Video Shows Size of 12.2-Inch 'iPad Air Plus' Mockup Next to iPhones, iPads, and MacBook

Last week, Japanese magazine Mac Fan published possible schematics depicting the design of a 12.2-inch "iPad Pro" or "iPad Air Plus". The schematics suggested that the larger-screened tablet would carry dimensions of 305.31mm x 220.8mm x 7mm, or 12 inches x 8.7 inches x 0.28 inches, which is in line with previous rumors about the device. Now, YouTube user Canoopsy (via Nowhereelse.fr) has created a video showing how an iPad Air Plus with those dimensions would measure up to Apple's other devices including the company's current iPads, iPhones and 13-inch MacBook Pro.


Some reports have noted that the larger iPad would carry a 12.9-inch display, however Mac Otakara has suggested a 12.2-inch display for the device in two of its reports. A 12.2-inch iPad Air Plus is of course shown to be much bigger than Apple's current line of iPhones and bigger than the iPad mini 3 and iPad Air 2, as it even approaches the display size of the 13-inch MacBook Pro.

The iPad Air Plus is said to also feature a new A9 processor and dual top and bottom speakers for improved audio. Mac Otakara claims that the iPad Air Plus and a new iPad mini 4 may launch between April and June of 2015. KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo also suggested earlier this month that the iPad Pro may not enter production until the second quarter of 2015 as Apple shifts its production resources towards improving supplies of the iPhone 6 Plus.

since the iPad air 2 is riddled with defects, I'll be waiting a few weeks to see how the dust settles with the iPad +

Riddled with defects? Care to share what those are? I own an Air 2 and have no defects.

Every single non iPad user that uses my iPad 3rd gen, such as friends and family, and a variety of age, gender and types of people... All say the same thing!

"It would be better if it was bigger"

Lots of people online are failing to see a market for a larger iPad but they are not considering so many categories of people...

Multitasking

And that's before taking in to consideration the people that would just love the extra screen real estate to browse the web or the App Store and iTunes! Can you imagine how apps will be optimised to take advantage of the extra space, or the extra features apps could incorporate with extra power! Pro apps would finally take off and tablets would hit whole new markets! This is exactly what the iPad needs!

Also things like watching Netflix and YouTube in bed would go from not as good as being in front of your tv to an absolute up close replacement!

The device won't be heavy at all, probably less so than an iPad 3rd generation and we all used them fine!

It will be smaller and more portable than a Macbook Air and lighter too! It will be a lot easier to hold and use than people would think!

I can not wait for a iPad Plus and will be lining up outside my local Apple Store without any hesitation on price...

Still don't see the appeal of this. It would likely be so large and heavy to the point that it's just better to have a MacBook air 11. Apple would need to give it some serious features other than screen size that differentiate it from the smaller iPads.

This must have a wacom pen, and a functional OS, or bust. Surface Pro 3 has churned a new market. This is clear as day that Apple is going to try to compete. I personally have an ipad mini and its apps stand it apart. But the SP3 really is a game changer to the working market. The consumer market will always be ipad though.
