Is the Bigger Apple Tablet Reaching you Anytime Soon?
It’s almost mid-June and there isn’t a bustle regarding the launch of Apple’s promising product – the 12-inch tablet. No announcement has been yet made regarding its name nor have its features and specifications been openly shared. Indeed, at the recently concluded WWDC, there wasn’t even a slight mention of this device and what stole the limelight were the iOS 9 features.
Nonetheless, for all you Apple fans, and specifically the ones who’ve been eagerly waiting for this bigger iPad to launch – here’s something to keep you engaged.
We’ve captured below for you interesting facts about this Apple tablet. Browse through them to understand how you’d get to enjoy its features, once the product starts retailing…
- Speculations are rife that this tablet could either be named iPad Pro, iPad Air Plus or simply iPad Plus.
- It could feature a display of 12.2 inch to 12.9 inch screen.
- Its other specifications include 700g weight, 7mm in thickness, and a resolution of 2000 dpi.
- To keep it powered on, it will sport a 11000mAH battery
- For enhanced audio quality as compared to its predecessor, the iPad Plus will have a speaker atop the device.
- It will also be equipped with a rear-facing camera, a mic, lightning connector, and volume rocker.
- A slight deviation may be witnessed here too. Rather than the usual iOS operating system, this new iPad could be seen flaunting the OS X Yosemite. If it does, it will directly enter the league of hybrid devices, where big names such as Microsoft are already fighting to claim turf.
- For non-stop performance, the device could be fitted with the new A9 processor, the advanced version of A8X processor that was featured with iPad Air 2.
These are all fine features to learn about and wait to explore with bated breath, if you may. However, there isn’t denying to the fact that there is definitely some vision and connection between what Apple may foresee as usage and popularity of the product and the delayed launch.
To start off, a bigger iPad would mean price rise. While currently as per the market trend, tablets aren’t being viewed anymore as a much-required gadget, unless of course it is to be used for light computing tasks. So, the iPad Plus would presently not find as many buyers as probably the iPhone would fetch the company as people are looking at more compact devices with advanced technology set in it. At the same time, people who would want to view more content on their screens would want to go ahead with the new iPad, but probably this section would be mid-sized in very high probability. To substantiate this observation, Apple’s sales history for the last quarter is enough – 70 percent of its last quarter revenue, which was $58 billion, came from iPhone alone. Only 8 percent came in from iPad.
Again, this isn’t the entire story! As far as Apple’s technology or its vision of presenting a device goes, it isn’t certainly questionable. So, perhaps the delayed launch and keeping the product strictly under wraps would work for it. When the brand will launch it at what they feel is the right time, perhaps the trends would change and make the conditions favorable for the bigger iPad to not just thrive but also excel with its advanced technology and features.
