Based on the post, the Apple iPad Plus will feature a 12.9-inch screen with 2K resolution. The slate will be thin at 7mm, and will weigh less than 700 grams. That compares with the 6.1mm thickness of the smaller 9.7-inch Apple iPad Air 2, and the latter's weight of 437 grams. The battery, at 11000mAh, has about a 50% larger capacity than the cell used on the current top-of-the-line Apple tablet. Protective cases will be produced for the iPad Plus.
While you're taking that grain of salt, the Weibo post adds that Apple will be 86'ing the Apple iPad mini 3 and replacing it with the Apple iPad mini 4. It will also keep the Apple iPad mini 2 available as a lower cost alternative. In addition, the company is said to be adding a new 4-inch iPhone to the mix despite denials from the supply chain last month that such a device was being planned. There is no word on when all of this is expected to take place.
