Apple has a full schedule this fall but it just got fuller as the new Apple iPad entered production.
We are all awaiting for the iPhone 6 to be released in just a couple of weeks from now, on September 9. Maybe more rumors surrounded this model than the previous models combined. The Android smartphone market progressed dramatically since last year. All the major producers released their next generation flagships and the displays got bigger and bigger. But the iPhone 5s, the present day model, sports just a 4 inches display. iPhone 6 will come in two models, a first for Apple. The 4.7 inches model will be accompanied by a 5.5 inches one later in the fall, if we are to believe the rumors. The iPhone 6 production started in July.
So much debate covered the next iPhone that the iPad remained aside for a while. The only notable news referring to the iPad referred to a drop in tablet sales, which is a general trend.
However, Bloomberg declares that sources informed them on the new iPad model. As the information is not public yet, the sources chose to remain anonymous. They told Bloomberg that the new iPad already entered production. The new model will be unveiled by Apple in the last part of this quarter or soon after. A mini iPad will enter production soon as well. The little brother will have the same display dimension, 7.9 inches.
New Apple iPad entered production, encountered problems with new anti-reflection coating
Apple teamed up with IBM recently. The main reason and benefit for Apple will be a subsequent penetration of the business market with its products. Apple bet on something else so far, but is willing to adapt its strategy to increase sales.
Bloomberg states that there are problems in the iPad production. The larger iPad might suffer a launch delay, because of display issues related to a new technology. Apple plans to add a new anti-reflection coating which will make the information displayed on the iPad easier to read.
The new Apple iPad entered production, but there is another device to be launched this fall too. According to a patent application, we could end up calling the new device iTime, but iWatch is a potential alternative. Apple gathered a super team around the new device and this fall might be Apple’s once again. Ultra performant Android devices flooded the market in the last year, so Apple faces stronger competition than ever.
