The new iPad Pro — the differences
It is also known that this year Apple will continue the tradition started by the iPhone 7, and will abandon the 3.5 mm Jack in branded tablets. As in the case with smartphones, such a decision is forced, as in place of the mini Jack to move the new iPad Smart Connector, which were located above the side face.
