Apple reportedly working on a 16-inch iPad for next year


  • A larger iPad is reportedly in the development
  • Apple is said to be working on a 16-inch model
  • This will blur the line between the iPad and MacBook

Apple is reportedly said to be working on a 16-inch iPad and it is expected to debut in the fourth quarter of 2023. The news comes from The Information’s Wayne Ma who added that the 16-inch model would be the biggest iPad in the company’s tablet portfolio. 

Earlier this month, the Cupertino-based tech giant launched the iPad Pro 2022 and iPad (10th gen). The brand also hiked prices of the iPad Air (5th gen), Mini (6th gen), and iPad (9th gen).

Apple reportedly working on 16-inch iPad

The source says that the 16-inch iPad would blur the lines between the iPad and MacBook. This is because Apple currently sells the 16-inch MacBook. The 16-inch iPad will probably be targeted at creative workers including graphic designers and artists who would benefit from the larger screen real estate. The 12.9-inch iPad is the largest tablet that Apple offers currently. 

If the report indeed turns out to be true then the difference between the 16-inch iPad and MacBook would become indistinct. This is because the iPad already packs top-notch hardware that is more powerful than most PCs. It remains to be seen how Apple positions the larger size iPad in its portfolio and whether it will be called iPad Pro or just the iPad. In addition to The Information, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman also reported in the past that Apple was considering making larger iPads. 

DSCC Analyst Ross Young stated earlier that Apple was also working on a 14-inch iPad Pro with a mini LED display.
