Some say Apple is changing this with the iPad Pro, but we'll have to wait and see how this shakes out. But now the website MySmartPrice has mocked up renders based on leaked schematics that visualize what the new iPad Pro will look like.
The removal of the home button will diminish de bezels and increase the screen size of the devices.
The home button and 3.5mm headphone jack is absent in this mock-up, as is the famous notch which houses the front-facing camera required for FaceID to scan the user's face. Both the iPad Pro models are expected to get the A12X chipset and support for Apple Pencil.
On the right side of the tablet is the volume rocker along with appears to be one more button.

However, Trend Micro strongly denied allegations that the apps had been "stealing user data" and sending it to a server in China. Every app in this group-or should it be a "practice" since they're all doctors?-appeared to steal data in the same way.
After digging into the beta code for forthcoming software release iOS 12 on his iPad Pro, Apple rumour site 9to5Mac writer Guilherme Rambo uncovered a Face ID set up menu, effectively confirming the feature will be present. There are two speakers at the bottom as well which flank the charging port.
"The volume buttons are present on the right-hand side of the iPad Pro, but there is a unusual button-like artefact present on the same side, and even @OnLeaks could not figure out what it was".
Moving on to the back, you can see iPhone 7-like antenna lines at the top and bottom edge of the tablet. Incidentally, we've seen conflicting reports as to whether or not Face ID on the iPad will work in landscape mode. We should know more about the devices as the launch nears. The new iPhones are expected to have refreshed internals and new colors offered.
According to the rumor mill, Apple is unlikely to switch to OLED panels this year. Also, the smart connector is located above the Lightning port, instead of on the side of the device as it is on current iPad Pros.
That leaves the pricier iPad Pro range in need of an update. For example, there's no headphone jack, which makes me want to cry.
