The iPad Pro cases were shared by Twitter tipster Benjamin Geskin, and are pretty detailed. Apart from sharing the device cases, he also shared certain specifications regarding the upcoming models. The leaked iPad Pro cases show that the smartphone will come with all the hardware features as before. The case comes with openings on the right side bezels for the volume buttons and also a microphone over the buttons. The cut outs hint at four speakers on both the models – two on the top and two on the bottom. The quad speakers will enable stereo sound on the device. On the back is the vertical cutout for the camera. Right next to the camera, in the center, is another microphone. Also Read - iPad Pro, iPad Air 5, iPad 10 features revealed, may debut in 2022

The iPad Pro 10.5-inch is believed to be the larger version of iPad Pro 9.-7-inches but with slimmer bezels and a larger screen-to-body ratio. The width of the device however, stays the same. The side bezels will be 7mm thin. The device retains the home button and Apple is clearly not going the iPhone 8 no-home-button way for the iPad Pro models. The device will be taller and focus more on the display. The iPad Pro models will support Apple Pen.

Whuile details surrounding iPad Pro 10.5-inch have emerged, there are still hardly any leaks surrounding the ipad Pro 12.7-inch model. The device is likely to be just a larger version of the 10.5-inch albeit, with slightly different specifications. In terms of design, both the tablets will be similar to each other.


Apple is expected to announce the iPad Pro models at the World Wide Developers’ Conference (WWDC) scheduled for later this year. Making a slight shift from tradition, Apple will make hardware announcements too this year. Apart from iPad Pro models, Apple is also expected to make an announcement for Apple Mac devices which also need upgrades. Apple is also expected to announce a refreshed MacBook lineup at this year’s WWDC.
