Apple might be getting ready to release a brand new iPad in 2018 and it may well be the most affordable ever, if resources within Asian provide networks turn out proper.
The phrase comes by way of DigiTimes and its resources, which might be pegged as "similar upstream providers", so remember that we suggest you stay a salt shaker at hand. Nevertheless, it is a compelling thought neatly value maintaining a tally of, because the file claims Apple will worth the brand new 9.7in iPad at an insignificant $259.
In March 2017, Apple introduced what used to be then the most affordable iPad so far, some other 9.7in sized version for the brand new yr with a ticket of $329. Subsequent yr's type appears to be like to undercut that beginning RRP moderately considerably.
Is that this merely some other signal of the declining tablet marketplace, or is Apple onto some roughly artful trick right here?
The resources cross on so as to add that Apple's plans for a release position it within the second one quarter of 2018, in order that's between April and June. At the moment there are not any clues about specifications of options, however we suspect with a purpose to succeed in that lower cost level it may not be as characteristic wealthy as current Apple tablet units.
