BGR has some troubling thoughts for Apple today regarding iPad sales, and in particular, how they will be affected by the forthcoming release of the iPhone 6.
As BGR notes, iPad sales took a significant fall in the March quarter, and now Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty is predicting further trouble ahead by drastically reducing her tablet growth projection for 2014 down to 12% from 26%.
BGR says that one possible reason for the sudden decline in tablet sales overall could be increased competition from cheap phablets, which Canalys has recently said are going through the roof.
With the new iPhone 6 expected to represent a significant upgrade from previous models, and with a bigger screen and lots of exciting new features, could users be tempted away from their iPads?
That remains to be seen, of course, but if the iPhone 6 achieves the spectacular sales expected of it, that could more than compensate for any decline in iPad sales.
