Besides iPhones, another device is there on which Apple is improving year after year, yes you’re thinking right, the Apple iPad Pro, probably the best tablet series in the world. Apple had launched the last model of iPad Pro in the first half of 2020. So, it is almost one year has passed and as per a recent announcement from Apple, the company is going to launch a newer model of its iPad Pro in the first half of 2021.
Apart from its official announcement, the design of the upcoming iPad Pro 2021 has got leaked earlier via 3D CAD renders. Now, we’ve got some more leaks about the 12.9-inch iPad Pro tablet. So, without wasting any time, let’s get into those leaked photos and 4K videos of the Apple iPad Pro 12.9 2021.
Dimensions and design of Apple iPad Pro 12.9
Regarding the dimension, it is quite similar to the last year’s iPad Pro. Calculating the numbers, this device is 280.6mm tall, 215mm wide, and 6.39mm thick (, or 8.43mm including the photo lens protrudes). So the ultimate measurement stands like this 280.6 x 214.9 x 5.9mm. The bezels look slightly thinner this time, but not that much. This is the only difference we can figure out compared to its predecessor.
Coming to the looks and design, the iPad Pro 2021 is more likely to have a flat design (probably the flattest compared to what Apple used last year) and at a glance, it has quite a bit similarity with the design of 2020’s iPhone 12 series. Coming to its other features, this device will be equipped with a four-speaker system along with a USB-C port. Also, there will be a magnetic Apple Pencil holder on the side and on the back of the cover, there are magnetic connectors for the Magic Keyboard.
Other than this, Apple is expected to add some kind of magnetic connectors at the top and bottom edges next to the speaker holes. If this happens, then it will be a totally new and innovative step from Apple and possibly, Apple will put these connectors on the bottom for this device’s working accessories.
Apple iPad Pro 12.9 specifications
As per the leaks, this device is more likely to offer a 12.9-inch OLED display. The images are showing that the iPad Pro 2021 will feature a dual rear camera setup along with a LiDAR sensor accompanied by an LED flash. So, it seems that Apple is willing to reach new heights in terms of its augmented reality (AR) capabilities in apps and services.
As per the ports and buttons, this Apple device will include the power-key and dual-speaker grille on the top side whereas it will consist of another dual-speaker speaker grille and USB Type-C port at the bottom. On the right side, you’ll find the volume rockers along with a magnetic connector to charge Apple Pencil. Additionally, it is said to house Smart Connector pins for keyboard accessories on the rear panel, apart from its camera setup.
This device is expected to be powered by the 5nm based A14 Bionic chipset (, or it could be totally a new chipset) and the iPad Pro 2021 could be the first in the series to feature a mini-LED panel. That’s all we can speculate for now. We’ll definitely keep you posted further on the basis of the upcoming reports from Apple regarding the device.
As per its availability, the release date is still unclear whereas we can expect to get it released this year at the Worldwide Developer Conference, which is expected to be held in May or June.
