A few months ago, news came of the possibility of the Bite Apple company launching a new 12.9-inch tablet called the iPad Pro. For weeks, the idea was assimilated and many took it for granted until Digitimes appeared informing us about the abandonment of this idea by Cupertino’s people.
And it is today when, bombarded with leaks and rumours about the features and design of the next version of the iPhone , it appears to be leaking what could be the back of a larger iPad . Exactly the same 12.9 inches that have been talked about so much and as we see, in the picture appears the apple logo and the corresponding hole for the iSight camera .
The leak comes from the Chinese website Weibo and, although the logo and the camera situation could give veracity to the photographs, the general public is skeptical that, indeed, this is a piece of a future larger iPad .
This could be simply a joke by someone who is very good at using photo-retouching software, parts of other models that have been logoed to generate hype or simply prototypes of the millions that will be designed by manufacturers before they decide on a final product .
As a personal opinion, I highly doubt that a 12.9-inch iPad will ever make it to the Apple Store shelves. It would be a mercy, for example, the sales of the MacBook Air since a larger iPad could be enough for many users. With the arrival of the larger iPhone, Cupertino’s already has its small, and urgent, share of fragmentation as the current mobile market demands larger screens.
