It’s another new week, and another Apple leak, with this one pertaining to the iPad Pro, or iPad Plus as it has also been dubbed – but whatever it ends up being called, this is Apple’s alleged larger iPad.
Photos of a case for the gadget have been shown by a Chinese iPad accessory catalogue, courtesy of that common source of leaks, Nowhereelse.fr (via BGR).
This would seem to be a bigger case fit for a 12in version of the iPad (or indeed 12.9in, if other rumours are to be believed), and it has a different design on the top and bottom of the case, which is consistent with the fact that the iPad Pro will supposedly boast four speakers – two at the bottom, and two up top. Presumably for better sound quality for presentations, and indeed watching movies on that large screen.
As always, though, you’ll be needing a fairly hefty pinch of salt to go with this one. The evidence that a supersized iPad is on the way is certainly mounting, though, and it definitely makes sense that Apple is going to try something new to spark tablet sales, which hit quite a slump last year.
Some have suggested that even the iPad Pro won’t be enough to prompt an iOS tablet recovery, though.
As mentioned, the tablet is likely to be either a 12.2in or 12.9in model, and will likely be produced with an optional stylus accessory.
