Apple Suppliers Rumoured to be Testing 11 or 13-inch "iPad Maxi"

By Gary Cutlack on at

Apple may be about to force the hipsters of the world to upgrade their iPad transportation satchels, thanks to Chinese rumours suggesting 11.4-inch and perhaps even 12.9-inch iPad models are currently undergoing final pre-manufacturing tests.

Chinese site Pad News makes the claim, which suggests Apple's favourite tech-building workhouse Foxconn is testing the larger iPads ahead of a possible announcement that could come as soon as March of 2014. The 12-or-thereabouts-inch iPad has been rumoured since early this summer, back when the WSJ suggested that an Apple 12-incher was undergoing testing. [Pad News via Apple Insider]
