Apple is set to release three new iPads and a radically redesigned iPhone in 2017, according to Barclays research analysts.

Citing sources within the company's Asian supply chain, the analysts report that the Cupertino company will drop refreshed versions of the 9.7-inch and 12.9-inch iPads, an all-new bezel-less 10.9-inch iPad, and new 5-inch and 5.8-inch iPhones with curved, bezel-less designs (the bezel is the area surrounding the display).

Both iPhones will reportedly be bezel-free, however, only the 5.8-inch model will use OLED display technology, which should be sharper, brighter and more energy efficient than LCD. The report adds further weight to rumors first announced by KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (the world's most notorious and prolific Apple rumors expert), who first said all the way back in April that Apple would release an all-glass, bezel-free iPhone next year.

Apple's rumored new iPads and iPhones gives us a hint as to what its future plans are for the Home button. The new iPads, which will reportedly be released next spring, could be the first Apple device to give it the axe in order to achieve the bezel-less design. However, Barclays does not believe the Home button will move to an in-screen solution. It expects the screen to "extend vertically as well as horizontally," but exactly how we don't yet know.
