Apple Could Release its 13-inch iPad Pro in 2015, Says Reliable Source
Apple prepares something new for the beginning of 2015. It’s a brand new, large 12.9-inch tablet, called iPad Pro. This large device is supposed to be released this fall, but Apple eventually pushed back its release for the first part of 2015.
As sales of Apple’s iPad devices face a slight decline, some rumors around the internet are talking about the new model of iPad. Reportedly, Bloomberg came up with a confirmation that Apple prepares a new, huge, 12.9-inch iPad Pro. Even though it supposed to be released this year, most recent rumors claim that this huge iPad will be released in early 2015.
Apple has a tradition of releasing the new iPads in October, so a new model at the beginning of the year is a slight change. Especially because the current version of iPad still needs to be updated.
It looks like this large iPad will be purposed for professionals, because its thought that it would be useful for graphic designers and other businessmen, in order to replace laptops. Microsoft has its own large tablet which is supposed to compete with Apple’s iPad Pro, its a 12-inch Surface 3.
Apple recently signed a partnership with IBM, which means that the company show an interest in enterprise market. Instead of direct sales by Apple, IBM will promote Apple devices and recommend them as a part of its consulting. A larger iPad could play a big role in this partnership, though is it expected to be exclusive to the enterprise.
Mark Gurman, from 9to5mac recently revealed an information that the new iPad will have a dual screen mode, something like Windows 8. It will allow users to work with two different apps at the same time, which would be facilitate with multitasking on headsets.
There are no precise information about how it exactly would work, only that the device has been pushed back to 2015. While it’s hard to imagine doing a multitasking on the 7.9-inch iPad Mini, doing it on the larger 12.9-inch iPad Pro makes a lot more sense.
