All-New Apple iPad Air & iPad Mini Announced

Here is what Apple has been working on all this time.

While Statista's report made a decision to see the glass as half empty, I see the glass as being half full because the chart tells me that Apple's last three years of iPad sales have stabilized to it's likely realistic market size that's sustainable.

Monday's big event is about Apple's new focus: Services.

Apple announced two Apple iPad product this month with one of them being the 10.5 inch iPad Air and a new iPad Mini. Since it's no longer in production, Amazon has dropped the price to its lowest point ever, presumably to help clear out the inventory. It comes equipped with an A10X Fusion chip, plus a Retina display with ProMotion for smoother scrolling and True Tone for better color representation. As long as Apple's iPad sales stay above the 53 million mark, shareholders should be pleased until the next major iPad refresh with multiple new features. However, the new devices don't seem to have flat sides and magnetic edges, which are needed to hold Apple Pencil when not used.

Even if you really like these older products and don't care about new processors, features or screen sizes, just wait.

Depending on how you configure your computer and which size you want, the price of the new iMacs ranges from $1,299 to $5,878.

This week Apple introduced some faster iPad models.

The iPad mini and Mini Air come in silver, space grey and gold finishes in 64GB and 256GB configurations. A few other iPad models are also on sale now, so let's take a look at the deals.

Next week at a special "Show Time" event, Apple is expected to announce its TV streaming service, which would compete with the likes of Netflix and Hulu.
