Apple announced the 2017 iPad in place of the iPad Air 3 in March, but we still expect an iPad Pro 2 this year. It's not clear exactly when this will arrive, but the latest rumors suggest Apple will announce a 10.5-inch iPad Pro at WWDC in June. 

Apple introduced the 12.9-inch and 9.7-inch iPad Pro models in 2015 and 2016 and the company is currently pushing the larger model as the best laptop replacement. 

Rumors indicate Apple will deliver at least three new iPads in 2017, but some sources indicate that we will see up to four models. With one on store shelves, that leaves two or three new iPads left. It makes sense that we will also see two new iPad Pro 2017 models. This will likely be an iPad Pro 2 with a 12.9-inch display and an iPad Pro 2 with a 9.7-inch display. We continue to hear that the 9.7-inch iPad Pro 2 will arrive with a larger 10.5-inch display from a range of sources. 

9to5Mac shares a research note from Ming-Chi Kou that points to a 10.5-inch iPad Pro announcement at WWDC on June 5th.
