Apple is planning to release its largest iPad ever late next year, according to a report Wednesday from The Information, which cites an unnamed source. The tablet would have a 16-inch screen, according to the report, far larger than the 12.9-inch screen found on Apple's current largest iPad. 

Apple's largest laptop, the MacBook Pro, also has a 16-inch screen. The release of a 16-inch iPad, rumored to come in the fourth quarter of 2023, would therefore "blur the line between the iPad and MacBook," The Information reported.

Apple didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

In the June 2021 edition of his "Power On" newsletter for Bloomberg, Mark Gurman also reported Apple was investigating larger iPads.
