As we have already seen in several posts of iPadizate, sales of various Apple gadgets run quite mixed fortunes: while the iPhone 7 rampaging unmitigated, can not say the same - with permission from Tim Cook , of course - the Apple Watch which succumbs to the 5th place of wearables according to consultancy IDC. Also, Apple iPad sales continues to decline and it looks like the new iPad Pro model, which is expected to launch during the first half of 2017, will follow the same downward trend.
According to the suppliers of the components of the manufacturing chain cases, demand for chips continues to decrease, so Apple itself estimates that during this 2016 that is already running will not come to sell 40 million units and down.
This is all most alarming way in a time like this, because it is at Christmas when Apple reaps its biggest sales on your tablet iPad, that yes, remains undisputed industry leader . And is that in previous years Apple sold on the planet up to an iPad per second.
The information comes from Digitimes, a website with less fame than McOtara for example, but that is usually quite reliable sources regarding the chain of manufacturers, who also notes that not expected a significant increase in orders until 2018.
A very uncertain future in a rapidly changing as the technology world. They are the first specialists in pointing this alarmingly decreasing trend, coming to confirm what in his day said Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI, estimating a drop of around 10 or even 20% during 2017.
It seems that even the news as a more powerful processor or the absence of Home button on a screen without bezels boost sales. They may be the new iPad 2018 with its revolutionary AMOLED technology which will definitely attract buyers.
