Fans have expected a plethora of new Apple products to come out of the California tech giant's September 7 launch event - the iPad Pro 2 being among those expected alongside the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, and Apple Watch 2. But the company decided instead to hold off from even saying anything about any new iPad or iMac.

Of course, there's no doubt that Apple's next-generation tablet has kept a lot of fans worldwide expected. Nonetheless, it's a smart move by Apple to not include the iPad Pro 2 - assuming its naming tradition continues on, in the last Apple event. That, of course, has led to more rumors that can surely create more commercial hype towards it.

The new iPad Pro is believed to be slimmer and lighter than the previous model, and may come in three sizes: 12.9-inch, 9.7-inch, and 10.5-inch. This time though, the iPad Pro 2 might come with more Pencil-compatible apps to enhance the nifty accessory's writing and drawing capabilities.

Presently, rumors state that the iPad Pro 2 will run on an A10X chip complete with a 325 GB internal memory. Water-resistance might be the iPad Pro 2's new key feature and might omit the headphone jack as well, as in the case of the iPhone 7. The previous model's True Tone display will also feature just the same in the upcoming one.

Apple is just keeping things under wraps to keep their customers excited about the device. But for now, all news related to the iPad Pro 2 will remain as rumors pending confirmation from the company.
