2019 iPad Pro Design Leaks, Here’s What It Looks Like
There have been rumors of a 2019 iPad Pro refresh for some weeks now, and Sonny Dickson says that he’s been given a photo of a dummy unit.
The image he shared was apparently provided by someone who has been “reliable about previous iPad hardware” which leaves us with little reason to think that anything is amiss here.
The device fits in with previous claims that the new iPad Pro will have three cameras similar to the new iPhone 11 Pro. This dummy model doesn’t appear to have anything covering that camera bump, but we’d expect that to be very different when actual working iPad Pros are built.
As Dickson notes, while people might not like it when others use iPads as cameras, there’s something to be said for being able to shoot and then edit video on a single device.
The hardware is extremely similar to what is featured on the iPhone 11 Pro, and is expected to offer the same benefits to creative video professionals. The design is a nod to Apple’s intent to offer pro users of the iPad a device on which they can comfortably shoot and edit 4K quality video all from one device, offering the freedom to take their setups on the go without a bundle of extra hardware attached to a Mac.
Apple is expected to hold another media event in October, with this new iPad Pro part of the lineup. A new 16-inch MacBook Pro is also expected to be announced, too.
