According to reports, the Cupertino firm Apple is said to be scrambling to get apps ready for the launch of the iPad 2’s successor in March.
The news comes to courtesy of The Verge. According to their sources who wish to remain anonymous, Apple is said to be in “crunch mode” and is “working at ‘an increased rate”, making sure that it has apps for the next generation iPad, once it is officially unveiled. The apps are also to be used for Apple’s TV ads, promoting the iPad 3.
Apple is said to be focusing on apps with intense graphics. This lines up with AllThingsD’s report that the iPad 3 will sport a retina display, an enhanced GPU, and a more powerful processor. Other reports suggest that the next generation iPad will be named the iPad 2S instead of the iPad 3, just like the iPhone 4 and its successor the iPhone 4S.
If the report is true, Apple is said to be officially unveiling the tablet in its favorite venue, the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. Also, Tim Cook, Apple’s current CEO, will be taking center stage to unveil the new iPad.
AllThingsD was on the money when they predicted the iPad 2 was landing in March of 2011. Will they be on the money again with the iPad 3 (or iPad 2S)? Give us your thoughts.
