This could be Apple's answer to the Surface Pro 3

The Surface Pro 3 is probably one of the best devices Microsoft has ever created. With its thin profile and powerful internals, it is a direct competitor to Apple's Macbook Air. Microsoft has even created ads that compare the two with the win going to the Surface Pro 3. But, that could all change as new details of Apple's rumored 12-inch iPad have emerged.

According to Macotakara, who has obtained an early copy of the November edition of Mac Fan magazine, states that the issue will have a leaked blueprint of Apple's 12" iPad that is expected to release in 2015. The iPad Air Plus, as it has been dubbed, will have a measurement of 12.02 x 8.69 x .27 in. But, perhaps the most interesting feature of the new 'iPad Air Plus' will be its four speakers. This would position a speaker at each corner of the device, allowing for superb sound regardless of orientation. The site also reports that this new tablet will be the first to utilize a new A9 processor and should see a release between April - June of 2015.

While the 'iPad Air Plus' does bring touch capability and a larger size, it still would be at a disadvantage compared to the Surface Pro 3 that runs a full-fledged OS.
