iPad prediction: Larger screen in 2014

Next year's iPad will feature a larger screen than today's iPads, according to reports in the Times of India on Dec.19, following earlier reports on Yahoo, International Business Times, TechRadar and others. Many of the articles predict that an iPad to be released in 2014, nicknamed iPad Pro by the media, will feature a 12.9 inch screen. This is considerably larger than the 9.7 inch screen of today's iPad Air and iPad 2; in fact it's about the size of the Windows tablets currently available.

Sources: The reports cite unnamed sources within China. These information appears to originate from people in China who may have a real view into Foxconn and Quanta, Apple's manufacturing partners. When Apple or any other company works on dramatically different products, they need to plan those with their manufacturing partners and inform various individuals of the design, and secrets become more difficult to keep as more people are brought into the loop.

The fact that Windows tablets and even the latest Kindle offer higher resolution than Apple's flagship iPad Air is an indication that Apple will likely pursue hardware options with more pixels. The Wall Street Journal reported as far back as July, 2013, that Apple was testing larger screens for both iPhone and iPad, noting that they might not become actual products.

Timing: Though Apple has recently released the newest iPad in the fall so that the announcement fuels holiday purchases, and others are predicting a spring, 2014, release for the larger iPad.
