iPad mini, iPhone 5 with larger screen rumours resurface

Industry insider also spills details of Apple deal with LG Display for future iOS devices

Apple is working on a smaller iPad and plans to increase the screen size of the next iPhone to 4 inches, according to a report.

An "industry insider" who spoke to the Korea Times made reference to an "iPad mini" and the iPhone 5 after approaching the newspaper with details of a new deal between Apple and LG Display concerning displays for future iOS devices.

A meeting between Apple and LG Display is reportedly due to take place in the next few days and one of the topics of conversation will be Apple's plans to introduce a 7.35-inch tablet.

Apple and LG will also apparently discuss displays for the next-generations of iOS devices, though LG declined to comment on the reports and Apple has remained characteristically tight-lipped.

"Next year's iPhone to feature a 4-inch display by LG Display, half an inch larger than the 3.5-inch display and retina display resolution will remain unchanged because LCD is currently being regarded as the right solution to offer value with better cost-cuts," the unnamed executive reportedly told the Korea Times.

An iPad mini has long been rumoured to be in the works - a prototype was apparently even pictured last December, though the image is more than likely a fake.

A 4in screen for the next-generation iPhone is also something we've heard before.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
