    Apple is expected to announce this year's new iPhone and iPad models on September 9, but a fresh report coming from DigiTimes suggests that the company won't actually release the successor to the iPad Air 2 and will instead focus on the new iPad mini.

    Along with the revamped iPad mini, Apple is also believed to finally announce its biggest tablet yet, the much-rumored iPad Pro. When it was announced, the iPad mini 3 was just an incremental upgrade while the iPad Air 2 has gotten a lighter frame and larger size.

    Therefore, Apple might use the same logic on the iPad Air 2 this year as it has done with the iPad Mini 3, especially if it really plans to announce the iPad Pro. DigiTimes added the following:

    "The sources pointed out that Apple has turned conservative about its tablet product line and is not planning to release a next-generation model to replace the existing iPad Air tablet; however, Apple is ready to release its fourth-generation iPad mini and the related supply chain is already preparing the device's components. The fourth-generation model will only have a few small upgrades from the third-generation one."

    The tablet market is seeing a decline in numbers, so a bigger-sized iPad could be targeted more at the enterprise than regular consumers.

      Not surprised, if this were to end up being true. The Air 2 is a pretty big jump from it's predecessor so Apple can get away with it for another year and have the new mini and "pro" take center stage.

      I was wondering if the nex gen will come with a rose pink version.
