The Cupertino house could launch its next tablet in three different sizes, one of which is unpublished
coming a ship loaded with iPad in 2017. If the forecasts of the analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reported by MacRumors are correct, Apple could launch well next year three new models of his tablet: the classic 9.7-inch one, an update of the iPad Pro introduced last year with a diagonal of the 12.9-inch display, and an unusual intermediate size with 10.5-inch screen.
Unlike what happened this year, the most compact tablet of the three will also be less powerful and expensive than the others. While the model from 9.7 inches launched this spring boasts the Pro label, the successor planned for next year should arrive on the market with the same A9X processor as the current generation, remaining one step behind the bulky tablets launched at its side: the 10.5 and 12.9 inch iPad in fact they will be equipped with an A10X chip, an evolution of the A10 which, however, still have to see the light on board of the iPhone that will be presented in a few weeks.
What will happen instead to the current Mini line, whose last specimen dates back almost a year ago? There are two possible reasons why Ming-Chi Kuo does not mention compact tablets: it does not have enough data to make forecasts about it, or it is precisely this, that the variant has been temporarily set aside to meet the demand for tablets in It can also work as a computer, with spacious screens and dockable keyboards.
