According to a recent report by Bloomberg, Apple is planning to launch a large screen iPad in early 2015. Previous rumours speculated 2014 as the launch year for the iPad Pro that’ll have a screen size of 12.9-inch, but Bloomberg report suggests 2015 as the new launch year.
Apple Inc. (AAPL)’s suppliers are preparing to manufacture the company’s largest-ever iPad, with production scheduled to commence by the first quarter of next year, according to people with knowledge of the matter.
The new iPad will have a screen measuring 12.9 inches diagonally, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the details aren’t public. Apple currently produces iPads with 9.7-inch and 7.9-inch displays. The Cupertino, California-based company has been working with suppliers for at least a year to develop a new range of larger touch-screen devices, said the people.
The 12.9-inch iPad is expected to have a high pixel density with ultra high-definition display quality. Besides being similar to iPad Air and iPad mini in design, it will also have an ultra-thin chassis and narrow side bezels.
