Retina Displays for 12.9-Inch iPad Already in Production?

Posted November 19, 2013 at 2:41pm by iClarified
Retina displays for a 12.9-inch iPad are already in production, according to the KoreaTimes. It's previously been reported that Apple plans to release a larger tablet next year; however, this report is the first to suggest that production is underway.

“Apple’s local first-tier display supplier is now producing a 12.9-inch Retina Display to be used in the new iPad, which will be coming out sometime early next year,” an official at a local Apple supplier in Korea told The Korea Times by telephone Tuesday.

“That display is now being manufactured by the supplier's plant in Korea,” he added.

The official said the new tablet display will be nearly UHD.

“The 12.9-inch iPad will have improved picture quality. As the Apple partner intends to boost its lineup for displays that have almost ultra high-definition (UHD) quality, the upcoming iPad will provide very clear quality similar to that of UHD,” said the official.

You can check out some mockups of what a 13-inch tablet might look like here.

Stupid. Tim cook is flailing, trying any stupid form factor for a temporary boost in sales. What would be cool is a screen that can handle a sharp stylus and is pressure sensitive so you can actually draw.

You're exaggerating! The picture here is a concept but Tim isn't dumb as you would think! He just announced ipad being slightly smaller with the bezrl but he would release this immediatly, not to mention he said the current ipad is "full sized" and with that being said, there is no point in making it bigger nor would Apple try to increase weight and size of a tablet if it's already big enough!

bezel* would not*

What would set iPad apart from the rest if it crossed over to both Mac and iPad

Oh dear god, why? Wtf ape? If this is true then seriously WTF?!?! This would be almost as bad as releasing a 6" iPhone, the full size iPad is already perfect in size IT DOES NOT NEED TO BE MADE BIGGER!!!!! This would just ruin the iPad and everything apple has made it to be.

I can see making it for like hospitals and such mounted on walls easy to navigate through their apps for the office

Because one hand use is for phones and 4" is enough, why should phones be big like tablets? That's what samsuck does!
gamerscul9870 - November 20, 2013 at 12:05pm
At least I don't need to be hulk to get a note 3 just to waste more money on size and buy a pocket big enough for it! Sorry you're in condition to see it!

Are u kidding me? That would be way too big. A 7 to 10 in. tablet is perfect. As for the IPhone, maybe I'm in a minority here, but I love it being only 4 inches cause I love holding it with only one hand. I hope the the IPhones that are coming don't have a screen bigger than 4.8 inches.
THui - November 19, 2013 at 6:29pm
Plus, having a 4 in IPhone is what sets it apart from all the other smartphone makers. It just that all these people demand a bigger screen and Apple has no choice but to make bigger screened IPhones in the future. Any screen bigger than 4.8 in, I won't buy.

Just make sure you don't drop that big boy!
gamerscul9870 - November 19, 2013 at 4:07pm
Honestly, what is the point of making it bigger? Use it to make the surface like shit? If would be heavier to!
zetaprime - November 19, 2013 at 3:47pm
That's way too big for a tablet. Even the iPad Air is too big. I got the Retina Mini instead. A tablet, IMHO should be a one handed device.

You'll have to have this on a roll around stand to use or leave on a desk

Why does the 12,9" looks bigger than the 13,3" Air?! :-D
=3 - November 19, 2013 at 3:54pm
Cause it is a 11" AIR?

Apple better start producing a larger iphone if they don't want to loose the phone market :( instead of a 5C & 5S.... Just do an iPhone 4" & iphone 5" & the sales would rocket before the holidays!! The 5C is just born-dead... People who buy iphones wants "Quality & Top Hi-Tech"... a disappointed iphone user... (but I'll wait till 1st half 2014 before switching to Android JUST BECAUSE OF THE SIZE...)
zetaprime - November 19, 2013 at 3:50pm
I'm sure the iPhone 6 will come in a larger size. Apple has to be aware that all of the competitors phones are larger.
gamerscul9870 - November 19, 2013 at 4:08pm
They'll make it just to get big screen beggars get what they want and they switch to notes for that other than worrying about specs!
