iPad Pro and smaller iPad tablets
The new tablet with an impressive 12.9-inch display should launch in the last part of the year, while Samsung and Sharp are expected to supply the screen panels needed.

A large iPad tablet has been in the rumor mill for quite a while now, and it looks like Apple will turn it into reality just in time for this year's last shopping season. The 12.9-inch iPad Pro may even help the Cupertino giant drive up its dwindling iPad sales figures once again.

Earlier today, a report published by Taiwanese website TechNews revealed that Apple will get the 12.9-inch panels needed for the new product from Sharp and Samsung. Sharp is currently the main supplier of display panels for Apple's iPads. When talking about the iPad Pro, if demand requires more displays than Sharp and Samsung can deliver, Apple also has LG ready to provide what is needed.

The same industry insider who revealed the above also mentioned that largest iPad ever is expected to launch in the fourth quarter of this year, so Apple should unveil it during the company's usual October launch event. The iPad Pro is also packing quad speakers, but we will surely hear more about its specs in the months to come.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
