The fall season is quickly approaching, which means new devices in Apple’s iPhone and iPad product lines.
In the case of the upcoming iPad Pro model, the new tablet is widely expected to see smaller dimensions paired with slightly larger displays, as well as the addition of a TrueDepth camera system for Face ID.
A report from late July detailing these changes also suggested that Apple would be relocating the iPad Pro’s Smart Connector, and now there’s evidence of a new case that backs up this change.
The July report noted that the iPad Pro’s Face ID system would require the device to be in vertical orientation to work.
In turn, this would mean the Smart Connector — used for connecting keyboards to the tablet — would be moving from the side edge to the bottom, near the Lightning port.
This implied that keyboards, including Apple’s own Smart Keyboard, would need to be used with the iPad Pro in vertical position.
