You may not see iPad mini in the future

16 May 2017 0

Back in 2012 when Tim Cook and Phil Schiller introduced and gave a detailed insight into the iPad mini, there were no bigger iPhone Plus(es) or any other device that would have put the mini's requirement in jeopardy. It became a smaller and lighter alternative to the then 9.7 inch iPad for effortless web browsing, emailing and gaming. It seemed to be a requirement in the market to fill the position of a product that has a size in between that of a 4-inch and a 9.7-inch device, thus it rocked a 7.9-inch screen.

But, things are different today as the market just doesn’t seem to remain stable. As the bigger phones became the modern trend, the market for the mid-sized tablets shrank dramatically. There simply is no need for a separate product with bigger screen when your phone comes with a huge 5.5-inch display as in iPhone 6 Plus or iPhone 7 Plus.

Your phone is always with you with the best technology, OS, and camera. Hence, nobody wants a separate device to take care of because life is just too busy. Therefore there is a concrete news going on that iPad mini is going to get phased out in the coming future.

A source close to Apple has indicated that the company faces fierce cannibalism of their own products and that the iPad mini has just been “sized out of its own category.” As far as the sales are concerned, it becomes the primary reason for Apple to discontinue its littlest iPad in the line.

However, we can’t say right now if Apple is going to sell the iPad mini for a period of time without any further updates or will pull the plug off the device in near future.
