For a few months now it has been rumored that Apple is working on a significantly larger tablet. We didn’t hear anything about it at the company’s October event for new iPads, probably because prior to the event it was reported that this tablet has been pushed into 2015. A new report coming out of Japan suggests that this iPad Air Plus is going to hit the market by mid-2015.
Additional details about the iPad Air Plus are offered by this report as well. It is expected to have a 12.2-inch display with dimensions of 305.31 x 220.9 x 7 millimeters. To put it in perspective, the recently released iPad Air 2 comes in at 240 x 169 x 6.1 millimeters with its 9.7-inch display.
According to the report by Macotakara the iPad Air Plus is going to be powered by the company’s A9 processor, a new chip that we expected to see in next year’s iPhones and iPads as well. It also mentions that the tablet is going to have four speakers built-in on each edge of the tablet’s case, providing users with stereo sound no matter which way the device is rotated.
Obviously the rumors are unsubstantiated because Apple is certainly isn’t confirming anything. The company has dropped no hints about its plans to build a larger tablet so the only thing we can do at this point in time is wait and see, hopefully we’ll get to hear more if this product really is in the pipeline.
