This year is going to be really very busy for Apple. In fact happening is going to be taken to a whole new level with their bucket full of products waiting to be rolled out into the market. First we had the two variants of the upcoming iPhone 6 and then the iWatch, the Retina MacBook Air and Touch ID-enabled iPads. On top of all this, Apple is also planning to bring forward an iPad Pro which will come with an increased form factor on the current 9.7-inch-displaying iPad Air. So far we have no grounds on which we can base some solid suspicions but a dummy leak of the enlarged slate has been seen on Weibo.
Apple’s new idea at the split-screen multitasking was also revealed a few days earlier which it is planning to introduce to the iPad with iOS 8 and this has flared up the suspicion regarding the iPad Pro. With various tidbits of info having touted a panel as large as 12.9 inches, the tablet is going to overshadow the lower-end MacBook Air as far as the display and real estate is concerned. Internally, the tablet would be powerful enough to take care of the needs of the professionals and will be perfect for those who are looking for an upgrade from the current iPad platform.
As far as the profile of the tablet is concerned, the iPad Pro dummy looks very much similar to the iPad Air / Retina iPad mini. In fact, due to the enlarged real estate, the model looks like a stretched out version of the current iPad roster.
