The rumored 12-inch MacBook Air and 12-inch iPad Air Plus/iPad Pro are reportedly launching later this year, as recent reports have confirmed major details about Apple’s newest MacBook model.

Here’s why Apple’s upcoming ‘iPad Pro’ will be a failure, according to Steve Jobs

Here’s why Apple’s upcoming ‘iPad Pro’ will be a failure, according to Steve Jobs

Late Apple CEO Steve Jobs will be remembered for a number of things. There is little question that he helped shaped the world as we know it today, first by pushing modern computing forward and then by leading the charge that moved computing off of our desks and laps, and into our pockets. Jobs was never afraid to speak his mind of course, and he would regularly make bold statements that promoted Apple’s products while belittling the competition. Of course, he was also known for his epic 180s, when Apple would go on to release a product that completely went against Jobs’s earlier statements.

Now, it looks like that tradition will live on when Apple releases its hotly anticipated “iPad Pro” sometime later this year. More →

The iPad’s momentum has been seriously slowing down lately, which is why Apple is reportedly trying to give it some fresh life with a massive new 12-inch “iPad Pro” that will supposedly be the closest thing to a tablet-PC hybrid the company has yet released. MacRumors has snagged a leaked photo taken from a Weibo account in China that’s simply labeled “iPad Pro” and that seems to show the manufacturing mold for the device’s rear shell, although MacRumors points out that this pic may be for a dummy unit that isn’t the final version.

This might be why the iPad mini 3 didn’t get a major update this year

Even though Apple released two new iPad models this year, including the iPad Air 2 and the iPad mini 3, only the 9.7-inch version received a significant upgrade, with the mini model only getting a Touch ID fingerprint sensor and an extra color option.
