The iPhone X has brought an all-new design language to the iPhone, complete with jaw-dropping infinite display. But how would Apple’s iPad look if it adopted the same bezel-free aesthetics as Apple’s tenth anniversary iPhone? Concept artist Martin Hajek decided to find out.
Check out a few of his images below.
“I present – the iPad X – same form factor as the iPad Pro 12.9″ but with a much bigger screen,” Hajek writes. “Oh, and it also has a notch,” he adds, with tongue in cheek. “Sorry.”
While we’re not sure that the resulting iPad would be called the iPad X (X being the Roman numeral for 10 and the iPad not yet having had its tenth birthday), the design is certainly pretty attractive. Switching the design language to something similar to the iPhone X would also make sense, since Apple has shown time and time again that it likes to have a certain uniformity between its products.
Recent reports have suggested that Apple will introduce some big design changes to the iPad lineup next year, including the idea that it will follow the iPhone in ditching the home button. Much like its diminutive sibling, the iPad 2018 could also adopt a True Depth camera (with Face ID unlocking) and edge-to-edge display to the iPad.
