Apple will unleash its much–rumoured 12–inch iPad Pro in the autumn, according to analyst Patrick Wang. He says supply-chain sources have backed up his claims about the enterprise–focused device.

Wang’s assertion runs counter to a string of rumours that emerged at the end of 2013, suggesting Cupertino is readying the tablet for a spring release. Pushing it back to autumn would allow Apple to tie the launch in with its other iPad models, which are traditionally revealed at that time.

While Wang says the tablet will have a 12–inch display and aim to bring the iPad and MacBook Air closer together, he doesn’t disclose too many other spec-sheet specifics.

He claims the device will use an A8 chip, but with the iPad Air currently rocking an A7 processor, that’s not too much of a surprise.

A larger iPad is certainly looking nailed-on. Cupertino saw its tablet market share slip drastically in 2013, with Samsung likely to be on a par by the end of 2014. A new version of its sought–after slate may help boost sales and give it an edge in the office too.
