Apple rumored to be working on giant 12-inch iPad

Apple 12-Inch iPad Rumor

Apple may have missed the boat with the phablet craze but now it may be trying to beat Samsung to the punch by releasing an iPad Mega. Chinese newspaper United Daily News reports that Apple is teaming up with longtime manufacturing partner Quanta Computer to design a 12-inch iPad that the company will use to offset declines in MacBook Air sales. This isn’t the first time we’ve heard rumors about a bigger iPad, of course, as earlier this year The Wall Street Journal reported that Apple was testing out a 13-inch iPad alongside a larger “iPhablet” that would go head-to-head with Samsung’s Galaxy Note series.
