Apple iPhone 8 will debut a brand-new all-glass look, with a curved OLED display
Apple is widely-tipped to refresh the iPad Pro at its annual developers conference, WWDC, next month.
The Cupertino-based company is rumoured to introduce a new variation of the iPad Pro with a 10.5-inch edge-to-edge display squeezed into a physical form factor no bigger than the existing 9.7-inch iPad Pro model.
Images that purport to show cases designed for the upcoming 10.5-inch iPad Pro have appeared online, thanks to tipster Shai Mizrachi.
The leaked photographs show the four-speaker design that exists across the iPad Pro range.
However, the leaked cases also appear to show the same vertically stacked camera lens that have been rumoured for the iPhone 8.
Apple will purportedly use this new layout for augmented reality features.

The purported 10.5inch iPad case is only slightly larger than the current generation 9.7inch iPad
It's unclear whether the latest iPad will also use the layout for this purpose, or if the new vertically stacked camera is simply to bring consistency to the Apple range.
Another feature purportedly shared with the iPhone 8 is the new iPad's razor-thin bezels.
Apple is expected to use an edge-to-edge display to fit the larger screen size into the same physical footprint of the 9.7inch iPad.
Leakster Benjamin Geskin believes the iPad will use seven millimetre bezels around the display.

Meanwhile, the next-generation iPhone is rumoured to use four millimetre bezels around its OLED display.

Apple’s new iPads will also incorporate the same static Home Button that debuted on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
Some reports have suggested the iPad would ditch the physical button completely, like the next iPhone is rumoured to do.
Finally, Geskin believes that there will be no new iPad Mini this year.
Apple is reportedly distancing itself from this form-factor amid disappointing sales.
Meanwhile, iPhone 8 looks set to tick-off a number of long-standing Wish List features for Apple fans, including wireless charging, and an edge-to-edge display.

Apple will purportedly shrink the bezels around the display to keep the physical footprint small
The next-generation iPhone will also include OIS, Optical Image Stabilisation, to both lens used in the rear dual-camera set-up
Apple will also purportedly include 3D sensing facial recognition functionality in a dual front-facing camera set-up, as well as better speakers and enhanced waterproofing.
Elsewhere, the Apple iPhone 8, which will mark the 10th anniversary of the best-selling smartphone range, will reportedly include an all-new glass design closer to the iPhone 4 than the current generation.
It is also expected to ship with an OLED display with True Tone, Touch ID embedded beneath the glass display, and wireless distance charging.

Apple is expected to debut the iPhone 8 alongside the iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus, which will feature only a few minor upgrades, in September.
According to JPMorgan, these iterative updates will have some slight aesthetic changes when compared to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
The analyst note claims Apple will move from anodised aluminium so that it can include wireless charging capabilities.
