As reported by the analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will launch three new iPads next year, including a 9.7 - inch iPad inexpensive, an updated iPad Pro 12.9 inches and a new variant of the iPad Pro 10.5 inches.
But the analyst, really big changes are planned for 2018.
2018 is the year in which the analyst says Apple iPads revolutionary updates, which include a "radical" change in the aesthetic factor, as well as the inclusion of an AMOLED screen devices.
Because it is expected that the iPhone received a major upgrade next year and that Apple tends to introduce many of its technologies in the iPhone before applying them to its line of iPads, it seems that the Cupertino company will seek to unify the appearance and characteristics both iOS product lines in 2018, after the next update anniversary of the iPhone.
Meanwhile, three new iPads for 2017 are certainly exciting news. Interestingly, Ming-Chi Kuo said that the 10.5 - inch iPad Pro could be more directed to "commercial and educational markets", which might make sense as this is a business area iPad Cupertino company, where demand is growing, while it is reduced elsewhere.
Kuo believes that both models of iPad Pro 10.5 and 12.9 inches A10X include the Apple processor, which supposedly TSMC will manufacture its 16nm technology. Meanwhile, the 9.7-inch iPad, lower-end, include the A9X processor, which will also be manufactured by TSMC.
Interestingly, there is no mention of the iPad mini 7.9 inch, which could possibly be removed from the product line to avoid direct competition with the larger models of Apple's smartphone.
