Apple fans who expect the iPad Pro’s biggest offering will have to wait until September of this year. Display manufacturers’ troubles will prevent it from entering the market in the first or second quarter of this year.
The iPad Pro is one of the longest-running Apple products. The first mention of the new tablet model with a much larger screen appeared in 2013. Since then, there have been no official information about it, and only web leaks suggesting that we will be dealing with a product that has at least a 12.9-inch screen.
Recently, something about the iPad Pro has started and reports have suggested that the product may appear early this year. The latest reports, however, say that the launch of hardware can only be postponed until September. All through the troubles of display manufacturers such as Sharp, LG and Japan Display. These companies are experiencing difficult times and their shares have recently lost value.
For Apple, it has to be frustrating, especially since the iPad sales have fallen sharply lately, and analysts are predicting further degradation in the future if the company does not do something about it. This is due to new market trends that make consumers prefer larger smartphones instead of smaller tablets.
