As the days go by, new facts and rumours continue to emerge about the iPad Pro, the 12-inch screen tablet Apple would be working on. Just this morning we were saying that Cupertino’s would have delayed its mass production until next September due to supply problems, but now new data is coming in about the possibility that the iPad Pro will have a USB 3.0 port and fast charging technology .
Regarding this possible delay in the production of the iPad Pro, The Wall Street Journal has published a new report stating that Apple has advised its suppliers to start mass production of the 12-inch tablet during the second half of 2015 . So it seems that the rumors are confirmed and we may have to wait until the end of the year to see the iPad Pro.
It appears that Apple intended to produce the iPad Pro during the first half of 2015, but poor display performance would have caused a significant delay. However, we cannot rule out the possibility that Cupertino’s will surprise us next Monday on the Keynote with the iPad Pro.
USB 3.0 port and fast charging on iPad Pro?
In this report published by The Wall Street Journal it also states that Apple is considering including a USB 3.0 port in the future iPad Pro in order to provide a much faster data transfer rate, as well as being able to use it to connect accessories such as a keyboard or mouse. But that wouldn’t be the only fast thing you’d have, as they say the iPad Pro could have fast-charging technology.
However, as good as the idea of the iPad Pro having a USB 3.0 port sounds, it’s hard to believe that Apple will integrate this connector into its next tablet . Especially considering that including this USB 3.0 port would make the iPad Pro a fairly thick device compared to its smaller brothers.
On the other hand, regarding the inclusion of a fast charging technology would be very interesting , since it would allow the user to charge the iPad Pro in much less time. Also, it would be a good thing, since the most logical thing is that the tablet has a high-capacity battery.
Other features of the rumored iPad Pro
As The Wall Street Journal points out, it’s still not clear whether the iPad Pro will actually have this USB 3.0 port or the fast charging technology, but there’s no doubt that these would be two very interesting features for the tablet. On the other hand, previous rumours indicate that the iPad Pro will have four speakers , one in each corner, in fact a supposed case with slots in the corners where they would be located has already been leaked.
In any case, it seems that we have a few months left to learn about the final features of the iPad Pro , so for the time being we’ll have to settle for the rumours and leaks that are coming out of the net.
