  • New Report Claims 'iPad Pro' Parts to Begin Shipping in September

    According to a new report from a J.P. Morgan investor memo, Apple’s rumored 12.9-inch iPad Pro will begin shipping parts next month. It was noted that the parts being shipped will produce approximately 1 million units a month this year. J.P Morgan’s analysts revealed that Apple will likely be using ‘glass-film-film’ touch panel structures so the accuracy on the jumbo tablet will be improved. Currently, the company uses just a glass-film structure on the iPad Air and iPad mini.

    It was noted that Sharp and GIS are handling iPad Pro displays and touch panels as opposed to LG Display and TPK. Even if LG Display and TPK are involved, it is likely that they are just playing minimal roles. The report also claims that Apple is consigning the display panels to touch panel makers for the first time. This means that Foxconn is basically in charge of touch, display, and assembly of the iPad Pro.

    As for the device’s LED backlights, it was said that Radiant is in charge of it. Nissha Printing was also named as another main supplier for the tablet. Rumors have circulated claiming the iPad will be unveiled sometime in October, so let’s see if the rumors were accurate and whether or not Apple will be doing that.
