The new tablet from Apple will be known as the iPad Air Plus and according to the latest developments, the design of the Air Plus is expected to feature dual top and bottom speakers that will ensure the stereo sound delivered to users is extremely enhanced. This gadget is expected to follow suit with the design structure of the iPad Air 2, with a few adjustments in the size of the tablet. In general, the design of the latest tablet from Apple will follow the same lines as the iPad Air 2 and the iPad Mini 3.
Reports coming from a reliable source inside the company suggest that the new tablet will come with a massive size of 12.2 inches and it will feature little to zero changes when it comes to the looks and appearance sported by the iPad Air 2. The iPad Air Plus is rumored to have fixed measurements of 305 mm by 221 mm by 7 mm.
Despite the above rumor largely circulating the internet, there are other sources which record otherwise, citing the size of the display screen of the new Air Plus to be in the regions of 12.9 inches. However, these reports have been quashed by more reliable sources and as it stands, the latest tablet from Apple will have a 12.2 inch display screen.
Hardware and Software
