The rumor: Apple is planning to ship a new 10.8-inch iPad later this year, according to DigiTimes (61% accurate).
- The new 10.8-inch iPad will likely be an update to the Air line
- It’ll be “more affordable” and new models will be equipped with “high performance CPUs”
Our take: This is good news, but a price tag lower than $499 makes me seriously doubt other rumors of an all-screen design with in-display Touch ID. Still, I think a larger screen will be a solid upgrade even for existing iPad Air users.
