Apple is reportedly creating a ‘particular’ model of iPadOS 17 for the 14-inch iPad
As WWDC approaches, we’ve heard loads of reviews about iOS 17, however the iPadOS 17 rumor mill has been fairly quiet. According to a brand new report, there could also be a motive for that: Apple is reportedly engaged on a “particular” model of iPadOS 17 that may debut alongside the long-rumored 14-inch mannequin.
According to Analyst941 on Twitter, which has already leaked a ton of details about iOS 17 and watchOS 10, there’s a “particular model of iPadOS 17, being developed particularly for bigger iPad Pro/Ultra/Studio mannequin(s)” within the works at Apple. It’s unclear when (or if) this model of iPadOS 17 would launch, however it’s been rumored for years that Apple is engaged on an iPad bigger than the present 12.9-inch iPad Pro.
Analyst941 doesn’t supply any particulars concerning the interface or options however shares this one fascinating tidbit: The 14-inch mannequin will convey help for 2 exterior 6K shows at 60Hz. The present iPad Pro with an M2 processor can join a single exterior show with as much as 6K decision at 60Hz, the identical limitation as the opposite M2 Macs. However, the M2 Pro chip helps two 6K shows over Thunderbolt, which suggests the 14-inch iPad may have an M2 Pro or M3 Pro processor and probably a second Thunderbolt port.
Support for a number of shows would cement the iPad as a Mac different and develop the capabilities of Stage Manger, which now could be restricted to a single exterior show. Apple lastly opened the iPad to correct exterior show help with iOS 16, letting customers multitask and work in separate apps and drag and drop recordsdata and home windows between the 2 screens. Previous variations of iPadOS had been principally restricted to display mirroring.
These options are unlikely to make an look at WWDC, nonetheless. While we’re anticipating to get the customizable Lock Screen and different options in iPadOS 17, the options right here will probably arrive as a part of a mid-cycle launch alongside the M3 iPad Pro and 14-inch iPad Pro.
