On the body of the new iPad Pro may indeed be an additional connector for connecting external accessories, as predicted by the insider OnLeaks. This is indicated by the cover picture for the future of the tablet, which has a characteristic notch in the bottom of the rear panel.
Of course, there is no guarantee that the cover, pictured here, is genuine and has been designed specifically for the iPad Pro. However, as practice shows, often the Apple provides manufacturers accessories drawings for future products, allowing them to prepare for release.
The image clearly shows that the case has not one, but two cutouts for the connectors. One at the rear, while the other — side. This fact is indirectly refutes rumors about the possible relocation of the Smart Connector, which probably will remain on the right side.
iPad with Face ID
Perhaps on the back of your iPad Pro will be a secondary interface. According Mac Otakara, it will allow to reorient the tablet to use in portrait, not landscape orientation, as used by the majority of users. It is necessary for the correct operation of Face ID, making the identification only in vertical mode.
