As we approach the month of March, probably when we see new iPads that Apple will launch this year, increasing the speculation about the new model of tablet, which the company will launch this year. In addition to renew the existing, 12.9 and 9.7 inch models, experts say that Apple will launch a new model, with a different to the current design, and whose screen size ranges from 10 to 10.9 inches if we listen to all the rumors that exist on the network. Today is a new report that narrow the range, ensuring that the new “top range” iPad will have a size between 10 and 10.5 inches.
Our “friend” and well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, ensures that Apple will be releasing a brand new iPad with a screen size that will be a maximum up to 10.5 inches, but that could be only in 10, and that it will feature specifications “top” of the range, alongside the iPad Pro 12.9 inches, as for example the processor A10X manufactured by TSMC. This 10-inch model will have a new design with more narrow frames. It will be another iPad’s 9.7 inches, which remain as entry model and will take the A9 processor manufactured by Samsung, and whose price will be more affordable than the previous two.
With this renewal Kuo hopes that the fall in sales of the iPad is less in 2017 that during 2016, staying only in a decrease in sales of 10% (in 2016 was 20%). The iPad and the iPhone are based on very different positions. While the latter broke sales records recently and has started its fall, which is interpreted as “apocalyptic” for many despite getting astronomical figures that no manufacturer or even can dream, the Apple tablet already stringing several quarters of continuous fall is in a low position because any decrease in sales fall is interpreted as a good thing. Despite all we can forget that the iPad is still the best-selling tablet worldwide.
