  • Rumor: New iPad to Launch by Summer's End


    According to a Chinese publication by the name of Apple Daily, a new iPad is to presumably launch by the end of summer. Based on whatís being said, the new iPad wonít be the long-rumored 7-inch iPad that many have been waiting for. The new iPad is supposed to feature a thinner design, a better battery, and a better display as well. The screen here is rumored to feature indium gallium zinc oxide (IGZO) panel technology, which would be an improvement over the current display. Last but not least, Apple Daily reports that Apple will switch display manufacturers from Samsung to Sharp.

    With the current iPad being introduced just a few months ago and given the suggested time of release, the rumor seems to be a hoax. Although having predicted some credible information in the past, the Chinese publications tend to have a spotty record when it comes to rumors and speculation and this is no different. Itís very unlikely from Apple to stray from their rather consistent release schedule of products and realistically releasing an iPad a few months after a refresh seems like it would be a very stupid idea.

    If it was released, it would likely be released in September or October presumably alongside the next-generation iPhone. That being said, what do you think?

      Oh look, the same rumors that never happen. Are people genuinely brain dead? "Apple Daily" is stupid for starting this story but MMi is 10 times more stupid for repeating it.

      1 iPad per year. 1 iPhone per year. No more no less.

      Agreed. They just dropped the latest iPad..doesn't make sense to have another release so soon.

      Agreed. They haven't deviated from annual releases in five years for ios devices and it works for them.

      And next they will release the iplanet just time for Xmas!! Best planet ever lol it's not in apples interest to make a new model so soon unless it was a smaller version for people with a budget, but then the iPad 2 has really taken that place!

      the thing i like about apple is that they don't have new releases every 2 months on their products. you really get to enjoy what you've bought and aren't left thinking... "I should've waited for that one"

      Okay this is definitely not going to happen. However a 7 inch I think could happen this summer but have my doubts

      Way to feed the rumor-mil Akshay! However, the 7 inch iPad would be more of a possibility.

      Nope. No reason for apple to spend all that money for a simple spec boost. They are nowhere near that desperate.
