A leaked computer screenshot allegedly showing inventory of Urban Armor Gear iPad Pro cases, hints at the near-launch of the rumored 10.5 inch iPad Pro tablet. The image, which comes from an unknown Apple vendor, shows there’ll be three cases for the iPad Pro 10.5 inch tablet that will be available in June.
According to a KGI report back in August last year, the iPad Pro 10.5 inch release date was slated alongside the new low-cost 9.7 inch iPad. Although, the 9.7 inch iPad launched in March.
Dan Provost, the co-founder of Studio Neat, says a 10.5 inch screen (10.47 inch, to be precise) on the iPad Pro makes perfect sense since the width of the new iPad would be the same as the height of the iPad mini.
iPad Pro 10.5 inch Features & Specs
The iPad Pro 10.5 inch model is expected to come with more RAM than the current models. It will apparently come with a modified version of the Apple A10X processor. The design of the new tablet is expected to remain the same as the existing models.
The 10.5 inch iPad Pro tablet will have slimmer bezels, to keep the dimensions closer to that of the 9.7 inch iPad Pro. The 10.5 inch iPad Pro could also replace the current 9.7 inch iPad Pro.
Apple had previously been rumored to drop the iconic home button, a feature of the iPhone ever since Steve Jobs unveiled the first handset in 2007. Experts on the Apple-o-sphere suggest it’s highly unlikely that the feature will also debut on iPad, for the foreseeable future, given that Apple has been having trouble implementing a Touch ID solution.
iPad Pro 10.5 inch Release Date
As of yet, there is no word on the street on the 10.5 inch iPad Pro release date. However, rumors suggest a May launch for the tablets. Some Apple fanboys suspect Apple will wait until the Worldwide Developer Conference on June 5, to launch the three different iPad Pro tablets this year. Apple is expected to release new versions of iOS, macOS, watchOS, tvOS, as well as the Siri-powered Amazon Echo rival.
So, will Apple use WWDC 2017 to show off the 10.5 inch iPad Pro tablet? It’s possible, but until then we’ll have to wait and see what’s in store for us. Be sure to check back with us on June 5, 2017, for live updates on what’s happening at WWDC 2017.
