There is a lot of buzz for a bigger iPad as there is a shift seen in screen sizes in all the gadget section. From the standard 4 inches smartphone we now see smartphones as big as 6.4 inches (Sony Xperia Z Ultra) and from 7 inch tablet we see tablets as huge as 12.2 inches (Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro). As per the latest information available it is very unlikely that iPad Pro will be revealed this year and also there are talks that we might see a delay in the launch of next iPad Mini. It seems that from next year we will be seeing three types of Screen sizes for iPad starting from 7.9 inches and then moving to standard 9.7 inches and the maximum would be 12.9 inches.
As per the News Reported in International Business Tech
“Compared with lower-margin iPad mini with Retina display, which shipments has been tepid, higher-margin iPad Air was a hot selling item in 4Q13, which will slow Apple in developing new iPad mini models. We believe Apple plans to launch upgraded iPad Air early this year, and will accelerate development of 12.9 inches iPad. As such, more resources will be allocated to these two products, which will affect the progress of the development of new iPad mini. All told, we think chances of the debut of a new iPad mini in 2H14 are slim. In addition, the 12.9 inches iPad is unlikely to be offered in 2014. For these reasons, we predict the only new iPad product in 2H14 will be the upgraded iPad Air.” Kuo said in his recent note to investors as cited by iDigitalTimes.
