ESR, a popular Apple accessory maker, has revealed that the 2021 iPad Pro will have less number of speaker holes as compared to the previous generation iPad Pro.
According to ESR, the number of speaker holes on the 11-inch iPad Pro will be reduced from 13 holes per speaker to 8-9 holes per speaker. Similarly, the number of speaker holes on the bigger 12.9-inch iPad Pro will be reduced from 17 holes per speaker to 11-12 holes per speaker.
Although the speaker grill is getting smaller, the number of speakers on the new iPad Pro models are still expected to be four for stereo sound. The website has also listed some cases for the upcoming AirPods 3. The images confirm that the AirPods’ wireless charging case will be slightly elongated.
The new 12.9 inch iPad Pro is expected to feature a mini-LED display, which could lead it to be a tad thicker. Previous leaks have pointed to an increased thickness of 0.5mm. Last week, Mark Gurman reported that the 2021 iPad Pro will also ship with a thunderbolt port.
