A previously unknown iPad device designated as ‘iPad3,6′ has shown up in a developer’s application analytics, which according to MacRumors, could represent Apple’s 2013 iPad model. The device also appears to be running either an A6 chip itself or a variation on Apple’s custom A6 design, claims the source.
The report points out that this ’iPad3,6′ device cannot be the widely rumored iPad Mini since that is believed to be a derivative of the iPad 2 running Apple’s cheaper A5 chip and has already been seen in logs carrying ‘iPad2,5′ and ‘iPad2,6′ designations.
“It is unclear exactly what this new iPad device represents, as an “iPad3,6″ designation would seem to imply a derivative of the current-generation iPad, which is designated “iPad3,1″, “iPad3,2″, and “iPad3,3″ for the various Wi-Fi and cellular models. There have been rumors that Apple is planning to release a tweaked version of the third-generation iPad in the coming weeks in order to incorporate a Lightning connector and other internal changes.”
In my opinion, it seems hard to believe that such an incremental update would also include a newer version of the A6 chip. What do you think?
