iPad Sales Up 1%. Eh. But Where’s The Mini 5?

The iPad vs. Mac Juxtaposition

Apple now finds itself with an iPad business that is twice the size of Mac in terms of unit sales, but smaller than the Mac when it comes to revenue. The iPad user base is nearly three time as large as the Mac user base and is growing by 20 million new users per year while the Mac user base is seeing more like 10 million new users per year. In a nutshell, both the iPad and Mac businesses have found stability and continue to connect with their respective user bases.

I don’t think he’s counting revenue from the App Store for iPad apps. That has to make a difference. And that App Store revenue alone is probably more than all Android tablets sold combined.

I still hope like a total idiot that Apple will surprise all of us with an iPad Mini 5 soon. There needs to be a Mini 5 to go along with that shiny iOS 12.
