We won’t be seeing larger Apple iPads until next year, and the iPhone 6 may be to blame.
Unnamed sources told the Wall Street Journal that plans to increase production on larger iPad models have been pushed back while the company struggles to meet demand for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Suppliers in Asia told the Journal that they’d originally been scheduled to up iPad production volumes in December.
The news broke last week that Apple would be unveiling new products at an event at its Cupertino, Calif., headquarters on October 16. Rumor has it one new product may be a larger iPad. This new device will feature a 12.9-inch liquid-crystal-display screen, according to in-the-know suppliers.
It’s unclear if Apple’s allegedly delayed iPad production means that the company will not be introducing its new iPad at the event after all. But if sources close to the situation are correct, it will be a while longer until these iPads make their way to the public.
