According to a report released to investors, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is set and ready for the development of the new iPads which will be released throughout this year. However, despite the Apple mini, 7.9-Inch being last updated in 2015, none of these iPads are mini devices.
Although it has been long since Apple has made any update, or any attempt to launch a new mini-model of their iPads, the company has been focusing on the development and improvement of almost every other product, which they are known to sell.
More details about the iPads being released throughout this year
Throughout the report, details of the three iPads, which the company intends to release throughout 2017 were disclosed. The first of which, is simply an updated product, of the 12.9-Inch iPad Pro. The new design is expected to be roughly 10-inches.
Furthermore, allegedly, there will also be a cheaper variation of the same model, which is slightly smaller than that of the original model, at around 9.7-inch, smaller, but nowhere near classified as a mini-device.
In an official statement, on the report, it was stated, “We note the 12.9” model will be the second generation of the existing 12.9” iPad Pro, the 10-10.5” model will be the high-end model equipped with a narrow Bezel-design, and the 9.7” model will be the low-priced option.”
What can be expected of these iPad models
Besides the size, it is expected that the company will have enhanced the hardware, and software on the devices, for better user interaction and performance. However, in the report, the company did not disclose the anticipated price for the three models.
The same report, also revealed that the company expects a large portion of their total annual shipments, to derive from the sales of the three iPads which they will be launching. According to the report, almost 50 percent of all shipments, are anticipated to be between these three models.
