The smartphone and tablets market is usually dominated by rumors. And so much so that before a big name smartphone makes its way to the market, it already is present on the web with its host of rumored specs and features. One such among them recently being the newly rumored iPad Air Plus.
The upcoming iPad Air Plus, however, is still a rumor. Like most other devices before it, the tablet is already making quite the round all around the web with its host of rumored specs and offerings. However, we wait to find out the truth in most of them as we wait for the tablet to arrive.
But while the new Apple tablet, in terms of its specs and rumors, are still in its nascent stages, we have already seen a host of details related to the new tablet. Here are the top 5 among those.
It Should be Big
If there's one point where every other site agrees with the other is in terms of of the size of the new tablet. Apparently, it is set to be a 12.9-inch iPad that's in works at Apple. The Apple rumor mill is working overtime on this and says that Apple is working on a 12.2-inch iPad that is said to be named iPad Pro or iPad Air Plus.
While others have written that Apple will necessarily keep to its processor offering with the recent A8 processor, there is a huge chance that Apple might eventually decide on re-working on that processor and offer something greater that will compliment the bigger screen of the new iPad. An upgraded A9 processor has been heavily rumored.
As reports have suggested, Apple's new tablet could also reportedly have four front-facing speakers, one on each corner of the tablet. This, presumably, could be implemented to give users a better stereo listening experience.
An Upgraded OS?
We are far away from anything solid related to the new iPad. However, there are chances that if the tablet is indeed set for a 2015 release, it might also come around with an upgraded iOS platform running internally. Going by Apple's history, don't be surprised if the new iPad actually comes running iOS 9.
End of the Road for Others?
There's a strong belief that Apple might discontinue the recently launched iPad mini 3 running on an older A7 processor and the iPad mini powered by a dated A5 chip once the new iPad mini is launched. This can actually come true, provided Apple will be looking to free up space to make way for its new tablet.
