Forget 4k Thunderbolt monitors of 4k iTVs for a second, today it is being reported by the Chinese publication PadNews that Apple could fit the rumoured 12.9-inch iPad Maxi with a 4k display. If this report turn out to be true it means that the iPad Maxi’s screen would have over 8 million pixels squeezed into just under 13-inches. This would be the same amount of pixels as in Dell’s recent 4k monitors they released.
World’s first 4k tablet (20-inches)
The report went on to state that Apple has been experimenting with 5 different screen resolutions that includes 2k displays and of course 4k displays. It also thinks Apple is going to release one iPad in April 2014 which will be an iPad Air successor with Touch ID and faster CPU along with another one utilizing 4k display technology in October 2014.
So why would Apple even want to release a 4k tablet?
Well first of all it is worth mentioning that just because Apple has been caught testing 4k tablets doesn’t mean they will release them this year or ever. Apple has been caught testing numerous prototypes of products, but it will only release it if the company deems it as perfect.
Getting back to the question, however, it would once again propel them in front of the crowd as 4k would give the iPad Maxi 400 pixels per inch. Of course the tablet wouldn’t appeal to everyone, but rather creative Pros or Power Users due to its size and price tag.
