Apple has long been rumoured to be working a larger 12-inch iPad. Reportedly dubbed the ‘iPad Pro’, the slate would be aimed at professional workstation users attempting to move more of their productivity from a PC to a tablet. According to a recent report from Bloomberg, Apple has apparently been met with supply issues for the display of the unannounced tablet and is expecting to start shipping “around September.”
Another iPad Pro rumour surfaced today from the Wall Street Journal, stating the company will include some sort of fast-charging technology that will ensure a long battery life, noting it will possibly have “faster technology for data synchronization between the larger iPad and other computing devices.” Finally, and probably the least likely, is that Apple has “been considering adding ports to connect to a keyboard and mouse.”
Apple has been trying to better engage the enterprise market in recent months, and a larger tablet may be more attractive to business users. Apple recently signed an enterprise-focused partnership with IBM that has seen the two organizations work together to build native apps and cross-selling of devices and services.
