Apple is due to launch new iPads within the next few months and the number of rumours about the new tablets continue to grow. The latest report comes from KGI Securities Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has slightly revised his predictions for the new tablet.
Kuo predicts that Apple will release three tablets in 2017, including a high-end model that will feature a display size between 10 and 10.5-inches. The analyst predicts that the other two models will be identical in size to Apple’s current offering at 9.7 and 12.9-inches.
The new 10-10.5-inch iPad Pro is said to be a high-end model with a narrow bezel design, and it’s expected to be powered by Apple’s new A10x processor. The new model is also expected to feature upgraded internal hardware.
Kuo also believes that the number of iPads shipped in 2017 will drop to around 35-37 million units. The drop won’t necessarily be due to consumers losing interest in the iPad, but it will be a continuation of a steady decline in the global tablet market.
Apple is expected to reveal its new lineup of iPad models around March.
