We’re hearing rumors about a new iPad these days. It’s believed that Apple is going to release one early next year that has a display above 10 inches. A new rumor out of Taiwan suggests that the company is going to release the 2017 iPad with a 10.5 inch display and that it’s going to be an “education and enterprise” tablet. Apple is said to start mass production of this new tablet next month.

It’s also claimed that the 2017 iPad is going to feature Apple’s A10X processor. No further details about the specifications have been leaked so far but as is the case with every refreshed tablet, we can expect faster memory, software improvements, and perhaps some design tweaks as well.

Apple is apparently going to launch the 2017 iPad with a 10.5 inch display because tablets with 10 inch or larger displays are proving to be popular among businesses and in the education sector in the United States.

The company’s existing lineup of tablets includes a 9.7 inch model and the 12.9 inch iPad Pro. This will then be a new dimension for the company’s tablet lineup and so far the rumor mill is in agreement that it’s going to be out at some point early next year.

Since Apple doesn’t really drop hints about its future products it can’t be said with certainty right now if this is indeed going to happen. Rumors about future Apple products are a dime a dozen and it’s best to take them with a grain of salt until there’s more solid information to go on.
