Can the world survive without a new 9.7-inch Apple iPad introduced this year? It might have to if Chinese publication Economic Daily News is right. A reliable source in the past, the Economic Daily News says that Foxconn has received orders for the 12.9-inch Apple iPad Pro, and for the Apple iPad mini 4.
That would be … highly weird.
It would also be Samsung’s last chance, really. If they can’t sell loads of the 9.7-inch Galaxy Tab S2 in the absence of a new iPad Air, they’ll never be able to get anywhere with tablets.
