Apple remains one of the secretive companies of this generation. True to its secretive nature, the Cupertino-based giant isn't letting anyone to know about its future lineup.
While rumors have been swirling that Apple might launch updated iPads on October 16, but so far the firm stays tight-lipped on reports about their next-big announcement.
Many reports in the past few months have revealed that Apple is working a large screen tablet device, dubbed as the "iPad Pro". The massive tablet could come with a 12.9-inch screen. In fact, some believe that the forthcoming device may be a hybrid device, with built-in a detachable keyboard, just like the Microsoft Surface Pro 3.
Today, Digitimes reports that there are two prototypes currently being tested; one which integrates both iOS and Mac OS X, while another runs iOS just like other current iPads. That means Apple is testing the so-called "iPad Maxi". Given the unreliable nature of the source, it is rather difficult to agree with this report.
No doubt, Apple could be working on a "2-in-1 combo" of iOS and OS X being integrated. The report claims that the device would use elements of each OS, but it doesn't seem like a hybrid product.
The report also claims the iPad Pro isn't expected to launch until early 2015. For a quick reminder, Apple is holding an event on October 16, where the firm is expected to debut its new iPad lineup.
Meanwhile, GizBot lists out top 5 rumors surrounding the iPad Pro. Take a look into sliders below.
The latest rumour suggests that Apple is working on a new chipset called the A8X, a high-performance version of the A8 used in the current generation iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. This would mean that the iPad Pro would be really fast and response.
Off lately multiple reports suggest that Apple's upcoming iPad Pro will come in two configurations: one with a 2K screen, and the other packing a gigantic 4K resolution.
While the upcoming iPad Air 2 might come with 2GB of RAM, according to latest rumors. Apparently the 12.9-inch iPad Pro could come with even bigger RAM, if rumors have anything to say.
Beyond the large screen and updated processor, Apple is rumored to integrate its TouchID scanner on the iPad Pro. This isn't a significant upgrade, though.
Rumours have also been swirling about a large, 12.9-inch iPad Pro, but so far they remain just speculations. Meanwhile, it is learnt that Apple could launch the iPad Pro sometime in the first half of 2015.
