The 12.9-inch iPad Pro is Apple’s biggest tablet, but that might not be true next year. According to The Information, the company prepares a 16-inch iPad.

This device will appear in the fourth quarter of 2023 and it would blur the line between laptop and tablet even more. The proposal would be aimed at creative professionals, but beware, because with a good keyboard and improvements in iPad OS it could become a more competent product than ever to produce.

Bigger better?

The filtration is of course unique because a tablet of these dimensions has advantages and disadvantages. Until now it seemed accepted that tablets should not exceed 12 or 13 inches diagonally: do it converts them into heavy products to carry and operate comfortably.

That makes this project curious: we would have a screen that would be equivalent to that of the 16-inch MacBook Pro, thus allowing creatives and designers to have before them a much larger canvas for your work (and leisure).

A few months ago an analyst anticipated that Apple is preparing a 14-inch iPad Pro, and this new leak seems to suggest that the next family of this device will therefore offer 14 and 16 inch versions.

It is to be hoped that if Apple launches that great tablet it will do so with an accessory in the form of a Smart Cover keyboard. Here there would be room even for a trackpad of generous dimensions as in the MacBook Pro, thus allowing to turn that tablet into an even more striking alternative to these laptops.

That’s where they would come in too future improvements to iPad OS. This year we have seen how Stage Manager tries to bring this operating system even closer to macOS.

The latest statements by Federighi, who did not rule out (as he had always done) a Mac with a touch screen makes us wonder if Apple is not preparing an even bigger surprise. What if those giant iPads weren’t based on iPad OS, but on a macOS with touch support? For leaving the idea, let it not remain.

Be that as it may, the appearance of this tablet poses an equally gigantic price: considering that the 12.9-inch iPad Pro already costs almost 1,500 euros —with its most complete version exceeding 3,000—, a model like this could easily approach 2,000 euros in its original version.
