12.9″ iPad Air Case on Sale Ahead of May Launch

Apple’s Upcoming iPad Air to Feature Larger Screen Size

Apple’s tablet product line has gone over a year without an update, so there’s considerable anticipation for the upcoming new iPad. Rumors suggest that Apple will introduce a larger screen size for the iPad Air for the first time, with accessory manufacturers already eager to start selling protective cases for the yet-to-be-released 12.9-inch iPad Air.

12.9-inch iPad Air Case on Sale Ahead of May Launch

According to foreign media reports obtained by CNMO, ESR, a popular overseas manufacturer of mobile phone and tablet accessories, has prematurely listed protective cases for the 12.9-inch iPad Air on Amazon. In the product description, ESR refers to this iPad as the 2024 model. Currently, Apple only sells a single version of the iPad Air with a screen size of 10.9 inches.

Foreign media reports indicate that while the renderings used to display the protective cases look almost identical to those used to promote protective cases for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, and third-party accessories are unrelated to Apple, manufacturers typically receive information about new devices before their release so they can produce and sell accessories like protective cases in advance. Furthermore, ESR has previously launched protective cases before the release of new iPad models by Apple.

According to previous reports, Apple has been developing two new versions of the iPad Air, codenamed J507 and J537. While one model appears very similar to the current iPad Air, the other model will feature a larger 12.9-inch display. The new generation iPad Air is expected to be equipped with the M2 chip, while Apple will use the M3 chip for the new iPad Pro.

Furthermore, a recent report suggests that Apple may use a mini-LED display for the new iPad Air. Mark Gurman leaked that Apple will officially launch the new iPad Air and iPad Pro, along with a redesigned Magic Keyboard and Apple Pencil 3, in the second week of May.
