    Default Apple Rumored to Start Next-Gen iPad Production in July and iPad Mini in November


    A recently released report from DigiTimes claims that Apple will begin mass production of the fifth-generation iPad in July or August ahead of a third-quarter launch, while the ramp-up for the next iPad mini has been pushed back to November. Citing sources at Apple’s partner suppliers in Taiwan, DigiTimes is reporting that the redesigned 9.7-inch iPad will see a production window between the months of July and August with initial shipments reaching 5 million units by the end of September.

    The publication noted that Apple’s flagship tablet will see an expected design change with thinner bezels and a slimmer profile bringing it more in line with the current iPad mini. As for the next-generation iPad mini, the sources mentioned that production has been pushed back one month to November, though no reason was given for the delay.

    Market watchers speculate that Apple may be staggering the two product introductions as the mini negatively impacted sales of the full-sized iPad last year. Another theory is that the supply chain can’t meet the original build schedule.

    With the delay, the total number of iPads shipped during 2013 could be lower than earlier forecasts of 80 to 100 million units, with shipment weighing in at 65% for the 9.7-inch iPad and 35% for the iPad mini. There have been a slew of different rumors regarding the upcoming next-gen iPads though with most pointing to major changes in design for the full-sized iPad and the iPad mini receiving a high-resolution display but we’ll ultimately have to wait and see.

    Correct unless they are going to use the new igzod display or what ever it is which uses 90% less power than the current retina display so they wouldn't need as big a battery.

    So tired of them refreshing apple products with little things that make my old iPads seem crappy even though I'm just mad because I don't have the newest and greatest thing from apple. Lol

    Yea I waited till the beginning of April when everyone kept saying March, then they were saying April and now it sounds like it won't be till October or November. That was too long for me since I truly use it everyday for work.

    Yeah that I understand, I would only use it as a fun type thing to have so waiting isn't a big deal for me
