Apple reportedly making a 12.9-inch iPad for production in early 2015
A new report from Bloomberg claims Apple is developing a much larger iPad that could enter production sometime in the first quarter of 2015. The story says the display on this iPad could be as large as 12.9-inches.
Bloomberg's story, which cites unnamed sources, claims Apple has been working with its suppliers to create a new lineup of larger touchscreen devices for at least a year. An iPad with a bigger screen could be targeting the enterprise market which might use the tablet instead of a notebook. Microsoft recently launched the Surface Pro 3, a 12-inch tablet that's is being marketed specifically as a laptop replacement.
The same article claims Apple is still planning to release a new version of the regular 9.7-inch iPad, along with a refresh of the 7.9-inch iPad mini, sometime in the fall of 2014. What do you think about this rumor of a huge new iPad and, if true, what name should Apple give to the big tablet?
