14.1-inch iPad Pro No Longer Rumored for 2023
Apple is no longer planning to launch a 14.1-inch iPad Pro with a mini-LED display in early 2023, a shift from plans earlier in the year.
In June, reliable display analyst Ross Young reported that a 14.1-inch iPad Pro with a mini-LED display was slated to launch in the first quarter of 2023. Now, Young says Apple is no longer planning to launch the new 14.1-inch form factor. Young suggests the device has been canceled entirely or significantly delayed. In July, Ross followed-up to say the device could feature a LCD display instead of mini-LED.
A 14.1-inch iPad Pro would have been the largest iPad to date, beating the current 12.9-inch size. The development of a larger-sized iPad Pro was first shared by Bloomberg's Mark Gurman in June 2021. Gurman said Apple engineers were looking into the possibility of larger iPad Pro sizes that could "hit stores a couple of years down the road at the earliest."

Rinse and repeat.
We get the absolute dumpster fire abortion of Stage Manager that barely functions and has a tiny niche use case for maybe 8/100 people, but we can't get a larger battery (because thinner is unfortunately an obsession), better Files management, an ACTUAL SSH CLIENT, Xcode, Apple's Final Cut suite, move the FaceID and Camera to Landscape, and Lock Screen manipulation.
I am so ready for a 14" iPad, put one on my wall in my kitchen for HomeKit management as well as doubling as a wall TV. My 12.9 is wonderful for this usage, as well as my other 12.9 I use for Work, but I am so ready for a larger screen size.
Mouse and Keyboard just no longer interest me, I am always Full Screen with my apps and swiping and typing on the screen is a dream. 14.1" I would buy three just to start.
Next day: actually I take that back. Forget that thing I said
