Apple may introduce a bigger iPad early next year E-mail Tweet Facebook Google Plus Linkedin Share icons by Tom Huddleston, Jr. @FortuneMagazine August 26, 2014, 6:55 PM EDT Apple AAPL certainly seems committed to the idea that bigger is better. The tech giant reportedly plans to introduce a larger version of its iPad early next year. That’s according to a Bloomberg report, which cites anonymous sources saying that a new iPad measuring 12.9 inches diagonally is set to go into production in the first quarter of 2015. Apple’s current iPads come with 7.9-inch or 9.7-inch displays. New versions in those sizes are expected to be unveiled early next month at a much-hyped, but as yet unconfirmed Apple event, according to a recent report. The company is also expected to use the occasion to premiere its iPhone 6, including a model with a bigger 5.5- inch screen. Currently iPhone 5s models have a 4.9-inch screen. Rumors of a larger iPad called the “iPad Pro” emerged last summer, but MacRumors later reported that the company had put those plans on hold. WATCH: Apple’s iPad getting bigger?
