A Japanese blog is reporting that the new iPads coming out later this year will feature smaller bodies and no headphone jack. Others have also reported that maybe new iPads will have a “notch” and no Home button like the iPhone X to allow the display to go to the edges.
Such rumors are easy to throw out there though, as Apple sometimes does carry design features over from one device to another. The headphone jack rumor may be more probable than the notch rumor, though, as Apple has been producing lightning cable EarPods for a while now and the AirPods are a huge success. If the screen does go to the edges, there is also the problem of how to fit a audio jack under the screen with no edge space on the device.
