Forget the rumored iPad Pro, what 2014 needs is a better Apple TV

Forget the rumored iPad Pro, what 2014 needs is a better Apple TV

Rumors of a 13-inch iPad Pro were once again making the rounds this week, amped up by talk of a 4K Retina display. I have absolutely no idea whether or not it will ever become a real product, but I’ll happily go on record saying I don’t think 4k resolution makes a lot of sense for a tablet. It’s...

Why a 5-inch iPhone 6 is far more important than a 13-inch iPad Pro

iPhone 6. 2014 has only just begun and it seems like 5-inch iPhone and 13-inch iPad Pro rumors are already getting a lot of attention and generating a lot of discussion. That both sets of rumors tend to focus around larger screen sizes is interesting, but what's really interesting is why a bigger...

So if Apple did make a 13-inch iPad Pro...

While Apple absolutely did not leak one on their website, elaborating on why that wasn't a 13-inch iPad Pro got me thinking again about what could be. Yes, a bigger iPhone 6 still feels far more important, but that doesn't make the mental exercise any less interesting. So, beyond how Apple could...

No, Apple didn't 'leak' a 13-inch iPad Pro with stylus on their website...!

For a while now we've been getting innumerable tips about a supposed 13-inch iPad Pro — with stylus no less — being "leaked" on Apple.com as part of their most recent supplier responsibility report. We've gotten a dozen or so today alone. Here's the thing: Apple doesn't leak unannounced products...

From iWatch to iPad Pro: How Apple could fill the mobile device spectrum

Steve Jobs introduced the original iPad in 2010 by making the case that, in order for a new product category to exist between the smartphone and the laptop it had to be significantly better at certain important things than a smartphone or a laptop. A decade of Tablet PC ruins smote across the market space had made that clear enough. The iPad, case made, went on to achieve phenomenal success. Now, in 2014, the mobile market has grown and various companies are attempting the segment it with even more product categories, including:

While Apple absolutely did not leak one on their website, elaborating on what that image wasn't got me thinking again about what a 13-inch iPad Pro could be. Yes, I still think a bigger iPhone 6 is far more important than a bigger iPad, but that doesn't make the mental exercise any less interesting. Beyond how Apple might scale the iPad display to 13-inches, how could Apple differentiate a larger tablet? What other features could Apple add to make an iPad truly "pro"?

For a while now we've been getting innumerable tips about a supposed 13-inch iPad Pro — with stylus no less — being "leaked" on Apple.com as part of their most recent supplier responsibility report. We've gotten a dozen or so today alone. Here's the thing: Apple doesn't leak unannounced products. The odds of a new iPad appearing in a throwaway graphic — when no event is even in sight — is as close to absolute zero as the temperature in deep space. What you're looking at above is just the lid assembly of a MacBook. Nothing less and certainly nothing more.

Rumors of a 13-inch iPad Pro were once again making the rounds this week, amped up by talk of a 4K Retina display. I have absolutely no idea whether or not it will ever become a real product, but I’ll happily go on record saying I don’t think 4k resolution makes a lot of sense for a tablet. It’s possible someone might put one out, and it’s definitely possible that there is a market for one, but I don’t think it’s possible for such a product to financially matter to a company like Apple in 2014. Personally, I think Apple could get more bang for the buck if they opened a game store for the Apple TV.

Imagining a 13-inch iPad Pro

The minute Apple launches a new device, say the iPad Air or Retina iPad mini, rumors switch immediately to the next. In this case, a 13-inch "iPad Pro". After all, if there can be a MacBook Air and a MacBook Pro, why not an iPad Air and iPad Pro? If Apple can make the iPad more portable, why not more powerful? Now, I'm not so much interested in the rumor — there will always be rumors — but in how Apple could realize such an object. Could iOS be scaled to that screen size, and what it would provide beyond the existing, 9.7-inch iPad, or the 11-inch or 13-inch MacBook Air. Previously I imagined a 4-inch iPhone, which became the iPhone 5, and a 7-inch iPad, which we later saw as the mini. Earlier this year I tried imagining a 5-inch iPhone, and... we'll see what happens with the iPhone 6. So now let's imagine a 13-inch iPad Pro...

Expanding the iPhone and iPad family

Could Apple be planning to expand and round out the iPhone and iPad families by adding higher and/or lower end devices that could appeal to additional segments of the market? While the rumors have been around for as long as the iPhone and iPad themselves, the latest incarnations -- a Retina Display iPad 3 in fall and a cheaper iPhone nano in summer -- make the concept worth looking at again.
