On Monday appeared some pictures of what is possibly the larger iPad Pro. It is a dummy with what seems a second Lightning port or a USB port on the C side of the device, which is a suggestion that the iPad Pro can be recharged in several ways and also will support accessories such as keyboards and mouse. The photos, showing a mysterious port, camera and headphone / speakers are from the Chinese Weibo .
Manufacturers of making cases and other accessories in many cases, a dummy version of Apple’s new devices to already begin the development of a case or accessory, and the iPad Pro that you can see on the pictures is probably one the mockups. Often these mockups or dummies based on schematic drawings that have been leaked, and although they are in many cases quite accurate, it does not automatically mean that they actually match the final product.
The port on the left side of the alleged iPad Pro corresponds to a previously leaked iPad Pro case that had an opening for the insertion of a SIM card, although this port was not shown on the schematic drawings that were published by the Japanese magazine Mac Fan in November 2014. It is possible that these drawings are no longer accurate because it has been some time ago and that Apple is still working on the design of the tablet.
is not entirely clear to what port it goes, because the Lightning port and USB port C are similar in appearance are similar. A recent rumor coming from the business newspaper The Wall Street Journal spoke of the possible addition of a USB 3.0 port on the iPad Pro, allowing users to connect a keyboard or mouse to the iPad Pro. On the other hand, it is more likely that a keyboard and / or mouse via Bluetooth can be connected to the tablet.
Other photos iPad Pro dummy show the camera on the back with a light sensor and a microphone, while the headphone jack is located just next to the speakers. According to various rumors iPad Pro includes speakers and microphones on the top and bottom of the case.
In addition to the larger size of the iPad Pro and the minor changes in the design to add new features , the tablet still seems a lot like the existing iPad Air and iPad Mini. The high resolution screen has suspected a size of between 12.2 and 12.9 inches, an Apple A8X processor, 2GB RAM and Touch ID. Further, it will be possible also an optional stylus released by Apple.
Apple would in September 2015 to begin production of the iPad Pro, so the product in the fall with the new iPad Air and iPad Mini can be launched.
