That news was based on the discovery of an asset in an iOS 12 developer beta, which showed a tablet icon with drastically reduced bezels and no Home button in the lower chin area. It looks like the new iPad Pros will get a new design and not look anywhere close to the last generation iPads. Additionally, the pair of new iPad Pro tablets will come with a USB-C port.
It is also suggested that the iPads will be more expensive than their predecessors - so north of a grand, then.
A USB-C connector for charging and syncing data, the first time Apple is bringing this charging standard to its iOS devices.
Apple, you are spoiling us: just a month after launching the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR on the world, Tim Cook and friends have got another gadget extravaganza lined up - and we're expecting the rest of Apple's product lines to get some love this time.

Today we've got another report that lends credence to reports for an upcoming iPad Pro redesign.
Sources including Bloomberg say a new Mac Mini is also on the way next week, the first upgrade to this particular Mac computer since 2014 - "new processors and features" are promised for users, but we'll have to wait and see about the details. It will include more squared-off sides like the iPhone 5, 5S and SE from a few years ago. As per the report, the display will not be OLED but LCD panels, the chipset used will be a variant of A12 Bionic used on iPhone XS and an updated Apple Pencil.
Word on the street is that Apple is likely to bring next-generation Mac Mini with latest Intel chips for normal home and office purposes. The screen of the MacBook Air will have a much higher resolution and slimmer bezels compared to the previous generation MacBook Air.
Here's what the company is preparing for the Mac line, according to people familiar with the company's plans. The former would resemble a MacBook Air but with more recent Apple designs and technologies like the Retina (HiDPI) display, Thunderbolt 3, and smaller bezels.
Apple's also working on refreshed iMacs, iMac Pros, and 12-inch MacBooks with faster processors, and at least some of these updates could be ready for the October launch. While Apple has launched the iMac Pro to cater to needs of professionals, there's no denying the fact that there's still a market for not only the iMac Pro but also the Mac mini.
