The online world is flooding with articles about the iPhone 8, iPhone X, the iPad Pro and Macbook 2017 Pro. Seldom do we hear reports about the Mini Tablet that Apple once took pride of. Today, a new report surfaced online claiming that the Cupertino-based tech giant will no longer continue producing the iPad Mini.

The latest trend in the market

In 2012, Apple introduced the iPad Mini. During that time, the device offered an alternative to the heavier and bulkier 9.7-inch iPad. Apart from that, it is a better option for users who prefer seamless web surfing, gaming, reading, and email.

However, the market trend is unstable. As several tech giants vie for the top spot in the market, new concepts are embraced and technological enhancements are applied. What appears to be the best thing in 2015 is deemed obsolete by some companies nowadays.

Indeed, innovation is the name of the game in the tech industry. Companies who fail to innovate are left biting the dust, and those who spend time on research and product development reap the glory and leadership in the industry. Right now, the Cupertino-based tech giant is already consumed in rooting for the redesigned 9.7-inch and 10.5-inch iPad Pro. Moreover, the company is also gearing to release the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus. The device has the right size and perfect specs, features, and much more that can satiate the industry of tablet devices.

As the trend slowly shifts, Apple, in order to keep up, needs to innovate. And the speculations about the company dropping the mini might be a good move to cut cost and to ensure market leadership in the arena of tablet devices.

One reputable analyst from KGI Securities, Ming-Chi Kuo even released a report claiming that there is a 70 percent chance that the other variant of the 2017 iPad will be unveiled during the event.

Kuo has a proven track record of predicting the specs, features, and even the release date and price of numerous Apple devices in the past. In fact, his reports are usually used as the basis of several tech reports discussing future products from various companies.

As usual, the Cupertino-based tech conglomerate has been tight-lipped about these recent speculations. On our end, we will publish more updates about the WWDC 2017 event, the iPad Mini, the 10.5-inch iPad Pro, as well as the potential product launches as soon as information becomes available.
