Today, the largest iPad measures 12.9 inches diagonally, but this could well change as soon as next year: indeed, Apple would have plans to release a new model, equipped with a much larger screen. . A new revolution in sight at the American manufacturer.
At Apple, we know the 8.3-inch iPad mini, the 10.9-inch iPad Air or the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. With so many screen diagonals available, we can say that the Cupertino company already offers a wide choice to all technophiles who want to have a touch pad under iPadOS.
However, it would seem that for Apple it is not yet enough. The manufacturer is currently working on an even bigger iPadwhich could see the light of day in 2023. If this rumor launched by the site The Information proves to be authentic, it could mark a new turning point in the history of the Apple catalog.
A 16-inch iPad from Apple?
The media is based on a source close to Apple to explain that the company would be working on an iPad with a diagonal of 16 inches. The tablet screen would be, thus, as big as a MacBook Proand larger than that of a MacBook Air.
It is already agreed that the iPad Pro are presented by Apple as very efficient devices to work and that when they have a Bluetooth keyboard, they are able to compete with a computer, provided they agree to use iPadOS instead of macOS. The fact of having started to equip the iPad Air with an M1 then M2 chip, processors that are also found in MacBooks, helps to blur the lines between the two categories of devices, which are very popular with users.
Towards a new very large iPad Pro?
This potential new iPad size would therefore naturally find its place within Apple’s iPad Pro range. It is hard to imagine the manufacturer doing otherwise. Otherwise, the Cupertino company would take the opportunity to do even bigger than Samsungone of its main Android rivals, including the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra tablet measures 14.6 inches diagonally.
However, one point remains to be clarified: the price of such an iPad. With such a large Retina touch screen, the note should be very salty. The device would undoubtedly target professionals, especially those who work in graphics. If the prospect of acquiring such an iPad interests you, you can already start saving.
Also according to sources from The Information, a 16-inch iPad wouldn’t arrive at Apple until the fourth quarter of next year, however.. We can quite imagine a formalization during a conference given in September or October by the Cupertino company. Until then, it’s a safe bet that the rumors will continue to swell and that if this new product were to materialize, we would know more very soon.
