Huh now that's interesting. It turns out that a near-15-inch screen is big enough for Safari on the iPad to be happy with two tabs side-by-side as well as another app. 🤨 I'm sure that's just a happy accident… The OS doesn't need much work to fill that screen res, either

It's very clear that you could go to near 15" without having to redesign iOS. Software-wise, everything basically just works already. A 15" slot in the lineup would match Mac portables, and caters to Apple's profit margins & ever-increasing price points. It makes too much sense

I think it would be crazy *not* to expand to a larger iPad size as we move towards a shared Marzipan world w/ tabbed windowing, USB-C & more and more pro-level apps. As a product, I think it ticks all the 'should we do this?' boxes and moves into 'when should we do this?' instead

You could go beyond 15" with iPad, but then you start to need bigger changes to iOS (like a floating keyboard), and current side-by-side sizes become a little ridiculous to have filling the screen height. 15" could be done with iOS as we know it today without things getting weird

15" isn't /that/ much beyond where last year's 12.9" was in body size — that device had a 14.89" diagonal. You could easily house a 14.5" screen with the modern chassis design in a device like that
