Why iPad Sales Are Slowing

Send Article to a Friend

The iPad was Apple’s fastest growing product for several years, but sales have slowed, and analyst Ben Bajarin offers a few possible reasons why. He focuses on the point that, while they can do many things well, there’s little tablets can do that a computer or smartphone can’t do as well or better. The iPad debuted in 2010, which is often cited as the beginning of the end of PC sales, but Bajarin notes that was also about the time smartphones went mainstream, which might instead explain the decline in PC sales.favicon follow link

Well, one reason I haven't replaced my iPad 3 is due to iOS 7. If they'd dump the sucky interface and go back to the beautiful earlier one, I'd by a new iPad in a heartbeat, most likely a Mini with Retina. I respect Jony Ives as a HARDWARE designer, but for software he is in way over his head. It is sad to see such arrogance.
