Apple is developing a larger 16-inch iPad that it hopes to release in the fourth quarter of 2023, according to a report today from The Information's Wayne Ma. This would be the largest-ever iPad model, topping the 12.9-inch iPad Pro.
"A 16-inch iPad would likely be geared toward creative professionals such as graphic artists and designers who prefer a larger screen," the report says. No additional details were provided about the prospective device, which would have the same screen size as a 16-inch MacBook Pro and further blur the lines between the iPad and Mac product lines.
Bloomberg's Mark Gurman last year claimed that Apple was exploring the idea of larger iPads that could further "blur the lines" between a tablet and a laptop.
Earlier this year, oft-accurate display industry analyst Ross Young claimed that Apple was also developing a larger 14-inch iPad Pro with a mini-LED display. Young predicted the device could launch in early 2023, but he said he was unsure about exact timing. Taking both of these rumors into account, it is possible that Apple is planning to release both 14-inch and 16-inch iPad Pro models next year.Continue Reading
