A week ago, we were sharing with you a new rumor, according to which, two different models of the 12.9-inch â€˜iPad Proâ€™ could be launched in 2014. Now, yet another rumor is surfacing the web, this time from DigiTimes, saying that a larger-sized iPad could be launched in the month of October, 2014.
Apple is rumored to release a 12.9-inch tablet in October 2014, targeting North America's educational market, according to sources from the upstream supply chain. 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, the sources noted.
Just like the previous report, this new one from DigiTimes also suggests that the educational market could be targeted with a bigger iPad. The new information that the report brings is related to the manufacturer, as Quanta Computer is expected to produce the new iPads. The larger-sized iPad could adopt either a 12.9- or a 13.3-inch size. According to the same publication, Samsung Electronics is also planning to release 12- to 13-inch tablets. Also, Apple is rumored to be planning a larger sized iPhone for May 2014, using a 20nm processor manufactured by Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC).
