In the last few days the number of rumours concerning the iPhone 6 has not stopped growing, but this does not mean that the new Apple mobile device, which will almost certainly be presented on Tuesday 9th September, is the only new thing that Cupertino has in store for us . We also often hear rumours or leaks about other products such as iWatch, which is expected very soon, and of course about the new generation of iPad .
The new iPad is just one of the rumours we are hearing about today from Bloomberg , one of the world’s leading economic and business news media , so this information must be taken into account. The rumour is that an iPad will be released soon, and that, apart from a few new features, it will have a screen size of 12.9 inches.
According to Bloomberg, Apple suppliers are already preparing for the mass production of a record number of iPads , which will also have a new size of 12.9 inches , which would be a considerable increase in size compared to the current generation of iPads available on the market, which reaches 9.7 inches on the iPad Air.
In recent months other prestigious media also pointed out that the new iPad would be slightly smaller than 13 inches . This was stated by The Wall Street Journal about a year ago, or by the Korea Times, which informed its readers of a 12.9-inch iPad for a different date than the beginning of 2015.
Some speculate that this increase in the size of the iPad is due to a new plan by Apple, which includes IBM in the framework of its recent collaboration agreement, to increase the sale of its tablets and, above all, that these be used in companies of all types as a work tool . Be that as it may, in a few months we will know what plans Apple has, and the veracity of this information coming from a medium as prestigious as Bloomberg.
