    We have a cool double-story regarding the 12.9-inch iPad Pro for you guys on this fine light news Thursday. The first part is that the device has likely had its reveal date pushed back to September. Bloomberg had this to say,

    For those of us excited by the prospect of a larger iPad, this is sad news. Still, at least they can make sure they work out all the features first.

    Speaking of features, our next part to the story is a new feature leak for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. The Wall Street Journal reports that the iPad Pro will actually come with USB 3.0 Ports. That is the first time an iPad product has come with a non-proprietary data/charging port. Supposedly, Apple is even considering adding ports for connecting keyboards and mice.

    Woa! That's definitely outside the norm! Still, it makes sense if Apple wants this to compete with more traditional laptops. What do you think?

    USB ports? Wow. A total disregard for the walled-garden. ;)

    Will this require a separate version of iOS that handles such things? I mean, they'll need some type of file manager for this, right?

    I think all the smoke means that Apple probably is working on a larger tablet, at least a prototype. This should surprise no one. Apple does a lot of research on a lot of products. The extra smoke probably means they've gotten pretty serious about a larger tablet.

    However, the actual features and when such a tablet will hit the market are only rumors. Something that would be barely news, if it were any company but Apple.

    But I do hope. A larger tablet with an excellent pen option appeals to the doodler in me. It also fits well with how I've been using my iPad since the iPhone 6 Plus; mostly at home instead of taking it with me.
