Ming-Chi Kuo, the renowned analyst at KGI Securities, has issued a new report to its investors, which 9to5Mac has been made, appropriately, with a copy.
In the new report, Ming-Chi Kuo talks about Apple’s plans for its line of iPads, and he reports that the Californian firm plans to launch three new iPads during the first half of 2017, one of them with frames narrower:
“The new models will come in versions of 12.9″, 10-10.5 “and 9.7” . We note that the model of 12.9 “will be the second generation of the existing iPad Pro 12.9” model 10-10.5 “will be a high – end model equipped with a design closer frames , and 9.7 “model will be the cheap option. The first two models will have an A10X chip manufactured by TSMC (2330 TT, NT $ 183.5, N), while the latter will come with an A9 chip manufactured by Samsung L SI. Although we estimate that iPad sales in 2017 will decline again from the previous year, to 35-37 million units, we expect the decline to be 10% compared to 20% in 2016, since the model Of 10-10.5 “will see increased commercial and corporate demand and bidding markets, while the cheap 9.7” model could fetch more sales and could report 50-60% of total sales. New iPads “.
It is not the first time we get the rumor that Apple could launch a new iPad size, although according to some sources will be 10.5 inches and other 10.9 inches. According to Kuo, this will be the high – end model, which should not surprise us, since, according to rumors, it could be a model with very low marks, and would have no Home button.
Macotakara also predicted a few months ago that Apple would launch three iPads in the spring of this year, although they differed in size, according to them, would be 7.9 inches, 10.5 inches, and 12.9 inches.
