New iPad Pro Rumours: Smaller 12.2in Screen

The first piece of information about a new, larger-than-life iPad surfaced back in August, and we have since then heard various rumours about it: that it would have a 12.9” screen and Apple’s A8X processor, that it would arrive in early 2015, etc. However, Japanese website Macotakara offers some new details about the upcoming iPad Pro.

Namely, the tablet will most likely sport a 12.2” screen rather than a 12.9” one, and it will be thicker than the iPad Air 2 – somewhere between 6.9 and 7.1 mm. Macotakara accurately predicted specs for other Apple products in the past, which is why it is probably right about these details, too.

This new report also suggests that the production of the new iPad will be delayed because of the huge demand for the iPhone 6. As The Wall Street Journal finds out, the iPad Pro was supposed to go into production in December, but because of the reason mentioned above, it probably won’t come anytime soon. Apple’s top priority for now is to meet the demand for the new iPhone models.
