Apple To Release 12.9-Inch iPad In October 2014; Will be manufactured by Quanta Computer [Rumor]

  • December 23, 2013

According to a new report from Digitimes, Apple is set to release their rumored 12.9-inch iPad tablet in October 2014,  according to sources from the upstream supply chain. The report alleged that Apple’s new iPad – widely referred to as the iPad Pro, will be targeting North America’s educational market and enterprise.

“Apple’s large-size tablet will be manufactured by Quanta Computer, and was originally expected to adopt either 12.9- or 13.3-inch panels, with recent rumors indicating that 12.9-inch has a better chance to be picked,” Aaron Lee and  Joseph Tsai report for Digitimes.

“In addition to tablets, Apple is also rumored to be planning a larger size iPhone for May 2014, using a 20nm processor manufactured by Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC),” the report said.

Interestingly, the report speculates that the iPad Pro is being considered as a substitute of the 11-inch MacBook Air. This suggests that Apple will have to come up with something special in terms of processing power of the new tablet while maintaining excellent battery life people come to expect from the iPad.
