also because it's the year Apple released a bespoke operating system for tablets, iPadOS. So will Apple finish out the year strong with the launch of a new iPad Pro?

New iPad Pros in 2019? Here's everything we know about Apple's next tablet

  New iPad Pros in 2019? Here's everything we know about Apple's next tablet All of the buzz about new premium models on the horizon.To recap: On Sept. 10, Apple introduced the newest iPad, keeping the entry-level price at $329 but slightly enlarging the display, adding a keyboard dock connector and -- well, that was about it. Before that, back in March, the company unveiled two new models -- the modestly updated iPad Air and iPad Mini. But it's been nearly a year since the company last refreshed its iPad Pro lineup, leading to speculation that new versions may be waiting in the wings.

Latest rumor: The latest leak suggests the next iPad Pro will have extra camera lenses and a 3D sensor system, but that it won't land until sometime in 2020. We've also heard thatthe upcoming iPad Pro devices could ditch the LCD screens of old, and instead go for miniLED.

Apple has already had a knockout year with product launches, between its new iPhone line which includes the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max, the Apple Watch 5, and the new entry-level iPad 10.2. This latter sits at the opposite side of the price spectrum the iPad Pros.

There haven't been too many leaks or rumors surrounding the new iPad Pro models yet, but the few we've heard paint a pretty picture, so the newer slates could be the best iPads of Apple's portfolio. We’d assume there are two different sized models, like 2018’s iPad Pro 11 and iPad Pro 12.9, but iPad Pros have seen different sized models in the past, so a change here wouldn’t be unheard of.

iPad Pro 12.9 (2018)

  iPad Pro 12.9 (2018) Apple rules the tablet roost, but is its newest iPad Pro a worthy addition to the iPad line?Despite being called the iPad Pro, as in, ‘for professionals’, the new iPad Pro 12.9 has features that make it the best of the bunch for all users, whether you want it for streaming content and playing games, creating skillful sketches or musical masterpieces, or just juggling loads of different work documents.

Release date . It’s more than a year and a half since the 2018 iPad was launched back in March 2018, but we don’t have long to wait until the new iPad will Pre-orders for the new iPad start at 1pm (UK time) on Friday 13 September, and it will go on sale on 25 September 2019 .

Price . The new iPad Air is priced midway between the Pro line (which are very expensive for all but the most demanding creative professionals ) and The iPad Air ( 2019 ) is available to buy now direct from Apple, while EE has announced it will be stocking it soon: you'll be able to order from ee.co.uk

Beyond rough guesses, and a few rumors here and there we don’t know much yet at all, which is why we’re speculating with our dream wish-list. First though, here's what we have heard.

Cut to the chase

  • What is it? The next generation of Apple's premium iPad Pro tablets
  • When is it out? Likely early 2020
  • How much will it cost? A range of prices depending on size, but all rather pricey

New iPad Pro 2019 release date and price

There was talk of a new iPad Pro model landing in October 2019, but that of course didn't happen, and it's now looking unlikely that you'll be able to get your hands on the slate by Christmas.

As for when the new iPad Pro will arrive, at least one source suggests we might be waiting until March 2020, while another has said it will land sometime during the first half of 2020.

Of course, there’s no official confirmation that new tablets will be released at all, but new iPad Pro registration details filed by Apple itself suggest there will be.

iPad Pro 12.9 (2018)

If you know much about the iPad Pro devices, you know the price is the most off-putting thing about them, as they’re the definition of high-end premium gadgetery, and we wouldn’t expect that to change with the new iPad Pro models, especially if they have any of the upgrades we’re hoping for.

For context, the current iPad Pro 11 costs $799 / £769 / AU$1,229 for the option with least storage space, which is 64GB, and $1,549 / £1,519 / AU$2,349 for 1TB capacity, and the iPad Pro 12.9 prices range from $999 / £969 / AU$1,529 to $1,899 / £1,869 / AU$2,869 for the same storage.

Then there are the peripherals, which some would argue are an intrinsic part of the iPad Pro experience. The Apple Pencil stylus will set you back $129 / £119 / AU$199, and the Smart Keyboard Folio keyboard and case costs $169 / £169 / AU$299, so if you’re paying a lot of money for the most premium device you can, you can end up dropping $2,197 / £2,157 / AU$3,367.

While the cost of the peripherals will likely stay the same, we may see the iPad Pro prices themselves creep higher, though we don’t know how high just yet.

New iPad Pro 2019 news and rumors

The main iPad Pro 2019 leak so far is a photo supposedly showing the back of a dummy unit, on which three cameras are clearly visible.

That would be quite an upgrade, as the current iPad Pro models only have one rear lens. We don't know the specs of this camera trio, but it would make sense if they were the same as the iPhone 11 Pro, which has a 12MP f/1.8 main lens, a 12MP f/2.0 telephoto one and a 12MP f/2.4 ultra-wide one.

However, another source claims the next iPad Pro could have a 3D depth-sensing lens. We've since heard again about a 3D sensor system on the slate. This would apparently allow you to create 3D reconstructions of rooms, people and objects, and would be joined by two other lenses.

Other than the three cameras there aren't any surprises in the leaked image - the back looks to be metal with roughly the same design as the iPad Pro 11.

A rumor from a major Apple analyst suggests future iPad Pro devices could have miniLED screens instead of LED, which would be a big change for two reasons. Firstly, it means screen quality would be better, as in general LED displays are higher quality than LCD (which we get into further). Secondly, miniLED is a lightweight technology, so iPad Pros with that screen tech could be thinner and lighter than current models.

  Biggest Black Friday 2019 iPad deals available now: Huge savings with $250 10.2-inch iPad With Apple's iPad range getting bigger and more confusing than ever, we go through how to choose the right one for you this year.Unlike last year, Apple hasn't released a new version of the top-end iPad Pro. But the recent 10.2-inch budget-line iPad is better than ever.

The analyst suggests the miniLED screens will debut in iPad Pro devices in 2020, so if the new Apple tablets come out in late 2019 they'll probably have LCD screens for now – but if, like some rumors say, the next iPad Pros will be out in early 2020, the new tablets could have miniLED displays.

What we want to see in the new iPad Pro

As we don't know much about the upcoming iPad Pro series, we've put together a few things we'd like to see.

1. Improved display technology

Previous generations of iPad Pro used LCD screens, as have all iPads in general, so it’s clear Apple are committed to the technology in its slates. However, LCD screens have a few problems, like poorer black reproduction that you don’t get in OLED or AMOLED displays.

Samsung is really stepping up its tablet game, and the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 has a Super AMOLED screen with a better resolution than iPad Pros, so if Apple wants to stay competitive it’s going to have to increase its screen quality.

Better screen quality is a particular necessity in the iPad Pro, as many professionals use the device to work – many of which really need the best display tech possible to correctly view color, details, or anything else they’re working on.

2. Longer battery life

The iPad Pro (2018) range comes with decent battery life, but if you’re using your iPad Pro for something strenuous like video editing or gaming the charge can drop quite quickly.

Even if you’re not putting the iPad Pro’s processor through its paces, the giant screen often means the battery will drop quicker than you’d like, so after a day or two of normal use you’ll find the battery pretty low.

The best iPad 2019: is the iPad Air, Mini or Pro the best for you?

  The best iPad 2019: is the iPad Air, Mini or Pro the best for you? Whether you want the best iPad Pro or the best cheaper iPad, you'll find the best options here.Whether you're looking at the iPad Pro line, premium tablets with all the power of a computer; smaller slates like the iPad Air and iPad Mini with various sizes and specifications, or the base iPad line, there are many different options open to you, which complicates the process of finding the best iPad.

With iPad Pros getting more and more like laptops, it’s time for Apple to really boost the battery life of its slates.

3. Quicker charging

Just as the battery capacity could be improved, so could the speed it takes to charge that power pack up.

When you use the iPad Pro charger that comes in the box, it can often take a matter of hours to power the tablet up to full, and that’s just too slow if you’re popping into a coffee shop to charge up or can only plug your slate in for a short while.

Apple sells 30W chargers on its website, so we know the tablets can support the fast charging, and we’d love to see this kind of adapter in the box – alternatively, we’d like to see the base charging speed increased somewhat.

4. Improved Face ID

While Apple’s Face ID systems on the iPad and iPhone were originally touted as market-leading, they’ve become rather overshadowed by facial recognition systems in other smartphones, and now it can feel a lot quicker to turn on an Android device than an iOS one.

In the most recent iPad Pro range, Face ID felt a little unreliable – it wouldn’t always pick up our face, and when it did it could be a little slow to do so. We’d like to see this change, with upgrades to the facial unlocking system, because at the moment it’s quicker to type in a password than try and convince the tablet to recognize you.

5. More RAM

The iPad Pro devices are meant to be premium devices, but it’s hard to argue that case when you look at their RAM – 4GB really isn't’ enough at this point (the 1TB models come with 6GB, but that’s still fairly low).

Many high-end smartphones now come with 8GB RAM, as does the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6, and some even come with 12GB. This extra processing power is just as useful for navigating the user interface as it is playing games, rendering video, or arranging your files, so it’s quite a surprise the the iPad Pros have a below-average RAM.

  iPad Air (2019) Apple's iPad Air has resurfaced, and while it doesn't look very exciting, it does have some horsepower underneath its dated hood.No, it’s not as cute as the baby, the 7.9-inch iPad mini, and its traditional looks make it a wallflower compared to the head-turning premium iPad Pro 11 and iPad Pro 12.9. It took us a few days of testing to realize why it’s still important in 2019.

If the RAM was improved in the new iPad Pro range, the tablets would be much more useful for many different business and leisure functions – and the devices would be able to square off against the competitors more.

6. Better Apple Pencil connectivity

If there’s one common complaint with most people who’ve used an Apple Pencil, it’s how it connects to the iPad Pro physically – it connects to the slate with a magnetic bar on the top of the device (when it’s held horizontally), with which it wirelessly charges.

However, if you’ve ever put your iPad Pro in a bag while the iPad Pro is connected (which you very likely will do if you’re taking it to work or a coffee shop), you’ll pull it out again, only to discover the pencil is missing. This is because it doesn’t take much work to accidentally knock the Apple Pencil off, or have it fall off in a bag or while pulling it out the bag.

Samsung has a physical dock in the Galaxy Tab S6 for the S Pen, and if there was something similar in the 2019 iPad Pro range, it’d get rid of those frustrating occasions when you pull the tablet out your bag without its stylus.

7. A 5G iPad Pro

We’ve already heard that Apple is planning to release 5G iPad Pro models that let you use your cell network to connect to the internet when out and about, just like you can do on 4G now with your iPad Pro. This rumor states that’ll be in 2021, but we’d like to see it sooner.

With advances in cloud computing, 5G is going to be an increasingly important part of many different workspaces, so it’ll be important for tablets designed for professionals (like, for example, an iPad Pro) to have the connection.

Imagine being able to game on the go on a massive 12.9-inch tablet, use online processing power to edit a photograph, or download an entire file of documents in seconds so you can work on them straight away – this kind of functionality is why 5G tablets are important.

8. A redesigned Smart Keyboard Folio

Like the Apple Pencil, the Smart Keyboard Folio is a peripheral that sometimes has its problems.

For one, when the Folio is folded, its keys are face-out, so you can sometimes accidentally find yourself pressing them. It’s not backlit either, when a keyboard of its price really could be, and on top of that it can be rather noisy too.

The Apple Pencil had a poorer original version before it became a more useful tool like it is today, so perhaps a redesigned Smart Keyboard will be a powerful tool for productivity too.
