The new rumors from the Apple’s Asian supply chain suggest that Apple will use Taiwan-based Quanta Computer to produce its jumbo iPad and the "iWatch".

Quanta is rumored to already have won the bid for the giant iPad, but that the competition for the new wearable iWatch is ongoing between Quanta, Foxconn and Inventec.

The rumors about the 2014 launch of Apple's 12.9 inches iPad are coming from DigiTimes. They have been circulating for a while, but the time of possible launch varies.

Supply chain reports that Apple is planning to launch the "iWatch" during the second quarter of the next year and that pilot production is underway already. The same report claims that Apple is not satisfied by product’s low yields, which is the reason for the delay of its mass production by a few months. The "iWatch" is supposed to have a range of biometric sensors, showing that its focus is on health and fitness. Ming-Chi Kuo, a respected analyst, expects to see the "iWatch" in stores next year during the second half.

Quanta is supposed to have some challenging issues with the 12.9-inch iPad, both with its assembly and design. The biggest obstacle is the screen which is not the "mainstream specification." The new 12.9-inch iPad has been nicknamed "iPad Pro."
