Ever since Apple introduced the first iPad into the market, tech enthusiasts around the world have strived to get their hands on the first batch of each release. And with the iPad Pro, the story is no different with rumours of the device first surfacing in 2013, heating up in 2014 till June, then somewhat slowing down after speculations that the tech giant had shelved the project. However, in August of the same year, there were renewed hopes that the new iPad would be launched in October to boost iPad sales, but this was not to be as the company harnessed its resources push sales of the new iPhone 6 Plus device.

Expected features

Apple is currently expected to unveil a new larger tablet, and the iPad is likely, according to various industry sources to be bigger than its predecessors, with most expecting it to measure between 12.2 and 12.9 inches. On to its design, numerous image leaks suggest that it will look strikingly similar to the iPad Air 2 and 3, and have a slimmer chassis and bezels. Of course with size comes the weight, and the new creation is bound to be heavier than the previous iPad Air tablet. To impress fans the company will have to pull more than a few sleights of hand to come up with a device that weighs roughly the same as previous versions.

On to the features, it is expected to come with two cameras, which is almost standard for iPads, an LED flash; touch ID, and a textured aluminium back for better grip.

Finally, about the release date, sources are a bit hazy on this, but the general view is that it is likely to be released during the second half of the year, with its price set to range between that of the MacBook Air and iPad Air.
