Apple is getting closer to announcing its annual iPad upgrade. It usually takes place alongside the iPhone launch that takes place in the month of September. It is the reason we have started hearing whispers about the future plans that Apple has A fresh report from Digitimes claims that Apple is considering using titanium-finish for future iPad models.
The report reveals that the next-gen entry-level iPad i.e. iPad 9 will not feature major design changes. It will largely be the same as the current-generation iPad model. The major difference will be the use of the material which is reported to be titanium. It is said that Apple is hoping that this move would help it boost iPad shipment numbers. It is aiming to ship as many as 60 million units this year.
It is important to note that while using titanium build for iPad is expected to bring a number of benefits, it also has one important drawback. It is related to the economic standpoint which is the reason Apple has not opted for it yet. This is the reason it is not confirmed whether Apple will actually implement it with the upcoming iPad models.
Here is what the report said,
"The new iPad will also equip with aluminum-alloy chassis that will be processed by PVD. The sources also revealed that Apple is also considering equipping iPads with titanium-based."
As for what to expect from the iPad 9, Apple is said to pack it with a faster processor. It will continue with the Touch ID integrated within the Home button. There are not many differences in the sight for the next-gen offering.
