Larger iPad & iPhone rumoured

There’s no shortage of rumours when it comes to Apple, and we’ve spied another two on the horizon. The Wall Street Journal is reporting today that Apple are currently testing a 13″ iPad and looking at screen components for a larger iPhone. Apple testing things is hardly uncommon, of course, but the rumours about a large screen could match  a slew of patents filed for in recent years by Apple to do with hybrid displays.

Patently Apple reported back in 2011 that Apple were working on a hybrid “Post-PC” device, and had filed patents for what appears to be a multi-touch iMac and a dockable screen.

Earlier this year, back in April, Patently Apple also reported on another Apple patent filed for a removable touchscreen and retractable magnet mechanism – a hybrid notebook. This would make far more sense in this context, given the rumours about 13″ screens and that consumers have been asking for a touchscreen Macbook for a while now.

It’s worth noting that Tim Cook said during the Q2 earnings call with investors that “I assure you that we’re working very closely with manufacturing partners to achieve a very exciting roadmap.”
