Hit-or-miss rumor site Digitimes is reporting that Apple plans on doubling the size of the battery in the the iPad 3, and moreover, that Apple will release it as soon as next month.
The battery capacity for the high-end version of Apple's new iPad - due to be unveiled in January 2012 - will be increased to 14,000mAH compared to 6,500mAH used currently, according to industry sources.
As always, take these rumors with a Macworld|iWorld expo sized grain of salt. Digitimes' "sources" also mentioned that Apple will debut two separate models of the iPad, one for the high-end market and the other filling in the mid-range segment. While 7-inch iPad persist, keeping the iPad 2 around the way the previous year's iPhone is usually kept around could be another alternative.
As to a January launch, that feels more like a rumor designed to hurt current iPad sales than anything fitting Apple's previous release patterns. Curious how those keep popping up, isn't it?
UPDATE: Jim Dalrymple from The Loop, whose sources are excellent, says there's nothing to see here. No iPad 3 at Macworld or CES, and no Apple Televisions either. [The Loop]
