With all the talk of the iPhone 6, and the iWatch – Apple’s first foray into wearable tech, we’d almost forgotten about the long-rumoured giant iPad, namely the iPad Pro.
It’s been pretty quiet on the iPad Pro front of late, but a new rumour from out east suggests the colossal tablet might arrive later this year.
That’s the story over on ubergizmo.com, relaying word from Taiwan’s Economic Daily News.
The iPad Pro has been rumoured on and off for a while now, though recent reports suggested the idea might’ve been sidelined until early next year. It’s not like Apple doesn’t have enough to contend with already.
But nope, according to EDN, the iPad Pro will launch this year, alongside the inevitable iPad Air and iPad mini refreshes.
Details are scarce, but the iPad Pro is tipped to come with a massive 12.9in display, more than 3in larger than the 9.7in iPad Air.
Again, we’re told that the iPad Pro will be aimed primarily at the enterprise and educational markets, which makes sense to us. At 12.9in, it won’t exactly be portable.
If 2012 and 2013 are anything to go by, the new iPhone will arrive in September, with the iPads following in October.
