Apple Might Release Two 12.9-Inch iPads Next Year

by Reads (2,100)

Apple and Foxconn have developed a number of prototypes of 12.9-inch iPad models, and will release two tablets in this size next year, if an unconfirmed report is correct.

A Larger iPad -- Artists ConceptFoxconn is the company that assembles the iPad Air for Apple, and these two companies have testing five possible versions, according to a report coming out of Asia. Two of these will supposedly be released next year.

The first of these is expected in the spring, and will have what is described as a 2K screen. The term “”2K” just means that a display has horizontal 2000 pixels, and the current iPad Air already meets that qualification. This could mean that the first 12.9-inch tablet from Apple will have a 2048 x 1536 (QXGA) screen, the same as the company’s other Retina displays.

The second model is supposedly coming out next fall, and will have a 4K screen — one with 4000 horizontal pixels. This might mean that Apple next resolution is going to be double its current one: 4096 x 3072.

These larger models are expected to appeal to business users, who generally prefer devices with bigger screens.
