One of Apple’s biggest plans for 2017 will be making edge-to-edge displays. Apple has made thinner and thinner bezels for iPads, but now, they’re getting rid of them entirely it seems. In addition, it will be the iPhone 10th anniversary, which makes the new redesign more understandable. So, we’ll probably see the first big design change in the new iPads coming this spring.
The rumors come courtesy of a Chinese Weibo user, whose previous leaks have turned out to be true. One of the three models, referred to internally within Apple as “Ferrari,” is suspected to be the iPhone 8, and will have a completely new design that also includes a bezel-less AMOLED screen.
The rumors also suggest that it will have a different logic board design. The board should be divided into two parts connected by a flex cable. One board would house the A11 chip and NAND flash storage, while a second board will contain Wi-Fi, cellular and other chips.
