With Apple releasing new MacBooks and the iPhone 7 family, iPad users have been feeling like their needs have been forgotten. Take heart since Apple is expected to release three new iPad Pros in the second quarter of 2017. Both the 12.9-inch and 10 to 10.5 inch models are expected to feature the same A10 processor as the iPhone 7, while the 9.7-inch model will have an A9 processor, but will comprise between 50% and 60% of total iPad Pro shipments.From release/information:
Apple Inc. (AAPL) is set to launch three new iPads next quarter in different form factors, according to Ming-Chi Quo, a respected Apple analyst. His report, which was first cited by 9to5Mac, claims that the Cupertino, Calif.-based company will introduce iPads in three sizes: 12.9-inch, between 10 and 10.5 inches, and 9.7-inch.
The largest size iPad, which is the company's latest installment of its iPad Pro, will feature the A10 processor that was installed in the iPhone 7. The 10-inch version will have the same processor and will incorporate a narrow bezel design. According to Kuo, this version of the iPad will be in demand from enterprise and "tender" markets. (Apple has inked agreements with corporate partners for sale of iPads.) Finally, the 9.7-inch version will have an A9 processor but will be the biggest contributor to iPad sales, with a share of between 50% and 60% of total iPad shipments.
