Today, we hear/read another set of those iPad Pro rumors which have been circulating over the Web for the past year.
While all of the previous rumors are believable, the 12.9-inch slate still has not appeared nor even been announced by Apple as a real device.
Now, according to a report by Phone Arena , the device could be entering production beginning early next year, though for the display parts alone, the device may have to wait until Q2 2015. In a note by KGI Securities analyst Ming Chi Kuo, the manufacture or production for the rumored iPad Pro has been moved to the second quarter of next year due to production issues in developing the high resolution screen it will boast. If the Apple slate will pack a Retina display, then it would be the first time Retina technology will be used in a much larger device not named MacBook.
If production for the device will take place as last as Q2 next year, then it is possible that the actual launch would take place during the WWDC Apple event by the middle of June. While all of these are mere speculations, previous reports are pointing that the Cupetino manufacturer is trying to make a testing ground and prove whether consumers really love or still prefer Apple devices with larger displays.
In the past couple of years, it was the iPad Air which was selling higher than the iPad mini, and the recently-announced iPhone 6 Plus reportedly performs better than the smaller iPhone 6. Indeed, the market tells us that consumers are gearing toward a bigger and higher resolution screen in order to enjoy multimedia entertainment and gameplay.
Will Apple be able to deliver the iPad Pro to meed this trend?
