Here's How Apple Can Revolutionize The iPad
Apple's much awaited 2017 Worldwide Developers Conference is fast approaching in, with that comes the excitement of finally finding out what the tech giant has been cooking. It is expected that Apple will launch new operating systems and software. There are also rumors that Apple will unveil some hardware with its own Siri smart speaker and a new line-up of iPads leading the way.
The most hyped tablet that is expected to be announced at the Apple event is the 10.5-inch version which sits smack in the middle of the existing 9.7-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro variants. According to Phone Arena, there are four possible new Apple tablets coming real soon. This rumor came from Consomac, a French website, which spotted a regulatory approval involving four different tablet PCs. The leak indicated that the four tablets, A1670, A1671, A1701, and A1709, are running on iOS 10. Furthermore, another device labeled A1843 points to a possible wireless keyboard by Apple.
Despite the many rumors of an upcoming iPad Pro, the tablet industry is still under the doldrums because of its not-so-impressive market. CNET listed down a few things that Apple can do with its next tablets for them to be successful.
First, Apple should do its tablet line a favor by going with the trend of slim bezels. Tablets are notorious for their large bezels and with the introduction of bezel-less displays in smartphones, it is just logical to adapt the technology in tablets.
The iPad Pro will also be better if it has more accessories. Imagine a tablet capable of supporting different modular accessories similar to how Moto Mods work with the Moto Z Play and other Motorola handsets.
Another way for Apple to revolutionize the iPad is to completely change its interface. The iPad's main screen and dock tries too hard to look like that of the iPhone. Apple should utilize the iPad's huge screen to display more than the five by four grid of apps that it currently displays. iPad owners should be able to customize their tablets starting from the startup menu and the interface's layout.
Speaking of apps, the next iPad should have more and even better apps. The current selection is in fact already impressive but with the changing of the times, more and improved apps are sprouting like mushrooms.
