The iPad Air and the Retina display iPad Mini is here, so the rumor mill is now busy with chatter about the next iPad models. Most people are waiting for Apple to release another incremental update next year for the iPad Air, but itâ€™s already unlikely that it would be called iPad 6. The second-generation iPad Mini was not called the iPad Mini 2 by Apple, and neither did the iPad Air.
Leaving marketing aside, it seems that the latest rumors suggest Cupertino is looking at the possibility of launching a 12.9 inch iPad, which some sources from the production line refer to as the â€œiPad Proâ€. This is not the first time weâ€™re talking about these rumors, as we have previously covered a potential 12.9 inch Maxi iPad back in June, last year and even in July 2011.
Just like then, the latest rumors suggest that Apple could be looking at the iPad Pro as a potential weapon against netbooks. According to some Korean sources, we could see two iPad Pro launches, the iPad Pro with a 2K display could launch in April 2014 and the model sporting a 4K display will reportedly come in October 2014.
What do you think about the reiteration of these old rumors? More than two years have already passed since the first hearsay about a bigger sized iPad - do you think Apple could still launch such a device on the market?
