It looks as if Apple may be tapping Quanta Computer as the next producer of their rumored product, the iPad Max. Digitimes is reporting that Quanta Computer is ramping up their facilities, the device is expected to launch in the second half of 2014.
There seem to be issues though with the fact that their current tooling would not be able to handle the new product that Apple would most likely need. They are the largest supplier of notebooks in the world, including for Apple.
Quanta is expected to encounter several challenges in terms of industrial design and assembly when making the large-size iPad. And since the size is not the mainstream specification, order volumes are expected to be limited, sources say.
This rumor seems to be somewhat believable but only time will tell.
