Apple has launched new iPad model, including two Pro models and an updated iPad 10. Gen.
According to The Information, Apple is developing a new 16-inch iPad. It will also be the biggest iPad yet. The report states that the device will “further blur the line” between the iPads and MacBooks. The new large-screen iPad could be launched in Q4 2023. That would be approximately one year from now.
Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman also supports Apple’s larger iPad. Gurman previously reported Apple was working on a larger iPad. Display Analyst Ross Young said that the company is developing a 14.1-inch iPad. The 14.1-inch iPad will be bigger than the 16-inch version, but it will not be as big as the rumored 16-inch variant.
The blurring of the line between iPads and MacBooks
Apple has long been positioning iPads as more than tablets. They are also replacements for computer systems. This is especially true of the iPad model Pro series. Apple has provided a variety of storage options, accessories support, and processing power to make the iPad Pro series even more powerful.
Tablets are still behind laptops in screen size, which is why Apple’s MacBook series has its own MacBook series. An iPad with a larger screen requires creative work, as we see in official Apple launch videos. The possibility of tablets with a larger screen could change this.
Apple’s iPad Pros are powerful tablets that have been powered by the M-series chipsets. However, many have criticized them for their software bottlenecks in iPadOS. These software bottlenecks reportedly prevent the tablets from reaching their full potential as compared to the MacBooks. It will be interesting for Apple to target this area along with its larger displays.
It’s not yet clear where Apple will put the larger iPads within its rather confusing lineup. Buyers have plenty to choose between the iPad Air, iPad Pro, iPad mini, and vanilla iPads. More information about the new iPads should be available closer to their launch.
