New 12.9-inch iPad Pro may get ~8% thicker due to new display

The rumor: One of the new iPad Pro models releasing tomorrow will be 0.5mm thicker, according to MacRumors (71.9% accurate).

  • The new dimensions are said to be 280.65 x 215 x 6.4mm, which means the updated 12.9-inch iPad Pro is getting 7.81% thicker
  • This change in thickness is reportedly due to the new MiniLED display, which is said to be a significant upgrade over current LCD technology

Our take: Considering how large the 12.9-inch iPad Pro already is, this is actually a pretty sizable depth increase. Perhaps this is why there are new Magic Keyboards coming?
