Is this Apple's long-anticipated iPad Pro?

For quite some time, rumors surrounding a 12.9-inch Apple tablet have attracted the internet grapevine. While the device has not been confirmed by the Cupertino giant, speculations have persisted, thanks to leaks that give us a glimpse of how the device may look like.

These rumors, however, do not agree with each other. There are claims which put the iPad Pro at a measurement of 12.2 inches, contrary to the larger speculation.

In a recent article, Yibada took note of reports, which cited estimates that indicate dimensions of 12.03 x 8.64 x 0.28 inches, as well as casing stats at 12.09 x 8.74 x 0.28 inches.

According to the outlet, new images of an alleged iPad Pro casing has surfaced, looking similar to the iPad Air 2's casing. Familiar holes appear to suggest so.

Looking back at other rumors, it's also said that the iPad Mini 4 will draw much of its design inspiration from the current Air tablet.

Also known as the iPad Air Plus / iPad Plus, the iPad Pro is touted to pack similar specs as the iPhone 7, International Business Times noted. In particular, the tablet is expected to use the Apple Watch Sport's similar 7000 Series aluminium material. Such is believed to be 60% stronger than the average aluminum.

As told by The Christian Times, the alleged iPad Pro is purported to arrive in Fall. Followers would remember that Apple made noise in the second half of 2014, revealing its powerful flagship duo, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in September. Sooner, the company unveiled the iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3.

MacRumors previously took note of an alleged iPad Pro mockup, sporting a mysterious port found on one side of the hardware. This feature, reportedly, could either be a secondary Lightning port or a USB-C port. This indicates hope for an accessory connection and / or multiple methods of charging.

The leaked images likewise sported an earphone jack, a speaker grille, a microphone, a camera lens with light sensor and volume adjustment buttons, Trusted Reviews wrote.

The iPad Pro is expected to pack an Apple A8X or A9 chip, 2 GB of RAM, Touch ID, a USB 3.0 connector, a mouse, an optional keyboard and an optional stylus.

The idea behind such stylus has been tipped by KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. Know Your Mobile took note of his remarks, which said, "Coupled with its unfavourable cost structure, high selling prices may turn consumers off if the 12.9-inch iPad is always bundled with [the stylus]."

"We therefore expect the stylus to be an optional accessory before sufficient user feedback is received," the analyst went on.

The iPad Pro is expected to cost more than the iPad Air 2, ValueWalk cited, being rumored to start at $699. It is said to be offered in 16GB, 64GB and 128GB storage options.

Can the iPad Pro boost declining iPad sales?
