Apple plans new inexpensive 9.7-inch iPad for 2018, says sources

Apple пообещала выпустить самый доступный iPad

Apple is considering a new low-cost 9.7-inch iPad priced at around US$259 for 2018, according to sources from related upstream suppliers, which added that the device should be able to attract more demand from price-oriented consumers, allowing Apple to maintain its present 10 million-unit tablet shipments a quarter. The device is expected to launch in the second half of 2018.

In the report, Digitimes states that this new launch will be a bid by Apple to get into the higher-volume and price-conscious markets. Despite the slowdown in the tablet market in recent years, Apple's iPad has maintained its top position as far as sales are concerned. The tech giant will reportedly announce a new version of the regular-sized iPad at a price point of $259 (roughly Rs. 16,700).

(Audio) Body Found In Clay County Believed To Be Sydney Loofe
Bliemeister said there has not been positive confirmation yet that it is Loofe's body, but there is a "strong belief" it is. The FBI, Lincoln police and various county sheriff's offices involved in the search all declined to comment Monday night.

The report does not provide details on whether the $259 iPad will replace or accompany the 2017 9.7-inch iPad. Analysts have also predicted in the past that these markets are the future for Apple products, which is why a cheaper iPad next year could attract more consumers in these markets. But one will have to wait and see if a cheaper iPad will bring anything new to the table.

Apple is planning to launch its most affordable 9.7-inch iPad in 2018, according to a new report. As potential buyers of a budget tablet from Apple referred to as consumers of industrial sector and service sector. In 2017, they rolled out two tablet models - the iPad Pro for the high-end, laptop-rivalling, premium tablet segment and the iPad 2017 for the average tablet user.
