The Cupertino-based company is expected to bring the Apple fan base into hype once again. Leaks have swiftly spread the tech world on the latest update that Apple will soon launch their most recent iPad series in 2017. Apple is said to launch not just one iPad model, but three additions to the iPad line. They are rumored to come out of Apple's doors come early 2017. The latest twist is that one of them is projected to be a low-cost version of the iPad Pro 9.7.

According to reports by Tech Times, Barclays Research analysts namely Blayne Curtis, Christopher Hemmelgarn, Jerry Zhang and Thomas O'Malley conveyed that Apple will launch three new iPads by March 2017. Reports suggest that the latest iPads be the updated versions of 12.9-inch and 9.7-inch iPad Pro.

The Barclays analysts say that Apple is arranging to have the 9.7-inch iPad Pro at a much lesser price and promote it as a "low-cost" tablet. Low-cost version could probably indicate marketing the device at $499 or at a lower starting price compared to the predecessor 9.7-inch iPad, according to a research note obtained by MacRumors.

The lower-cost version of the iPad Pro 9.7 was purportedly rumored to no longer carry the name "Pro" due for the reason that it would be low cost with entry-level specs. There is still no clarity as to when refreshed versions of the iPad Pro 9.7 and 12.9 inch be specifically released. There are also reports that a 10.9 inch bezel-less variant which is similar to an iPad Air 2 is also impending to be launched, as further explained by iTechPost.

Tech Times also reported that the 2017 iPad Pro newest models will likewise support an updated version of Apple Pencil. The latest functionality support would lessen the price of the first-gen models. Meanwhile, the Apple Pencil 2 is expected to be a modified version with added features.
