IT SEEMS there won't be many surprises at Apple's launch event on Monday. Following the iPhone SE mega-leak, more details about the firm's 9.7in iPad Pro have appeared online.
The leak, naturally, comes via 9to5Mac, which claims to have the skinny on pricing details for the incoming iPad. The device, which we're guessing will arrive as the iPad Pro Mini, will be available from $599, according to the report. While this is more expensive than the similarly-sized iPad Air, the base model will reportedly offer 32GB storage, rather than 16GB.
As you'd expect, there will also be higher-priced versions with 128GB of storage and the ability to add LTE connection with popular carriers.
The 9.7in iPad Pro, essentially replacing the iPad Air line, will borrow features from the larger iPad Pro launched in late-2015. The older iPad Air will be offered as a budget version, according to 9to5Mac, alongside the iPad Mini 4.
According to previous rumours, the iPad Pro Mini will borrow many of the features seen on its 12.9in sibling. It will reportedly pack an A9X processor and display technology that supports the Apple Pencil stylus. Apple is also said to be prepping a downsized version of the Smart Cover keyboard attachment.
There's chatter that the 9.7in tablet will feature rear-facing LED flash for improved photos in low light, and additional speaker grilles to better match the audio quality of Apple's 12.9in tablet.
The iPad Pro Mini won't be the star of Apple's 21 March event, though. The firm is also expected to announced to the iPhone SE, a 4in iPhone that will look 'almost identical' to the iPhone 5S but kitted out with specs similar to that of the flagship iPhone 6S.
According to, you guessed it, 9to5Mac, it'll feature the same A9 processor, M9 chip and 12MP rear-facing camera, complete with 4K video capture. µ
