Retina MacBook Air coming soon, as larger ‘iPad Pro’ gets delayed

Apple is going to start 12-inch MacBook Air mass-production next quarter, Digitimes has learned from sources familiar with the matter, with Quanta Computer apparently being entrusted with assembling the new MacBook Air model. Apple wants a slightly bigger Air model than its entry-level 11-inch model in order to better differentiate the iPad and Air – the 11-inch MacBook Air has a screen size similar to the iPad Air’s – and “establish a clear boundary between the two product lines.” More →

Designer imagines the stunning 12.9-inch iPad Pro that could have been

Last week, a report stated that Apple has decided to scrap its efforts to launch a larger “iPad Pro” tablet. The much rumored 12.9-inch iPad tablet was reportedly set to bridge the gap between the iPad Air and Apple’s MacBook lineup, but apparently it won’t be seeing the light of day anytime soon. Apple fans saddened by the news were left wondering what might have been, and now they have a fairly believable mock-up to cry over. More →

Apple reportedly decides not to launch its 12.9-inch iPad Pro

Bulls excited by promise of never-before-seen Apple innovations

Apple’s stock price could grow by 20% this year, Wedge Partners analyst Brian Blair told Barron’s, while revealing some details about Apple’s potential launch plans for these new products. More →

What if the 12.9-inch ‘iPad Pro’ looked like this?

What if the 12.9-inch ‘iPad Pro’ looked like this?

The person in the image above is not a professional working a 12.9-inch iPad Pro model with a stylus. And for that matter, Apple did not just leak the 13-inch iPad Pro on its website. The company “doesn’t leak unannounced products,” as iMore succinctly puts it. The image simply shows the lid assembly of a MacBook laptop, and was posted on Apple’s Supplier Responsibility webpage alongside various other images of employees working on existing Apple products. But the image apparently fooled many into believing the company may have inadvertently a rumored iPad model. More →

Video: New iPad Pro concept goes where Apple has vowed to never tread

The latest rumors indicate that Apple is working on a giant version of its iPad that will be tailored more toward education markets and perhaps business markets as well. But just because this so-called ‘iPad Pro’ will be more like a PC than Apple’s traditional tablets, that doesn’t mean that Apple will pull an all-out Windows 8 by giving users the option to switch between an OS X-style desktop view and an iOS-style mobile view. In fact, Apple executives have said repeatedly that trying to merge OS X and iOS would be a “waste of energy.” More →

Apple’s upcoming 12-inch iPad may hammer the notebook market

Apple and Google have both already done a lot to shake up the traditional PC market but don’t expect either of them to stop anytime soon. Barron’s flags a note from Evercore Partners analyst Patrick Wang, who thinks that Apple’s upcoming 12- to 13-inch iPad has the potential to “transform the traditional notebook market as we know it” because it will be the first time that Apple has made an iPad that’s targeted specifically toward Microsoft’s PC customer base.
