Alleged 12" iPad Pro leaks from Foxconn, thin chassis and quad-speaker system in tow
Apple's giant Pro tablet is fast approaching, it seems, as we are getting more and more rumors about the eventual 12" iPad thrown at us from all directions. The latest leak supposedly comes directly from Foxconn, Apple's assemblyman, and shows a thin, machined aluminum device with the general shape and form you would expect from the renowned iPad line of tablets. The source pegged the slate's thickness at between 6.9-7.5mm, which is a pretty good achievement, and also confirmed the speculated four built-in speakers.
So far, the rumored specs are a 12.2" or a 12.9" ultra high-res display, and a souped-up Apple A8 chipset, but the biggest difference might be in the software department. Remember the rumors that iPad Air 2 will feature a split-screen functionality? Well, this didn't materialize for Apple's mainstream tablet edition last year, so it might have been preserved for the more professionally oriented iPad Pro/Plus, or whatever the team from Cupertino decides to name it in the spring, when it is expected to be announced.
