The much hyped Apple’s 12.9-inch iPad might not make it up at next week’s Apple media event or for that matter any time sooner. The Wall Street Journal reported referring sources familiar to the matter that the planned larger-screen iPad production is getting delayed for the reason that the suppliers are struggling hard to meet up with the rising demand of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
Mass production of the larger iPad was initially planned to be done in December. However, as the 5.5 inch iPhone 6 Plus output is getting into trouble, the display makers team is finding it hard to split their resources and spend time for speeding up the bigger display iPad production.
Also it is learnt that not only the suppliers are having hard time with the demand but also the assembler’s. Foxconn, major Apple iPad and iPhone assembler is also struggling hard to hire enough resources for the factory to get the two new phones built. As per the publication notes, Foxconn at its largest production site has got more than 200,000 workers involved with the building work of the new two iPhones.
As per information received by the Journal from the Asian suppliers it is estimated that the bigger display iPad might come with 12.9-inch LCD with a similar resolution like that of the 9.7-inch iPad Air.
Apple on Wednesday issued invites for the October 16th media gathering on which most expect the company to release its next generation iPad Air along with a new iPad mini and perhaps new Macs.
