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.

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 →
