Is Apple Working on a 6-inch iPad/iPod touch?
9to5 Mac has a report today, based on claims made by SuperApple.cz, that says that Apple is currently working on two different iPad versions, one of which they say is 5.7 inches, and one they say is just under 6 inches. According to the website, they have been given this information by two separate sources. The sources also say that the new device will be launched by Apple this Fall. 9to5 Mac says that although this new 6-inch device is being referred to as an iPad, it is possible that it is in fact an iPod touch. As 9to5 Mac points out, Apple CEO Steve Jobs has categorically stated in the past that Apple is not planning to release an iPad with a smaller screen, but nothing has been said about an iPod touch with a larger screen. Like 9to5 Mac says, a slightly bigger iPod touch makes a lot of sense, especially given its popularity as a portable games console. Other reports are saying that Apple is planning a “Fall surprise”, a mysterious new launch. As ever, watch this space!
