A known leaker has released photos of a supposed mockup of the upcoming 10.5-inch iPad Pro online giving fans of tablets something concrete to look forward to. Apple has yet to unveil the tablet but Benjamin Geskin claims he got hold of one allowing him to showcase what the actual iPad Pro looks like.
Geskin is also known as a render artist who has had some success in guessing what devices would look like before they came out. This time, however, Geskin did not create any renders, he was supposedly given the same iPad Pro mockup provided by Apple to companies making cases for the tablet.
In his tweet, Geskin claimed that the model in the image is "100% confirmed" the one received by case manufacturers from the factory. He also said that the 10.5-inch iPad Pro is already in mass production.
GSMArena also reported that Geskin did create his own renders based on the mockup he received. Geskin is also the one responsible for leaking the case covers for the iPad Pro yesterday. The leak actually showed the cases for the 10.5-inch iPad Pro and the 12.9-inch version. The cases sported a wooden design. The cases indicated that the new iPads will have four speakers, a lightning port, and a vertical camera on the upper right corner. The latter feature is similar to what has been rumored with the iPhone 8.
Per BGR, the new iPad Pro will be similar to previous versions of the iPad tablet. Based on the leaked images, the new 10.5-inch iPad Pro will have the same design with one glaring change - slimmer bezels. Apple is apparently going with the trend and lessening the bezels of the upcoming iPad Pro. The tech giant is also rumored to be doing the same with the anniversary iPhone. However, rumors regarding the iPhone 8's display have been contradictory. A fairly recent one courtesy of JPMorgan says that the iPhone 8 has been forced to ditch the idea of a bezel-less design. Instead, the next Apple flagship smartphone will come with slim bezels at the top and bottom of the device.
