The iPad Pro 2 has been rumored to be in the works. It is, reportedly, set to be under the hybrid category and will replace the regular laptop. In addition, other reports reveal that the Surface Book, Lenovo Yoga, and XPS 13 will be its competition.
Word has it that the Cupertino-based tech giant is adding its finishing touches to the iPad Pro 2.

We can be sure that iPad Pro 2 will follow in the same path. Therefore, iPad Pro 2 will feature the best hardware parts that Apple has to offer.”
Interestingly, the addition of Apple’s Magic Mouse and Magic Trackpad is a feature that may help the much awaited tablet replace laptops. Also, other sources report that the iPad Pro 2 may sport the Touch Bar, a new Apple Pencil, reduced bezels, and will be water resistant.
