According to Apple’s analyst Daniel Ives, Apple plans to launch the third-generation AirPad on the market by the end of this year, 2019, with waterproof features. Previous generations of AirPad did not use the IP standard to withstand water resistance.
According to Philip Elmer-DeWitt this weekend, Ives said the new generation of AirPad is scheduled to be marketed during the holiday season this year. Ives also said that the new generation AirPad is supposed to be an advancement in design. From the outset, the AirPad has been featured and designed in December 2016.
The information, which has been made with several rumors about the third generation AirPad, is said to be released next year.
The first person to disclose this is Mark Gurman. In February 2018, he said Apple is working on a new AirPad capable of supporting Siri, which Apple unveiled in March 2019. In June 2018, he announced that Apple is working on a new AirPad series that is resistant to water and noise.
He also explained that Apple is working on a pair of headphones designed to eliminate vibration and noise and was scheduled to be released early this year. He also said that these headphones will have studio quality and will be released under Apple’s brand name.
In April, Apple’s analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said two new models of AirPad would probably be mass-produced between the end of 2019 and the first quarter of 2020. One of these two models is quite different and more expensive than the second generation. The price of this airship starts at $ 159.
Both models will have a different interior design than previous generations. This can improve assembly performance, save space and reduce costs. But Kua has not talked about apparent changes.
Taiwan’s DigiTimes website also expects the third-generation AirPad to be released in late 2019.
