Rumor has it that the iPad Pro will have production problems with the screen
Although Apple has not yet confirmed or denied anything, everything seems to point to the fact that they could soon present a new tablet model with a 12.9-inch screen, which we know on the net as the iPad Pro. Now there are new rumors about it in which they say that the company might be having trouble producing the screen .
This information has been published by the KGI Values analyst named Ming-Chi Kuo. According to him, the mass production of the iPad Pro would be delayed until the second quarter of 2015 .
In preparing this report, it has taken into account various data provided by its sources that say that Apple plans to use a new panel that will make its new tablet have a higher resolution , higher color saturation and a much faster tactile response. However, this decision would have caused Cupertino’s guys to have trouble producing it.
The iPad Pro will take longer than expected
If the data provided by Ming-Chi Kuo are true, the previous rumors that spoke of the possibility of the U.S. company starting production of the iPad Pro in December in order to launch it in early 2015 would be disproved. But according to this report, would need more time than they had originally planned .
At the moment, not much is known about this mysterious iPad Pro. According to previous rumours, would have a 12.2 or 12.9 inch screen , would have a special version of the A8X chip to offer greater performance and its thickness would be only 7 millimetres, thinner than the iPhone 6 Plus.
On the other hand, the analyst comments in the report how he expects the sales of the iPad to be in the near future. Thus, says that global sales of Apple’s tablet will fall by 54.5% in the first quarter of next year alone , which would mean that they would not sell 10 million units.
However, this information is hard to believe, especially considering that the company announced in its tax report that they had sold a total of 16,350,000 iPads during the last quarter, one of their worst recorded figures.
The iPad Pro could be your lifeline
Ming-Chi Kuo comments that this decrease in sales is mainly due to the high saturation of the tablet market at the moment, but it would also have to do with the lack of new applications or uses that can be given to it. However, he believes that the iPad Air 2 could record good sales during the coming year, although he will have to fight hard to achieve this.
From CultofMac they point out that the new iPad Pro and its large screen could cope with this lack of new applications, thanks to new special features such as the split-screen mode it is believed to incorporate. Whatever the case, we have to keep waiting until 2015 to see if this device finally becomes a reality or if it’s just a piece of cake.
Do you think the iPad Pro could boost sales of Cupertino’s tablet again?
