Apple iPad sales were down during the crucial 2014 holiday season, even though iPhone and Mac sales were up significantly. Lower than expected iPad sales will raise several key questions.
With Microsoft and Samsung rumoured to unveil their respective gigantic large screen sized slates this year, Apple could be looking to the "iPad Pro" for the rescue.
Is Apple working on a 12-inch tablet with high-end specifications? It seems so given that the first alleged leaked case for the tablet has been leaked online.
A leaked case for the purported iPad Pro has apparently leaked more details about the tablet. According to French blog site nowhereelse.fr, the case comes from a 'reliable source' which has previously given some key details of Apple's device.
What's more, the slate is also expected to have four speakers, and could even feature two charging ports allowing it to remain plugged in when in either portrait of landscape mode.
The report further claims that the iPad Pro could be unveiled sometime between March and April. And talking about the screen size of the tablet, the iPad Pro's display will measure from 12.2 to 12.9-inches diagonally. If rumours are true, Apple iPad Pro would be significantly powerful than the iPad Air 2, the company's latest iPad model.
Analysts revealed that as smartphones become larger and powerful, more buyers are using them for consuming content- making tablets less appealing in nature.
Apple sold 21.42 million iPads during its first fiscal quarter of 2015, which ended Dec. 27, 2014.
