The rumor mill is flying and new stories and photos are appearing every day. There is definitely a new iPad coming. Let’s hope 1/2 the iPad Pro rumors are true. Which 1/2 are you hoping for? Here is a list of rumored specs.
- 12.2 to 12.9-inch high resolution display
- A8X or maybe A9X processor

There have been rumors that Apple Inc. is working on a new 12-inch iPad, called the Apple iPad Pro or also referred to as iPad Plus. It is said this will compete with the Microsoft Surface 12-inch tablet, as well as various Samsung 12-inch tablets currently available in the market. However, I say this is in it’s own category. I’m not sure I will like this size, but I do like the specs and features.
Measuring 305.31 mm x 220.8 mm x 7 mm, the iPad Pro will apparently feature a 12.9-inch display, making it Apple’s largest tablet yet, and will be powered by the Apple A8X/A9 chip with 2 GB of RAM. Other rumors claim that the iPad pro will be powered by an A9 processor with 4 GB of RAM and 11,000 mAh battery, along with 16 GB, 32 GB, 64 GB and 128 GB storage options. The iPad Pro is also expected to feature Apple’s famous Touch ID Fingerprint scanner and a new hepatic stylus, while housing two or possibly four speakers.
The iPad Pro is rumored to cost “somewhere between the iPad Air and MacBook Air” and has been currently pegged for launch at the upcoming Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC).
Wait – is this Apple’s long-anticipated iPad Pro?
At the end of the day, I’m excited to see this new tablet. I think it could be my in-between machine.
