Interestingly, certain analysts believe that Apple’s hope to gain its plunging market shares in the tab market could be pinned down to the release of iPad Mini 2 and the iPad 5.
Apple’s earlier shipment for tabs went down from 229.3 million to 227.4 million units, which is speculated to be the firm’s move to build anticipation among consumers for its upcoming iPad 5 and iPad Mini 2. However, the decision to increase the sales of tabs in the Q4 this year has rather affected the company’s market share.
Nevertheless, as per some reports, Apple’s shipment of tabs has increased by 60 percent since 2012, when it first launched the iPad.
Apple has always been a leader in the tab market, giving its rivals a tough time.
The Cupertino Calif.-based firm is expected to launch its upcoming iPad 5 with more power and expertise, packed in a slim and light body with the new iOS 7. The device thus contains the power to revamp consumer’s interest in the tab all over again.
With Retina Display and faster processing chips, the iPad Mini 2 will be a cheaper version that will come in competition with other cheaper Android devices in the market.
