Start counting your pennies Apple fans! Rumor has it that the new iPad 5 is coming in April. And not only will your pockets be lighter. The new version is said to be thinner and weigh less. The iPad Mini 2 could also make its debut in April. But a retina screen doesn’t appear to be in the immediate future, so we’ll see on that one.
And the iPhone 5S could be on its way in August.
“Sources familiar with the plans have told iMore that the iPhone 5S does indeed have the same basic design as the iPhone 5, with a more advanced processor and an improved camera,” reports iMore (h/t Business Insider). TechCrunch says the iPad needs a kid mode. Parents care to chime in on that one?
Just a couple of weeks ago, news broke that Apple was being sued in Brazil for having one too many launches in one year, rendering the devices purchased first “not-quite-the-newest.” It feels like some time has passed since we’ve had a good, old fashioned Apple launch, so maybe we’re due for one. But then there’s the question of demand.
VentureBeat explores the question of why iPad display shipments dropped by half in January. It’s either because something new is coming or people are buying the iPad Mini instead of the big’un.
One thing’s for sure: We pay a lot of attention to Apple.
