The tipster correctly predicted certain details about the iPhone 14 Pro’s Lingering Island before its release.
The leaker also said that Apple is working on a “special iPadOS 17” for the rumored larger iPad. sources like Ross Young have previously said that Apple is working on a 14.1-inch iPad that could launch sometime this year or early 2024, and there are even rumors that a 16-inch model is in development.
A “special version” of iPadOS 17 will reportedly support two 6K resolution 60Hz refresh rate displays, but the source provided no more details about this update.
In addition, as part of iPadOS 17, Apple is also preparing to bring “all the features” of the iPhone lock screen customization to the iPad, such as preferences for the clock position on the iPad lock screen.
