New Delhi :
As per latest report, Apple is planning to introduce a cheapest 9.7-inch iPad next year in March to attract more price-oriented customers.
It is expected to be priced at Rs 16,700 which is even lower than the current 9.7-inch iPad available in the market.
The step is being taken to revive the sales of the flagship tablet which have been falling since the year 2014.
It is still not clear that whether the newer version of iPad will be replacement of the old one or will be completely different from the last year’s iPad.
Currently, there are no clues on the features but it is speculated that in order to reach at such price level, the tablet will not be feature rich.
A source revealed that Apple is likely to outsource the production of the new iPad tablet to Compal Electronics, device’s PCB orders to Compeq and Unitech Printed Circuit Board. However, none of the companies admitted the same.
The news of cheapest iPad may sound like a great news, but it is still not confirmed whether from either Apple or manufacturer and is based on a speculative leak.
