Urban Armor Gear appears to be preparing a case for the rumored 10.5-inch iPad Pro. A stock system at an Apple Authorized Reseller shared with 9to5Mac shows a UAG Metropolis Folio Case “for iPad 10.5-inch” in three color combinations, with availability listed as June 2017. So we may see a new model iPad Pro introduced at next month’s Apple Worldwide Developer Conference.
A 10.5-inch iPad is expected to target education and business sectors. The beauty of the new size of Apple tablet (if it’s a reality) is that it’s the same size as the 9.7-inch iPad Pro but with a resolution of 2,024-by-1,668 (compared to the current 2,048-by-1,536) because of a smaller bezel. This works well for Apple because it means 9.5-inch iPad Pro accessories like the Smart Keyboard can be used with 10.5-inch version.
