Customers can currently choose between an 11-inch or 12.9-inch iPad Pro. But soon an even larger model with a 14-inch touchscreen will be added. Expert and insider Ross Young is sure and confirms the existence of such an XXL model (source: Ross Young).
iPad Pro with 14.1-inch display: Apple’s plans for next year
According to him, the largest iPad Pro should have a 14.1-inch screen with mini-LEDs and ProMotion technology, i.e. a display with refresh rates of up to 120 Hz. Ross is not yet so sure about Apple’s scheduling, one holds In principle, however, an idea for the beginning of 2023 is possible. Who knows, maybe at the same time as presenting a larger MacBook Air, as reported recently.
The insider broke the news a few hours before Young „Majin Bu“ the rumor and embellished the report with further details. The new iPad Pro should have an M2 chip and be equipped with a decent amount of memory right from the start. Even the basic version gets 512 GB and 16 GB RAM at no extra charge. The informant also mentions a new 11-inch model with no visible changes in shape and design, and a new 12.9-inch variant with narrower bezels.
Last but not least, the new multitasking of iPadOS 16 is wonderfully suited for an even larger iPad:
iPadOS 16 appears in a new light
Rumors of an even bigger iPad aren’t entirely new, but they make even more sense following the presentation of iPadOS 16. The new operating system with “Stage Manager” will offer a completely new and improved multitasking – ideal for an even larger iPad. In the end, overlapping and grouped windows push the tablet more and more in the direction of the MacBooks. Apple is thus creating even more internal competition. Customers will therefore have to make more decisions: Do I take a classic MacBook without a touchscreen or a large iPad Pro with the same performance but a touchscreen and optional pen, keyboard and trackpad operation.
