Apple could stop updating the 2012 iPad mini soon

Home  Technology TechnologyWWDC 2017 Release of iOS 11 Rumors Around September By Adity Bera

The design of the new iPad Pro range will be the same as the existing models and Apple are expected to offer the tablets in the same colors as the existing tablets.

Even leaving aside the fact that these reports are unconfirmed, the fate of the iPad Mini is far from certain.

A new report backs up what we've been saying since March: the iPad mini is a dead man walking. The iOS 10.3.2 update is available for the following devices: iPhone 5, iPad mini 2, iPod touch 6th generation and iPad's 4th generation. Faced with their own slight declines in sales for the iPad, Apple is going to be releasing their 10.5-inch iPad Pro in June.

For now, Apple is offering the iPad mini 4 with 128GB for $399 (roughly Rs. 25,500), while the LTE variant is up for grabs for $529 (roughly Rs. 33,800). (NASDAQ:AAPL) rumor mill today is news of the iPad mini line coming to an end.

Senate, where Republicans have a majority. "If there's tapes of this conversation, they need to be turned over". "No, no I didn't, but I don't think it would be a bad question to ask ", he said.

BGR spoke with sources close to Apple that said the iPad mini has been "sized out of its own category" - as many users opt for the larger handsets instead of a small iPad.

The iPad Mini seems to have run its course and the source noted that the sales speak for why Apple would kill it from its product. Perhaps that means the iPad Mini is truly on the way out?

Apple fans are expecting a redesigned iPad Pro later this year which should improve on the current 9.7-inch iPad and a reduced bezel could see it come with a larger display.

People wanted something light so that they could carry it around. We can only praise Apple, and the tech sector in general, for continuing to work towards better accessibility every day. If the company can continue to grow sales of those devices, then the iPad business could return to growth. Apple Watch sales almost doubled year-on year, while the new Airpods saw demand significantly exceeding supply.
