After larger iPad rumors came larger iPhone rumors, and now we’re going full circle with more hear-say and speculation regarding a future possible larger-than-9.7-inch iPad. While we previously heard of a possible 11.4-inch Apple slate, today’s rumor is talking about an even larger form factor, at 12.9-inches.
Even if such a prototype exists, Apple has been known to experiment with multiple form factors in-house, most of which remain in the prototype/project category/stage for good. This rumor claims that the 12.9-inch iPad is already in testing at the Foxconn factory, which, even if it were true, it could mean several other things, aside from Apple experimenting: we could see a touch-enabled MacBook, a completely new product, or… nothing.
Either way, the report claims that Spring of 2014 is when Apple might unveil this larger slate. We’ll keep you posted as soon as we find out more.
