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.

Long rumoured, the iPad Pro is expected to be something of a response to Samsung’s oversized and business-orientated Samsung Galaxy NotePRO offering.

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.

The iPad Pro has been the subject of numerous leaks and rumours in recent months. A high-powered, sizeable laptop replacement, the tablet looks set to enter the realms of reality this autumn as part of a mass of new Apple announcements

With September and October looking set to be a busy period for the Cupertino-based manufacturer, the iPad Pro is expected to touch down alongside the iPhone 6, iPad Air 2 and a new iPad mini offering, as well as the much mooted Apple iWatch.
