The latest discovery in the beta versi of iOS 12.1 is that the software seems to support 4K external displays – something that is impossible any current iOS device, even when using the Apple-HDMI adapter.
This can support the idea that upcoming iPad Pros will offer USB-C, developer Steve Trought-Smith suggested Twitter. A virtualized 4K opti appears when running Apple & # 39; s iOS Simulator, which is used to test iPhe and iPad apps.
Apple is generally expected to introduce new iPad Pros this fall, possibly in October. In particular, the company needs to deliver updated 10.5 and 12.9-inch models with faster processors, edge-to-edge LCDs and Face ID. This is supported by other code sequences in iOS 12.1, including e for Face ID in landscape mode and another with the name & # 39; iPad2018Fall & # 39 ;.
It is less certain whether the tablets support USB-C, whether they are being replaced or in additi to Lightning. The first is perhaps unlikely because it is not csistent with the latest Apple iPhes and at the same time requires a new collecti of accessories.
At the same time, it would help to distinguish the tablets as true "pro" hardware, not ly thanks to 4K, but also to the faster 10-gigabit transfer speed of USB-C and power support up to 100 watts.
