Is this the 12.9-inch Apple iPad Pro?

12.9-inch Apple iPad Pro

Another day, another leaked photo. Another showcase from China of a prototype of the upcoming 12.9-inch Apple iPad Pro. This is still a rumor but this photo looks like the real thing, at least, for a prototype.

Looking at the phone makes me think it’s a MacBook Air. The size is too large for a slate but it seems wider like a bigger iPad. The iPad Pro measuring 12.9-inches is said to have either 4096 x 3072 resolution (4K) or 2K resolution screen. Impressive.

The iPad Pro prototype also features an aluminium casing. You can see the standard Apple logo and camera lens. There’s another rumor though that this pro iPad will be targeted for the enterprise and the education market which means consumers won’t get this easily.

I’m still not convinced that Apple is working on an iPad Pro but I can’t wait for Apple to prove me otherwise. Looking forward to more leaks until Apple makes an announcement before the year ends. We’ll see.
