Respected KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims there’s an “over 70 percent” chance that Apple will debut a 10.5” iPad Pro during its WWDC conference next month, AppleInsider reports. Kuo said suppliers are ramping up to begin mass production in early June for the new tablet, which sill be a similar size to the current 9.7” iPad Pro but feature a larger display because of narrower bezels.
Other analysts claimed the 10.5” device would launch this spring, but that window is rapidly closing. The analyst also shared some new details about the rumored Siri-enabled home speaker, which he thinks has a 50 percent chance of debuting at WWDC as well.
Kuo thinks the device will feature some physical controls in addition to being voice activated, but whether those controls will be basic buttons or a touch screen is still unclear. Other reports have also predicted the device will feature some form of manual controls.
