Based on a fresh report, Apple has something good cooking: a special version of iPadOS 17 for bigger iPad sizes. Thanks to Twitter user @analyst941, a special version of Apple’s future iPad software will enable the more and cooler advanced features of a variety of larger iPads that are in the works. The best thing? It is starting with a 14.1-inch iPad with an M3 Pro CPU that is scheduled for delivery next year. How great is that?!
Check out what @analyst941 shared on Twitter:
I’ve heard there’s a special version of iPadOS 17, being developed specifically for larger iPad Pro/Ultra/Studio model(s), there’s a slight change that would give the 14.1” model support for up to 2 6K displays at 60hz.
This signals for a definite M3 Pro SoC in the flagship iPad https://t.co/7FcOyaZFdv

What are your thoughts about bigger iPads being released with the latest improvements?
The recent report, though, doesn’t come with new stuff. While reputable display expert Ross Young once claimed that a cooler 14.1-inch iPad Pro with a mini-LED display was planned to appear in the first quarter of 2023, Bloomberg has frequently addressed Apple’s interest in larger iPads. And as a matter of fact there are already many speculations regarding the release date and size of the initial models; Apple is actually thought to have been working on iPads with even bigger displays since mid-2021.
However, based on @analyst941’s claims, iPadOS 17 will enable the 14.1-inch iPad model’s ability to operate up to two 6K screens at 60Hz through Thunderbolt 4. This might be accomplished via daisy-chaining screens, but there’s also a catch! It could actually mean that the bigger iPad has more than one Thunderbolt connector.
The current 12.9-inch iPad Pro size would be totally surpassed by the 14.1-inch iPad, making it the biggest iPad to date. The leaker went on further saying that the tech giant could choose an exclusive new name for the larger upcoming iPad in order to set them apart from the current ones. It’s somehow making sense, isn’t it?!
We might see iPads named “iPad Ultra” or “iPad Studio,” or whatever names Apple is into nowadays.
