iPad mini Q2 Shipments Reduced: iPad mini 2 Launch In The Cards?
iPad mini became one of the most popular 7-inch tablets after its launch in October 2012. But, according to a recent report, Apple has cut down shipments of the tablet, which may indicate that the next-generation iPad mini is on its way.
According to a DigiTimes report, Apple is set to cut shipments of the iPad mini in the second quarter of 2013. The report indicates that Apple will reduce shipments by 20 percent in April, with steeper cuts following in the remainder of the second quarter.
"The decrease may be as high as 20% on month during April, the sources noted, and may continue to slightly decrease throughout the quarter to bring total shipments of the iPad mini to as low as 10 million units during the quarter," reports DigiTimes.
DigiTimes also says "Apple recently adjusted shipment estimates for its iPad and iPad mini products in 2013 to 33 million and 55 million, respectively, said the sources."
The 7.9-inch iPad mini has captured a major chunk of the 7-inch tablet industry. The iPad mini features impressive features that appeal to many tablet buyers. However, many observers have criticized Apple for keeping the price of the tablet at a premium level and not including the Retina display.
As per various rumors, the next-generation iPad mini will have a Retina display, a better processor and will be sleeker and lighter than the current version.
The iPad mini has an A5 processor and an upgrade to Retina display will mean that the tablet may also have a powerful processor to support the higher resolution.
It has been about six months since the iPad mini made its appearance and according to speculations, Apple will launch a refreshed version of the tablet within the next few months.
