10_10 wins?!.....Apple may be releasing two 10" iPads....

.....a 10.2" 7th gen iPad.....and a new 10.5" without the 'Pro' branding name.....


.....the new one without the 'Pro' branding could fit in nicely in price gap......



Apple Planning Both 10.2-Inch 'iPad 7' and All-New 10.5-Inch iPad According to Proven Leaker

......Throwing a wrench into rumors, the previously accurate Twitter account CoinX today claimed that Apple plans to release not only a 10.2-inch seventh-generation iPad, but also an entirely new 10.5-inch iPad without Pro branding. The tablets will not be released simultaneously, according to the tweet.

Both iPad 7 (10.2”) and the “new” iPad (10.5”, non-Pro) are coming. But not at the same time.
— CoinX (@coiiiiiiiin) March 13, 2019

If accurate, Apple could perhaps be planning to release a slightly scaled back version of the existing 10.5-inch iPad Pro, which could allow it to fill a price point between the $329 lower-end iPad and the $799 and up 2018 iPad Pro models.

CoinX has an accurate track record, having previously tweeted the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR names of the 2018 iPhones before anyone else, in addition to the 2018 iPad Pro being 5.9mm thick and a few minor details about other Apple products. It is unclear where the information is sourced from.



you will now have....two...10" of fun......?!

I am confused about how many iPad models are available these days, especially when you can find last year models on sale too.

Same thing with Apple Watch, about a year ago you could buy the original (Series 0), then Series 1 and Series 3.

What space-time said. The confusion is purposeful, I would say, so as not to dissuade the general consumer from avoiding older models.

I'd say it's similar to how the auto industry does it, but there's better consumer knowledge of that; i.e., you would almost automatically ask (if it's not shown) what model year vehicle you were looking at. It's typically the first question, assuming it's not shown plainly.

I'd love to see that as part of the standard naming platform -- e.g., iPad 10 (2019) -- but there's a quagmire of problems in adapting even something that simple.

A new, unbendable 10.5" w/ at least 128GB for under $499 would be cause for pause. Probably get rid of last gen 9.7" 32GB regular 'pad in favor thereof. Scored 12.9" v.2, 256GB + LTE for $630 after xmas to work w/ grandfathered $10/mo tablet cell plan. Almost totally awesome; only drawback is it's kinda heavy in its case... weight naked is about right, but as soon as it gets dressed up, I wanna put it on a diet. But at least it doesn't bend. 10.5" might allow for less schlepping of 12.9".

Now how 'bout more news on new Macs??/

As am I. This is the exact reason one of the first things Steve did upon returning to Apple was simplify Apple's product offerings.

Old lessons learned are being forgotten at Apple.



It is what it is.

Paid $450 for our 2017 10.5" iPP. Only 64 GB, but its sweet. *everything* is better vs regular iPads. Screen, scrolling, speed, speakers.

Eli Manning is #10, and he's won the Super Bowl twice, and IIRC, 1010 in binary is 10, and there must be a coach somewhere that retired with 1010 wins. Too high for a pitcher. Possible for basketball veteran. Or a jockey. Lots of choices. No clue.

Sometimes it is what it is...
and then there's times when it's really better.

I think the iPads are some of Apple's least-heralded great hardware.

Too bad iOS sucks on such great tech.
