    Apple has become very predictable lately when it comes to product announcements. We know that iPhones are announced in September, iPads in October, and WWDC is all about software. This gives us enough of a clue as to what to expect for Apple's event on September 9, even though it seems that might change. Trusted sources claim that Apple is planning to announce the iPad Pro on September 9, along with the iPad mini 4, the new iPhones, and hey, why not a new Apple TV while Cupertino is at it. Apple has gone as far as to change its regular venue for this event, and instead use the much larger ...

    It's funny but we've been covering iPad Pro rumors since 2013. At this point we don't know what's taken Apple so long to launch this product, but rumors have gotten much stronger these last couple of months. Sources claim that we might see this product later this year, and today we find proof. Analyst firm Appsee claims that it has found concrete evidence to prove that the iPad Pro does exit. The company's data logs have found iPad model 6.8 already testing applications. You could say this could be just any iPad, but the fact that it's testing apps at a resolution of 2048 x 2732 is a clear ...

    It's nearly time for Apple to introduce its latest hardware, and if the rumors about a possible September 9 event are to be believed, Apple could be prepping one pretty big set of announcements, bringing us not just its new iPhones but also new iPad hardware. But just which iPads might show up? Last month we checked out a rumor claiming that Apple wasn't quite ready to give us an iPad Air 3, and that instead would be coming out with a new iPad mini and introducing the jumbo-sized iPad Pro. Well, we're still not sure if the time is finally right for the fabled iPad Pro to make its debut, ...

    These next several weeks are going to be big ones for new smartphone launches. Samsung Unpacked is next Thursday, and then we've just got a couple weeks to go before IFA rolls around and we look forward to the next wave of hardware announcements. After that, we've been expecting Apple to show off its latest iPhone models sometime in September, but so far we haven't been able to narrow that window down by much. Apple's yet to make anything official, but a fresh rumor out this afternoon attempts to give us an early heads-up before Apple sends out its own invites, claiming that this year's ...

    When Apple introduces its next wave of iPad tablets, what devices will be among them? A new iPad Air and mini, sure, but will that be it? What about the possibility of finally seeing one of those long-rumored bigger iPads launch – like the 12.9-inch device we've been calling the iPad Pro? Some sources are adamant about the tablet's presence in Apple's fall lineup, but then again, these plus-sized iPad rumors have been around for years, and so far nothing's come of them; why should this year be different? As we wait to learn if there's really a new, larger iPad in our future, a new report ...

    The future of Apple's iPad lineup has been a topic of much debate over the last few weeks. While some predict that Apple is focusing its resources on an iPad Pro and holding updates to the iPad Air lineup for another year, we also hear that Apple is planning a major refresh to its iPad mini. Whatever the case may be, Apple's quarter results confirm that the company is in need of something hot, and today we learn more about its plans. Japanese sources are now claiming that the iPad mini 4 that we've seen in rumors will not only match the iPad Air 2 in design, but also in specifications. ...

    As the tablet market continues on decline, OEMs are clearly desperate in trying to find ways to lift it up again. We've spent more than a year covering the possibility of a larger iPad Pro as Cupertino's solution to this problem. New rumors point to part of the company's action plan, and it seems to be quite drastic. New reports claim that Apple has decided to delay the iPad Air 3 refresh in order to focus on iPad Pro production, in addition to the rumored iPad mini 4 refresh. Sadly the source doesn't specify if Apple will simply retain the iPad Air 2 as the 9.7-inch variant that consumers ...

    We've spent a great deal of 2015 and even 2014 covering rumors of a possible iPad Pro or iPad Plus in the works. For a minute there we thought the "New Macbook" killed the buzz, but that's far from reality. With the proximity of Windows 10 competition and a declining tablet market, Apple is in desperate need to reinvent its approach, and today we learn more. Digitimes is famous for getting most of its reports right, and this time we hear that Foxconn is preparing to start supplying components for this 12.9-inch tablet in late September, with a possible launch time in November. The source ...

    We just told you about a new rumor concerning Apple's plans for a 12.9-inch iPad “Pro,” looking at a recent trademark application and explaining why it wasn't quite the evidence for an OS-X-powered iPad as some were making it out to be. But that doesn't mean that work on a larger iPad isn't happening, and the idea that Apple could still release this long-rumored tablet has yet to fade. This evening, we get the latest word about how this jumbo-sized iPad could be coming together, as we hear some supply chain rumors about the companies Apple's chosen to build the tablet's display. ...

    Right now, Apple's managing two markedly different platforms, as its mobile devices are powered by iOS (which we're including watchOS under), and its proper computers powered by OS X. But for a while now we've been wondering if Apple might be ready to start blurring those boundaries, and if the rumored jumbo-sized 12.9-inch iPad could run some variant of OS X – not unlike how we see Windows tablets running the same operating system as Windows PCs. Now there's a new trademark filing that's getting attention for possibly providing some actual evidence that OS X could land on a future iPad ...

    The iPad Pro, or whatever its name will be, is a device that has been rumored for the longest time. While there's still nothing official about it, the reports are pouring in, especially after the first beta of iOS 9 -- check out our hands-on here -- and the last time we heard the large slate mentioned was regarding the keyboard included with the latest version of Apple's mobile OS. On that exact vein, as people continue to dissect iOS 9 beta, the code reveals more evidence that the iPad Pro might exist in the near future. The image reveals screen resolutions listed inside the code of iOS ...

    iOS 9 is far more than the conservative update we were expecting, and that's even more evident with the iPad. Apple's new mobile operating system allows you to take much broader advantage of the screen real estate, something which users have begged for in previous updates. We didn't get to see an iPad Pro at this event though, a product where all this functionality would make much more sense, but today we get more evidence of its existence. Famous iOS developer Steven Troughton-Smith has just published one of his new discoveries. It seems that the iPad's virtual keyboard is capable of ...

    Even if Apple won't admit it, all companies are desperate for a way to push the tablet market to grow again. Phablets have sunk their teeth into tablets over the last couple of quarters, owning a good chunk of the US smartphone market, and leaving tablets in decline. Most believe that the answer to the challenge is Apple's rumored iPad Pro, or iPad Plus, and today we get both good and bad news. On the positive front, trusted sources claim that Apple is already in talks with display suppliers like LG, JDI and Samsung in order to mass produce AgNW-coated touch panels for the iPad Pro. AgNW ...

    Apple is in desperate need to get iPads to sell again, even if the company doesn't state it explicitly. Worldwide tablet sales have been on decline for years now, and most analysts predict this has a lot to do with phablets. We've heard a ton of rumors of what the iPad Pro might be after some case-maker leaks, but today we get insider data to reveal more. Trusted sources claim that the 12.9-inch iPad pro will bring substantial improvements when compared to Apple's existing tablet lineup. For starters, just as we've heard that the next iPhones will bring the same force touch technology of ...

    Now that most of the phones from the first half are already official, the rumor mill could stop, if it weren't such a perpetuum mobile. And with the LG G4 being the most recent Android phone to see the light of day, we're now turning to a device which we've seen and heard rumored for a very long time: the iPad Pro (tentative name, describing the 12-inch iPad that might never see the light of day). The render (or blueprint) which you're seeing attached seems to return to the 12.9-inch rumor (yes, we also heard about 12.2-inches as well). The iPad Pro itself has been often referred to as the ...

    If you're tired of iPad Pro (or iPad Plus) leaks, so are we, and that's mainly because we've spent a good portion of this and last year talking about it. At some point we assumed that the new MacBook was really what all the fuss was about, but more case leaks continue to emerge, and saying otherwise. Today we find some new leaks from Asian case makers, and it seems that Apple is ready for a change. First of all, the case leaks show us much of what we had seen in the past. A 12.9-inch display that's now accompanied by dual speakers on the sides, both new changes to the existing iPads that ...

    For a minute there, we thought that the launch of Apple's new MacBook would be the end of the iPad Pro/Plus rumors that we've been talking about for months. We only had one Cupertino product with a 12-inch display in our radar, and that ended up matching some of the specs of Apple's new notebook. What's interesting is that rumors for this larger iPad continue, and this time we hear of design changes. Case manufacturers are rarely wrong with case designs, and today we land some new leaks that show us the case for a larger iPad Plus or iPad Pro, and probably the most striking difference of ...

    Yesterday those just-can't-shake-'em larger-screened iPad rumors popped their head back up again, claiming that Apple both really was intending to get this so-called iPad Pro (or is it Plus?) out this spring, and that those plans have since been shelved, with a fall launch now looking more likely. Say what you will about how a still-unofficial model's release can't be capital-d delayed; that's just what sources have been reporting. Now a new source is attempting to confirm those same post-spring launch rumors, as well as talking a little about possible hardware decisions, including the ...

    Where the heck is Apple's new, larger entry into its tablet family, the long-rumored iPad Pro? The supposed 12.9-inch model has been the subject of much discussion for well over a year by this point, but so far it's failed to materialize. Recent spec leaks and shots of extra-large iPad cases have helped fuel reports that Apple could finally launch the larger iPad sometime this spring, and with an Apple event just days away, it wasn't crazy to think that some degree of official news could be forthcoming. However, a new rumor now advises us to temper our expectations, and warns that it's ...

    One of the very cool things about big expos like MWC is how they expose us to so many different kinds of devices all at once. Sure, the bulk of them are likely to be running Android, but we're sure to see products based on any number of mobile platforms, from Ubuntu, to Firefox OS, and more. For all the OS diversity the show will bring, there will always be a few hold-outs, and top on that list of doesn't-play-well-with-others is Apple, perfectly content to go its own way for its announcements. Luckily, we won't have long to wait after MWC before Apple is ready with some news of its own, ...

    Apple is definitely not a company that can be trusted when it comes to the leaks of its product roadmap. Just a few years ago the company assured the public that it didn't believe in 7-inch tablets, and well, the iPad mini can help us prove our point. Apple also claimed that the existence of a computer with a touch screen would not be optimal for the user when it launched the 11-inch MacBook Air, but with all the leaks of a larger 12-inch iPad Air Plus or iPad Pro, it seems the company is on the verge of contradicting itself again. New leaks show us that Chinese companies are already ...

    We've been waiting for the larger iPad -- tentatively named the iPad Pro -- to officially surface for the longest time, and that's not necessarily because we need it, but because the slate has been rumored for more than a year. The last time we heard about it, it had a 12.2-inch screen and we've seen some alleged schematics, and then, more recently, aside from more rumors, we've also seen a render comparing how the tablet would look next to the 12-inch MacBook Air (another device which is in a rumor stage, as Apple currently only has an 11 and a 13-inch MacBook Air). This time we're ...

    A couple of years ago, it would've been almost impossible to imagine Apple experimenting with anything outside its comfort zone. That said, the same company that was reluctant to launch a mini tablet, did with the iPad mini, and the same company that denied the need for a bigger iPhone, launched two of them with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Recent reports claim that Apple is working on a larger iPad and even a 12-inch MacBook Air, and if you've ever wondered what that will look like, have a look. Designer Martin Hajek has already garnered some significant fame for his iPhone renders in ...

    There's no denying that Apple found new success with its launch of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The company has broken every sales record it had in just the first few weeks of sales, making it clear that customers did want a larger display on an iPhone. That being said, we also heard some recent reports claiming that Apple is working on a smaller 4-inch iPhone, and these rumors gain more traction today. Analyst Timothy Arcuri of Cowen and Company landed some fame recently with some accurate rumors about the display size of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus earlier this year. Today, Arcuri ...

    Not too long ago we were talking about rumors of a 12.9-inch iPad, something that (whether rightfully or not) managed to pick up the name “iPad Pro” along the way. But then a few weeks back we heard some slightly different details, like how this could be a 12.2-incher, instead. Today the changes keep coming, as not only do we get to take a peek at a possible leaked schematic for the tablet, but hear a new name and check out some fresh release rumors. Instead of the iPad Pro, apparently we're now calling this guy the iPad Air Plus – while still, none of this remains confirmed. The new ...
