2020 11” iPad Pro

Before I get started, I just want to make it clear that I do not have any advertising relationship with Swappa and that I am not benefiting from this article in any way. Rather, this is just a recommendation based on my use of this service for the last five years. With that out of the way, let’s talk about selling iPads.

A Few iPad Predictions for 2021

Logitech Folio Touch for iPad Air In front

As I mentioned a couple of days ago, I did pretty well in my iPad predictions last year. However, there were a few clues out there that pointed in potential directions that Apple could move in. I just followed the breadcrumbs. We only have a couple of those this year, so I don’t expect to do as well. However, here are a few of my guesses for the year ahead.

IPad Air 4 Back

One year ago today, I made a predictions post for what I expected from Apple for the iPad in 2020. Whether you have sources or not (and I definitely have none), you should be willing to keep score if you are going to step out and make them. With that in mind, here’s a look back at how I fared with those predictions.

You know what they say about things that look too good to be true. That’s how I feel about the new 8th Gen iPad rumor making the rounds right now. However, the source has been right before, so this rumor is at least worth paying attention to.

The Apple Oracle Has Spoken and it’s Talking About iPads and Watches

iPad Air Mockup

No, as good as Jon Prosser is, he has not ascended to oracle status yet. According to @ApplTrack, he hasn’t even passed up Mark Gurman at this point. No, if you want a source of release information that is pretty much 100% reliable, then you should be paying attention to the Eurasian Economic Commission’s filings. They are open and Apple major devices always hit there within a month or so of release.

This story of a new patent potentially combining two Apple devices into an interesting hybrid has been circulating for over a week now, courtesy of AppleInsider. iPad news is fairly slow at the moment so I finally had a chance to circle back to it this weekend.

Before saying anything else, as with all Apple patents, there is no guarantee that this product or anything like it will ever come to market. However, these patent applications can be an effective way to track things that Apple is interested in and putting research dollars into.

Apple and its iPads Had a Huge 3rd Quarter

2020 iPad Pro

Apple just reported an unexpectedly huge 3rd quarter overall, with revenue up 10.9% year over year. Earnings-wise, it’s actually the biggest third quarter in company history. Revenue and sales increased pretty much across the board, including iPhone sales, making Apple the only company that saw an increase in smartphone sales last quarter,

All of that aside, it was the iPad that saw the biggest increase of all year over year, with sales up a whopping 31%. That’s a significant increase, especially on the heels of two straight quarters of declining revenues.

2020 11” iPad Pro

Rumors about Mini-LED iPads have been bouncing around for well over a year. Thanks to the effects of a worldwide pandemic, they have been all over the place in more recent months. First these new devices were coming in 2020 and later they were reported to be delayed until next year. The Mini-LED iPad Pro is still pegged for a 2021 debut. That said, now a report from DigiTimes says that Mini-LED could be back on for late 2020.
