9.7–inch iPad

The cheap­est iOS de­vice will be due a re­vamp in 2019… won’t it?

Mac|Life - - FEATURE -

Amid a flurry of new fea­tures at higher prices, 2018’s high point for bar­gain– hunt­ing Ap­ple fans was March’s $329 iPad. It’s Ap­ple’s only 9.7–inch tablet, so an ob­vi­ous 2019 tweak would be to bump it up to 10.5–inches.

One way for Ap­ple to achieve that would be to sub­sti­tute the lame–duck 10.5–inch iPad Pro, with its su­pe­rior screen, A10X chip, and cam­eras. But given that model starts at $649, it’s not likely to drop far enough to be­come the new en­try level.

Our bet is that the 9.7–inch iPad stays for an­other year, but maybe there’s room be­low the $799 11–inch iPad.
