In addition to updates for the known iPad models expected for some time that Apple will introduce this year a larger iPad Pro. New images show an iPad, which has a USB Type-C port may possess.

Whether it is a functional iPad, a prototype or just a dummy of a hull manufacturer in the images that were shared on the micro-blogging service Sina Weibo (via MacRumors) is unclear.

Also unclear is the type of the port, which can be seen in the pictures on the left side of the iPad. It is possible that this is a second Lightning port. Due to similarities between Lightning and USB Type-C can not be excluded that this could also be the new USB connection, the Apple technology ever seen in the new MacBook.

These details coincide with those of a cover view in recent weeks. Obviously, we know the origin of the images that could also prove false or made with a 3D software. According to rumors, the alleged iPad Pro should integrate a processor A8X or A9, a high-resolution display and have also included a stylus. The announcement could take place in the fall, along with the next-gen iPad.


Earlier reports from the Wall Street Journal suggested that Apple could potentially offer a USB port for easier connection of external peripherals on the iPad Pro.

Some of you remember now perhaps a prototype of the original iPad, which was offered in May 2012 on eBay, and two 30-pin connectors possessed.

The pictures of the alleged new iPad Pro show further openings next to the headphone jack. This is possibly due to cut-outs for the second speaker is to enable stereo audio. This, too, was already part of previous rumors.

The presentation of the iPad Pro is currently expected in the coming autumn.As mentioned above, the iPad Pro should be equipped with a 12.2 or 12.9-inch display, a A8X SoC Touch ID and 2 GB of RAM.
