iPad Pro concept

iPad Pro coming in 2015

Apple is reportedly planning to start production on its largest ever iPad (the iPad Pro), offering customers a screen size more usually associated with laptop computers than with tablets.

While the iPad Mini and iPad Air currently clock in with screen sizes of 7.9-inches and 9.7-inches diagonally, the new model will have a screen size of 12.9-inches, according to a report from Bloomberg.

The news seems counter-intuitive, as tablet sales have slowed across the industry with only smaller models providing any growth. Apple’s iPad sales were down 9 per cent year on year in the most recent quarter, with only 13.3 million devices sold – compared to the 14.4m predicted by analysts.

Bloomberg suggests however, that the 12.9-inch model could be aimed at businesses, taking on the roles of a traditional computer under the moniker of the ‘iPad Pro’ and slated for release early next year.
