The term “leaks” seems to be fairly inadequate when it comes to rumors about smartphones and tablets during the month of September, but it certainly gives the tech world a huge amount to write about. One that stood out from last week’s launch event is the prospect of an iPad Pro that features a triple camera.
If you’ve ever stood at an event surrounded by people holding up their phones to shoot woeful footage that they will never watch, Apple is potentially adding to that eye-roll of despair at fellow humanity by continuing to bump the specs of the camera included in its largest, most expensive tablets. As everyone knows, nothing is real and nor can it be remembered unless you’re filming it on a giant tablet that completely obscures the view of what’s happening for you and the three people sat behind you. Cameras on tablets are about to get three times more pointless and three times more annoying.
Of course, we can but hope that this is a hoax, and that Apple is not so naive to think that “more is better” at the cost of ergonomics. With the tech giants constantly leaking leaks that are not actually leaks, the time for fake leaks is certainly ripe, especially with manufacturers struggling to find innovative new features now that the market has fully matured, if not saturated.
Would you prefer a professional tablet that has a camera that matches smartphone performance or a tablet that maintains its slim form? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
