Washington: Apple’s upcoming flagship tablet 12.9 inch Apple iPad Pro delayed to second quarter of the next year, report claims

According to Digitimes, the manufacturer Quanta Computer has landed the contract to product the larger tablet for the second half of 2014.

This means that a larger iPad is indeed on its way, with Digitimes’ sources suggesting that the large iPad is aimed at “education and enterprise” markets.

But according to the same report, Quanta might face some challenges with assembling the super-sized tablet due to its “industrial design”.

As for the iWatch, the same report also says that pilot production for the device has started, with Quanta and Foxconn Electronics taking charge.

However, due to “low yields” – a low number of finished products rolling off the production line actually fully functioning and able to be sold – mass production is said to have been pushed back from the first quarter of next year to the second.

Looks like Apple’s iTV might be on the backburner while it deals with all this, even if it did just buy 3D motion-tracking company PrimeSense.
