The last time we heard about the 12.9-inch iPad was all the way back in January, where we heard Apple would launch the bigger iPad before the end of 2014. But now Bloomberg is reporting that production on the larger, 12.9-inch iPad will crank up in the first quarter of next year.
Bloomberg is reporting on the news from "people with knowledge on the matter" who "asked not to be identified because the details aren't public." The sources didn't spill much details on the bigger iPad, apart from the fact that we should expect it to go into production early next year, and feature a 12.9-inch display.
Why the need of a bigger iPad? Bloomberg thinks that Apple could make waves in the enterprise market with a business-focused iPad, which could counter Microsoft's Surface Pro 3. Would you buy a bigger iPad? Or do you want to see a convertible device with OS X with the ability to detach from its keyboard to be used as a tablet?
