If the alleged news comes true then the Apple iPad Pro which has been an ongoing rumor for no less than a year and half will be a larger version pf the iPad Air. With a display measuring at 12.9-inches, the yet-unannounced and demo piece of iPad Pro stolen will be yet another concept in the Cupertino based company’s listing. So far the larger tablet has remained elusive, but in the recent times we’ve been seeing some purported live images of one or two bumper cases for it as well an artist take the slate’s looks beyond expectations. Finally, I don’t think so, we here got a leaked iPad Pro unit, detailed with its dimensions.
A new iPad Pro leak claims to detail its measurements, and also suggests that the screen will be 12.9″ instead of 12.2-inches where the speculations had previously settled. Schematics reveal a footprint measuring at 305.7 x 222.6mm. A 12.9-inch screen in 4:3 ratio should be 196.6 x 261.2mm, which would mean a screen-to-body ratio pf about 65.7%. Compared that to the current iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 which both flaunt the 71.7 percent mark.
Although, the next iPad Pro is aimed at the enterprise market, it may feature an ultra high-resolution display and an A8X processor. Such a large tablet would be prone to bending though, if the designers overdo it on the slimming down trend.
Rumored iPad Pro Specifications
- 12.2 to 12.9-inch high resolution display
- A8X processor
- 2 GB RAM
- iOS 8
- Touch ID
- USB 3.0 ports (perhaps)
- White/Silver, White/Gold, Black/Space Gray
A single port on the short side is also pictured, could be a USB Type-C port, which introduced by Apple with 12-inch MacBook. A volume rocker, headphone jack and a power button are also positioned on the sides, while a camera is drawn in one of the corners on the back.

Notably, now that the source drawing is @OnLeaks, but the blueprint itself is dated December 2014 and five months later we’re yet to see more imminent proofs of the iPad Pro’s existence, so take it with a pinch of salt while don’t get overly excited. For now!
