Apple could launch its biggest iPad Air with 12.9-inch display soon

Apple is reportedly in the process of developing an expanded iPad Air with a 12.9-inch display, set to be introduced as the 6th Generation model of the iPad Air, potentially powered by Apple's M2 chipset. 

Although rumors about this new iPad have circulated since October of the previous year, a recent report by 91Mobiles has now unveiled renders of the upcoming device.

As per the 91Mobiles report, based on information from industry sources, the new 12.9-inch iPad Air is anticipated to maintain a design similar to the current generation, featuring a slender body and an all-screen design. 

The tablet may include a top-mounted Touch ID button and bottom speaker grilles, reminiscent of the previous model. Additionally, the upcoming iPad Air is expected to showcase a side switch and a USB-C port.

A notable change in design can be observed around the rear camera, with a visible border around the lens and LED flash, as per the report. Despite this alteration, Apple seems to be keeping other design elements consistent with the previous iPad Air.

According to an Indian Express report, the forthcoming 12.9-inch iPad Air is poised to narrow the gap between the Pro and Air lineups significantly. This move would offer users a larger display option from Apple while still providing cost savings compared to the Pro lineup. 

Additionally, if the bezels around the iPad Air 12.9 inch remain similar to the previous generation, it could result in larger overall dimensions compared to the 12.9-inch iPad Pro lineup.

The current iPad Air 5th Gen boasts a 10.9-inch screen, but Apple might introduce two sizes with the upcoming iPad launch later this year.

A previous report by Bloomberg indicated Apple's plan to unveil a 12.9-inch iPad Air with four potential models, codenamed J507, J508, J537, and J538, available in both wifi and cellular versions. 

The report also suggested that the larger display in the iPad Air series aligns with Apple's strategy to offer diverse options at various price points, similar to their approach with the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro series.
