Apple iPad Stylus Rumors
A rumored Apple iPad stylus could point toward business ambitions, bigger tablets. Find out more about it here.
Apple co-founder Steve Jobs didn’t like the idea of a stylus for mobile devices, famously decrying, “if you see a stylus, they [the developer] blew it.” The post-Jobs Apple may have a different view on the stylus, according to one analyst.
Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities says Apple is likely to release a ipad stylus in the spring to complement the long-rumored “iPad Pro,” a purported 12.9-inch slate. Kuo, who is reputed to have deep contacts within Apple’s supply chain, based his analysis on Apple’s patent filings and his own research, according to Apple Insider.

Why this matters: Although Kuo’s report is well within the “rumor zone,” an Apple-made stylus isn’t all that crazy and doesn’t seem impossible for even the 9.7-inch iPad. We’ve been reviewing styluses for Apple’s tablet for almost as long as there’s been an iPad. Clearly, there’s a desire among at least some users to put pen to glass. Also, the iPad has always been a popular device for the workplace, where greater amounts of handwriting or drawing may occur. The iPad’s popularity as a business device is poised to grow along with its computing power. Apple’s partnership with IBM to build enterprise-specific apps is also likely to increase the iPad’s presence in the corporate world.
