iPad Pro pictures leak with larger form factor

The first iPad Pro pictures have leaked, with a dummy model of Apple’s upcoming oversized tablet appearing online.

Hitting the web courtesy of Chinese social network Weibo, a spy shot of an aluminium backplate said to be from the as yet unconfirmed iPad has surfaced.

Although offering no details on the iPad Pro’s specs, the leaked image has hinted that the iPad Air and iPad mini 2 sibling will line up at somewhere between 12-inches and 13-inches in size.

While we suggest the leaked image be taken somewhat lightly, given its less than official roots, the iPad Pro dummy model have appeared alongside a shot of a claimed iPhone 6 dummy unit.

With no working components, just a shell, dummy models are often sent to case and accessory makers, allowing third-party manufacturers to prep peripherals for leading gadgets in time for launch.
