Production of Apple's larger iPad has reportedly beed delayed as suppliers focus on iPhone 6, according to a recent report from the Wall Street Journal. The publication cites sources familiar with Apple's plans who said the following:
"The top priority for the supply chain is to meet the overwhelming demand for the larger screen iPhones," the source said.The output of the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus remains unsatisfactory. It would be challenging for display makers to split resources and spend a few months to ramp up production for a new larger screen iPad now."
WSJ says that Foxconn is having trouble meeting iPhone 6 demand, and since Foxconn is also responsible for building important parts in the iPad, this has postponed the launch of the much-rumored iPad Pro.
If Apple's rumored iPad does indeed get launched, the it will be the first time when the company will introduce a bigger size than the current 9.7-inch version.
Previous rumors suggested that an an early 2015 launch is on the cards for the device, but it could be pushed back into the middle of next year if mass production doesn't start this year.
Apple will livestream the launch event of the new iPads, so maybe that's when we'll hear more details about the iPad Pro.
