Apple's much-awaited iPad Pro has hit major production issues, according to sources close to Bloomberg. The 12.9-inch large screen sized iPad that was supposed to launch around April time frame has been postponed, a new Bloomberg report says.
It's being reported that Apple has been facing several issues to obtain enough screens to produce the tablet. The report further says that the iPad Pro won't go into production until September. This could mean that we may get to see the 12.9-inch device in September, right around the next-generation iPhone launch.
Back in August 2014, rumors of a large, 12.9-inch iPad Pro emerged on the Internet. Initially, reports claimed the larger iPad at nearly 13-inches and suggested it would arrive in 2015. Since then, there has been plenty of rumors around the large screen sized iPad.
Previously, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has also made accurate predictions about Apple products in the past, has talked about an arrival of the iPad Pro. According to his supply chain sources, Kuo says Apple is planning to add a special oxide screen panel to the larger iPad to achieve "high resolution, quick response, and high color saturation." Kuo also said the new display and other factors pose a difficult challenge for Apple's suppliers.
Over the past 12 months or so, Apple's flagship iPad saw fall in sales. A large iPad could push Apple's strategy in the right direction. As of now, it's unclear when the large iPad will enter production. The recent report from Bloomberg did say that production of the Apple iPad Pro is now scheduled to start around September this year.
