Considering we’re almost certainly on the verge of meeting a new iPad or new iPads, we haven’t heard a great deal about Apple’s next generation of tablet-shaped goodness.
Here, a source from out east reckons the iPad Air 2 will land next month, followed by the iPad mini 3 in early 2015. Hmm.
It comes as a bit of a surprise, considering October 2012 saw the dual launch of the iPad 4 and first-generation iPad mini, while the iPad Air and iPad mini 2 (Retina) touched down as a pair in October 2013.
As such, it was widely expected that the inevitable iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 would arrive together next month.
Indeed, this whole thing is uncannily similar to rumours last year that suggested the iPad mini 2 would be delayed on account of its Retina display. That turned out to be nonsense.
And more recently, it was proposed that the iPhone 6 Plus might be months behind the smaller iPhone 6, something that again turned out to be a load of old codswallop.
Yeah, so, you’ll forgive us for taking this with a pinch of salt. For what it’s worth, the sources say an iPad Pro will arrive next year, too. It’s like they have some sort of crystal ball. HOW ARE YOU DOING THIS?
