Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) Might Launch Three New iPads Next Week

Initially, iPad Mini 5 was expected to be launched at Apple's September 2016 event because its predecessor, Apple iPad Mini 4 was released in the same month of the previous year. Expected initial shipments of the new 10.5-inch iPad are likely to reach one million units and are expected to increase up to 1.2 million units a month from the second quarter.

The 12.9 inch model doesn't have many features that the 9.7 inch unit has, such as True Tone display, broader LTE support, wide color gamut and better camera quality.

iPhone SE 2: It is rumoured that Apple may launch a new iPhone SE with upgraded storage. The device could even be dubbed the 9.7-inch "iPad Pro 2", according to the report, and will embody the 2nd generation of Apple's current 9.7-inch iPad Pro.

Consider the current round of rumors regarding the iPad (s) that Apple is expected to unveil as early as next week, according to MacRumors.

Apple may also releasew iPad models, according to analytics firm Fiksu.

The iPad Pro 2017 will be allegedly launched with a low-priced model and a 10.5-inch model.

Apple's new 10.5-inch iPad is rumored to have a bezel-free edge-to-edge display and with the same body size as the existing 9.7-inch iPad Pro.

Analysts from an unnamed research firm (anonymity requested) claimed earlier this week that Apple could launch new products as early as next week, between Monday March 20 and Friday March 24, 2017. However, as it does every time a new model hits the market, Apple is likely to drop prices on its current models, respectively, which will give the new model a bit of room to establish itself as a viable choice amidst a sea of iPads.

After a long wait and no official word from Apple, fans of the Cupertino-based company might soon be seeing a new iPad model.

In October, reports suggested that Apple would be launching its three new iPad devices in March 2017. One rumor based its April 4 estimate on the Personal Pickup timeline for the 12.9-inch variant of the new iPad Pro, but that date is also fluid, now showing April 10 as the pickup date. Additionally, the 10.5 inch variant is said to come with an edge-to-edge display which will feature very slim top and bottom bezels. The 9.7-inch iPad Pro, meanwhile, is also due for a refresh, DigiTimes claims.
