The anti-glare/matte display you love may be en route for the next generation of iPads. Per The Mac Observer and Bloomberg, sources have claimed that a 9.7-inch iPad is in production and a 7.9-inch iPad will enter production later this year, both with an anti-glare coating that cuts down on glare.

Sources stated that Apple is going with a non-glare display for easier reading. They also said initial availability may be limited when the new iPad ships because of production issues related to the anti-glare coating.

Apple hasn’t dropped any hints about what to expect from the next iPad refresh — or when to expect an announcement. The company has shifted to fall iPad launches, so it’s likely we’ll see new models in time for the holiday buying season.


Sources have tagged September 9 for a special media event where Apple will introduce updated iPhone models with larger displays. Apple hasn’t confirmed the event yet, or said if it plans to make any announcements about the iPad or the rumored iWatch.

Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
