Apple will release a 16-inch iPad Pro
The Information claims that Apple intends to offer a 16-inch iPad Pro model, citing a source with knowledge of the situation. Apple plans to release the item in the fourth quarter of the next year, most likely around the same time that the M2 iPad Pro did in 2022.
A 16-inch iPad Pro, in our opinion, would most likely be marketed primarily to creative professionals and would not be intended for the public market in the same way that current iPad models are. Think of it as a specialized product for a small but significant audience, similar to the Mac Pro or Pro Display XDR.
The new 16-inch tablet with Apple Pencil may be used by the target market to provide a wider working canvas in programs like Procreate, Affinity Designer, and Adobe Illustrator.
