A new report claims that Apple is working on a new 17-Watt power supply for a new product. The new product would require around 40% more wattage than the current iPad, but considerably less power than the 11” MacBook Air. Apple has reportedly started to obtain components for the 17W adapter, which could belong to a “portable product which could launch within the next 12 months.” The report notes that the new adapter would not upgrade any existing Apple products, and it’s possible that such a power supply could be for a new, larger iPad; a July report claimed Apple is testing tablet screens “measuring slightly less than 13 inches,” following rumors of a 12.9” iPad prototype.
