Alleged iPad Pro schematics leak as cases compared to iPad Air 2 (video)

Screen Shot 2015-05-01 at 8.21.31 AM

A new video has been published that compares the rumored iPad Pro shape/size to the current generation iPad. It’s obviously much larger than the iPad Air 2. This rumored tablet is said to feature a 12.3 to 12.9 inch display and crafted from the same 7000 series aluminum used on Apple Watch Sport. Check out the video below for a size comparison between the cases and iPad Air 2…

Recently images surfaced of similar cases, but it’s unclear if the shape/size here actually represents something Apple is working on. Most of these cases are put together using renders and mockups, but in some cases have been fairly accurate when compared to the final product. Either way, the video below uploaded by Unbox Therapy is very helpful in comparing the size differences.

Purported iPad Pro dummies surfaced a while back as well, but these are likely being created from the same rumored specifications that have been floating around lately. In the video, the case measures 8.75 inches in width, height is exactly 12 inches, and 12.5 inches diagonally. Check out the video below for a closer look at the alleged iPad Pro case:

Purported 12-inch ‘iPad Pro’ cases show stereo speakers, iPhone rumored to use same 7000 Series aluminum as Apple Watch Sport

Sonny Dickson has today posted images of an iPad Pro case that reiterates previous manufacturing renders and reports. Like a render seen in January, the case has holes for stereo speakers situated on top and bottom of the device.

The ‘iPad Pro’ has been widely reported to be in development for some time, featuring a larger 12.3 – 12.9 inch display. It is unknown if the new case images offer any new information — they could have been conjured up based on the previously leaked renders. Chinese case manufacturers have offered mixed indications of future Apple product plans. The iPhone 6 design was widely leaked through cases appearing online, but other instances have not been as fruitful.

Today, there has also been a rumor around the next iPhone’s materials …

According to Economic Daily News, which has a sketchy history regarding Apple rumors, the next iPhone will use the same aluminum material, ‘7000 Series’, as the Apple Watch Sport.

Apple describes the material on the Apple Watch Sport microsite:

“For Apple Watch, we created a new alloy of 7000 Series aluminum that’s 60 percent stronger than standard alloys. Yet it’s very light.”

Current iPhones use aluminum extensively, but the difference for the ‘iPhone 6s‘, according to the report, is that Apple would use a higher-quality version of the same metal. The 7000 Series aluminum is up to 60% stronger than the normal material according to Apple. It may make the CNC milling process more complicated, but Apple has shown it is possible through the existence of the Apple Watch Sport.
