For the past weeks, rumors about the iPad Pro or iPad Air Plus have died out a bit, but as we get ready to enter 2015, they’ll probably reemerge in full strength. A potential blueprint of the 12 inch iPad Air Plus was spotted on the web last week and based on that we get a mockup video showing how big the new slate will be in comparison with other iDevices.
The newcomer is said to be 7 mm in thickness and measure 305.31 mm in length, as well as 220.8 mm in width. That’s big enough for a 12.2 inch display and it could also host the usual Home button with the Touch ID fingerprint scanner. The video shows us the newcomer, in a render form, with pretty big bezels, if you ask me. It seems to sit comfortably in the user’s hand and in two hands.
It’s about 5 times bigger than the iPhone and about 1/3 bigger than the iPad Air, plus it’s not very far from the smallest MacBook, when it comes to body size versus the screen panel of that device. Expectations are that Apple will promote this as a productivity device and bundle it with a keyboard. The question is if it will blend Mac OS and iOS, as rumored…
