Rumor: iPad Large Screen 12.9 Inch

We’re now just a few of days away from Apple’s unveil of the new iPad Air 2 — and possibly the Retina iPad Mini 2, too — and so it’s time to study through all of the rumors and leaks to work out what Apple has in store. After years in which the tablet is released only with screens smaller than 10 inches, Apple may finally introduce extra-large iPad next year.  Well, is a 12.9 inch iPad really on the way? According to Bloomberg, Apple is going to release this updated iPad in early 2015.
Given the size of 12.9 inch iPad is large enough, Apple ensures that this is a very appropriate substitute for a hybrid laptop aimed for  creative and  professionals, as has been done with the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 12 inch.
According to the sources, in recent years, Apple has been working with the supplier, so that in the first quarter of next year production of 12.9-inch iPad could soon begin. It is expected that in the autumn the iPad could be launched into the market.

Although there is a huge gap in the line of Apple products such as iPhone, iPad and Mac, but Apple does not show signs will combine these three product lines, due to the efforts led to Apple have to work very hard to make it happen.
It is estimated that 12.9 inch iPad is too big for most users, but the iPad is an exact replacement for your MacBook.

Last year, Apple redesigned the iPad 4 to have thinner bezels and be much lighter, and called it the iPad Air. This year, it seems Apple is doing exactly the same thing — but if we’re lucky, we may also get a brand new iPad Air Pro with a 12.9-inch screen. If Apple keeps the same 4:3 aspect ratio, a 12.9-inch iPad Air will have 76% more screen area than the current 9.7-inch model. Throughout with a larger screen, the 12.9-inch iPad Air will also come with a higher-resolution display — probably as high as 3840×2160 (4K), or whatever resolution Apple deigns to classify as Retina HD.

The new iPad Air will possibly be powered by the A8X — an upgraded version of the A8 SoC which debuted in the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. The latest leaks said the new iPad Air, unlike the new iPhones, will finally step up to 2GB of RAM.

It is said that prototype designs of the new iPad Air also show redesigned, hidden volume buttons — but otherwise, the new iPad Air looks much like the old one, just thinner and lighter.
The new iPad Air will maybe offer the same storage options as the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus (16GB, 64GB, and 128GB). The price will definitely depend on screen size: If Apple goes ahead with a 12.9-inch iPad Air, rest assured that it will be really expensive.

Would 12.9 iPad Air be a commercial success? I believe that larger-screen smartphones will beat out tablets in the long term.
