Apple apparently planning to launch a new 9.7-inch iPad at the cheapest price range. In March this year, Apple introduced a $329 9.7 inch ipad for the first time. Technical specifications of this new device are unknown; it could very well be a slightly-tweaked version of the current 2017 iPad sold at a lower price point another year later. Apple will launch an iPad in the second quarter of 2018 for a price of $259 (Rs 16,000 approximately). That’s pretty cheap considering it’s Apple we are talking about. The AirPods cost $159 and now you might get an iPad by spending just a 1oo bucks extra (Dollars not Rupees). The device is backed by a 32.4Wh non-removable battery that is rated to deliver up to 10 hours of web surfing. The report says that Apple could make the cheaper 9.7-inch iPad model available in emerging markets, which in all likelihood includes India. Bringing a cheaper iPad device in markets could revive the segment. The company faced a decline in the tablet segment since past three years now. This year’s launches however, helped it grow to some extent. The device would be manufactured by Compal Electronics and ‘may arrive in the second quarter of 2018’, according to the report.
