After the blunders of the iOS 7 and OS X Mavericks upgrades, Apple has definitely learned its lesson and has decided to delay the release of its new products. The much anticipated iWatch appears to have taken a back seat as Apple works hard and focuses its resources on the release of the new iPad Max with a big Retina display.

The Cupertino-based company is known for its meticulous ways. Apple is said to desperately try to save its reputation and image after its latest releases that almost sabotaged it. It appears to have adopted the moral of its challenge and slowly and steadily goes on with the race.

The Internet has been bombarded by rumours about the release of the Apple iWatch. Speculations also circulated about the iPad with a bigger screen. According to the latest rumours, the big screen iPad will likely make its introduction before the long-awaited iWatch.

Based on Internet speculations, the iWatch is a wristwatch, wearable device that's made out of a curved glass. The iWatch is supposed to be running on iOS. The release of the iWatch is unconfirmed at the moment and the new 12.9-inch iPad with Retina display has accelerated its frequency on the rumour mill.

The biggest notebook ODM company in the world, Quanta, claims that it will be producing the big iPad. Other rumours also suggest that Apple plans to develop a tablet-note, a 2-in-1 device for future release. It has been almost two years since Apple released the 7.9-inch iPad Mini which came out with a standard display. After constant criticisms though, the company launched the 2nd Gen iPad Mini with Retina display with the powerful A7 chip.

No official information have been announced regarding the large screen iPad or what fans would call, the iPad Max, but rumour has it the device is set to launch in 2014 and the 13-inch device will even come with an Ultra HD - 4K video quality. This technology is still very expensive and only available in select devices. This is similar to huge screen computer monitors and television sets.

Despite it being based on pure rumours with no official spec details or release date, the big screened tablet is already stirring agitation and excitement among millions of Apple lovers, loyalists and fans across the globe.
