Rumor Claims Apple will Discontinue iPad mini for the iPad Pro
A new rumor by Economic Daily News says that Apple is planning on discontinuing the iPad mini so they can focus on the iPad Pro. The iPad Pro is rumored to feature the same design as the iPad Air, but feature a 12.9-inch screen. Others say that this may also run OS X.
In the rumor they believe that Apple will stop selling the popular 7.9-inch iPad mini next year. This will make the latest iPad mini 3 the last in Apple’s mini lineup. Now people’s options will be limited to the 9.7-inch iPad Air and even larger 12.9-inch iPad Pro.
To us and many others, this rumors seems far from what Apple would do. There is a big market for 7-inch tablets and the iPad mini is Apple’s take on that area. It’s also a popular device for reading articles and reading books. It was even our favorite Apple product of 2012 when it was first launched.
