Something to look forward to
Android 7.0 Nougat review
Apple sold 42.5 million iPads in 2016, way ahead of Samsung, which shipped only 27 million units last year. Yet the tablet market sinked 6.6% YoY so it's mostly bad news for everyone.
The Cupertino-based company itself registered a 14.1% decline in sales. The few growers among top players are Amazon with 11 million Fire tablets sold in 2016 and Lenovo which also saw a 12.3% growth to 10.9 million.
Trendforce predicts that iPad shipments will continue to fall in 2017 but Apple will keep its top position..
Apple is expected to launch up to three different iPads in 2017 – a 9.7 affordable one, a new 10.5 device and an upgraded 12.9 iPad Pro.
