Apple's 9.7-inch iPad With Apple Pencil Support Launching Next Week?

Apple's 9.7-inch iPad With Apple Pencil Support Launching Next Week?

Citing data collected by a firm called Wave7 Research, Piecyk notes both that Apple likely is taking share of the US smartphone market's sales in the March quarter, and also that its mix of units is tilting toward the newer iPhone X and iPhone 8-Plus. It's also a rare occasion for an Apple confab outside its home state of California. It's safe to assume that multiple cheap models of the iPad will appear with Pencil support. While Macs and iPads make up less than 20 percent of Apple's sales combined, students and teachers are a key market to drive future purchases.

As for the two service dogs, one wears a harness and is meant for people who are blind or have low vision while the other wears a vest and leash and is meant to for people who have seizures and other "hidden disabilities", Apple reportedly wrote in the proposal.

Apple didn't immediately respond to a request for comment. Google's Chromebook is said to have as much as 60 per cent of the market share with Windows PCs of Microsoft having 22 per cent share.

The model would replace the MacBook Air, Apple's ultraportable laptop released a decade ago. But the cheaper MacBook isn't expected until later this year.

The firm stood by its buy rating for Apple, and as reported by CBNC, the reason behind this decision is the company's upcoming plans for its iPhone line. Tekz24's sources say that the phone was scheduled to launch sooner, but that "government policies and other restrictions" forced Apple to delay its release. There are no specific details about the software available as of late.

For what it is worth, the invitation the company sent out for its forthcoming special event features an Apple logo which was seemingly designed using the Apple Pencil.

Apple is expected to host a field trip event in Chicago in the coming week and Kuo believes that Apple could use the event to unveil a new tablet.

Apple has tried citywide iPad deals for students in the past, with little success. According to a recent Bloomberg analysis, the company could be eyeing the Midwest for a major new office.
