The iPad series is currently up to 12.9 inches in terms of screen size. Since the new iPad Pro models were released last month, some iPad fans have called Apple to make an even bigger iPad. What do you think of such an opportunity?
With the latest iPad Pro iPad, Apple made home-run designs from iPhone X to iPad series. For the 10.5 “iPad, the company kept the overall form factor in the same way, but as the screen now stretches closer to the edges, it measures a slightly larger 11 inch.
Apple’s 12.9-inch model shrunk the device’s overall footprint and chose to hold the same 12.9-inch screen size. That means you still get the same monitor, but in a much smaller body.
With the latest press against smaller frameworks, some call Apple to make an even bigger iPad Pro. While the biggest iPad currently sold by Apple is 12.9-inch, some iPad fans say that Apple could push it to about 15 inches.
For example, a few weeks back, developer Steven Troughton-Smith showed how iOS would need some work to run on a 14.9-inch iPad Pro. For example, Safari can show two side-by-side tabs, as well as a third app with a 14.9-inch screen.
For Apple, there are many benefits to go bigger than 12.9 inches. For one, it would create synergy with the MacBook Pro lineup, which is also maximized at 15-inch. A 14.9-inch iPad Pro would also help Apple to market the device further as a “computer” replacement – and further increase the iPad average selling price.
Personally I would definitely be interested in a 14.9-inch iPad Pro. Not only would it be a good media consumption device, but the thin and light iPad design paired with a 14.9-inch screen would make an excellent productivity machine. I’ve long wanted Apple to make a 15-inch MacBook Air, but a 14.9-inch iPad Pro would cross many of the same boxes for me personally.
