According to Taiwanese site DigiTimes Appleâ€™s 2014 product lineup includes both, a larger iPhone as well as a larger iPad. The larger iPhone is reportedly scheduled for a May 2014 launch, while the larger iPad, measuring 12.9 inch, will be released in October.
The iPhone is expected to land on China Mobile in the coming weeks, giving Apple access to the carrier’s 759 million customers. After the iPhone 5s and 5c launch on December 18, the next Apple devices to land on the carrier will likely be the iPad Air and the iPad mini, says analyst Chris Whitmore of Deutsche Bank.
What Apple intends to do with its recent acquisition of 3D chip maker PrimeSense is turning out to be quite the guessing game. Earlier guesses pointed to a gesture-based TV, but later reports claimed that it was more about indoor-mapping.
There have been several rumors and speculations which indicate that Apple may launch an iPad with a larger 12.9-inch screen next year.
The Korea Times reports that according to their source at Apple’s display supplier, the company is producing 12.9-inch display for the next generation iPad.
Appleâ€™s October 22nd media event is official, and is going to be held at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. The event invite, in typical Apple fashion, includes a cryptic reference that says “We still have a lot to cover” which doesn’t say much about what the company plans to release, but with the continuos stream of rumors and leaks, it’s next to confirmed that weâ€™ll see new iPads.
