Apple is going to hold a ‘Spring loaded’ event on Tuesday where it is expected to reveal a new iPad, iPad mini, and iPad Pro. MacRumors has obtained the dimensions of the iPad Pro.
The information apparently comes from an accessories maker.
The 12.9-inch iPad Pro is likely to boast a mini-LED display and this could make it a little thicker, per the source, which the outlet cautions is new on the leaking scene.
The model is expected to be 280.65mm (11.04 inches) long, 215mm (8.46 inches) wide, and 6.4mm (0.25 inches) thick. The current model is the same length and width, but it’s 5.9mm thick, which means the new version will be 0.5mm thicker. The thickness has apparently increased to accommodate a mini-LED screen.
Today’s report also claims that 12.9-inches iPad Pro’s camera bulge will measure in at 27.67mm by 27.67mm, which makes it slightly larger than the 27mm x 27mm camera bump on the current model.
11-inch iPad Pro may feature a smaller camera bump
The source has also revealed that the 11-inch iPad Pro will be 247.6mm (9.74 inches) by 178.5mm (7.02 inches) by 5.9mm (0.23 inches) and this isn’t really a deviation from the current measurements. This model’s camera bump, on the other hand, is expected to be noticeably smaller than its predecessor’s. The current model has a 26.7mm by 26.7mm camera bump and its successor is likely to feature a 25.3mm by 25.3mm camera island.
The upcoming iPad Pro models will likely be powered by the A14X Bionic, which is said to be about as good as the M1 processor that powers the new Macs. They may also offer Thunderbolt connectivity. There were also rumors that the speaker holes will be relocated and their quantity will reduce by two-thirds.
