“iPad Pro” to Enter Production in Sept-Oct, Rumor States


A Taiwanese website called DigiTimes reported today that Apple’s rumored “iPad Pro” will enter production by the end of the 3rd quarter and enter mass production during the 4th, corroborating a recent KGI report that said the rumored 12.9-inch tablet would enter mass production in September-October. 

As Mac Rumors has stated, “The report claims the “iPad Pro” will be released in the fourth quarter, with an estimated 4-5 million shipments in 2015. DigiTimes reported in July that the “iPad Pro” could launch in mid-November as Foxconn prepared to start supplying components at the time, but the release timeframe remains uncertain. 

“The report claims Sharp will be the main supplier of LCD displays for the tablet, while Foxconn subsidiary General Interface Solution (GIS) will provide touch panels. Samsung Display and TPK will be secondary suppliers of LCD assemblies and touch modules respectively, according to the report.
