If these rumors are correct, it seems likely that the new 12.9-inch iPad Pro will not be released for nearly two years from the 2018 model (released in November 2018). However, the iPad Pro series may be appreciated by users because it is not cheap.
Shipment forecast was revised downwardHowever, if the release cycle is changed, the trajectory can be corrected in half a year without waiting for a new model one year later.
As for the iPhone main model in 2020, it is predicted that it will be the first four models. This is described later because a similar outlook has been announced from another side.
It has been pointed out that if the new iPhone is released in spring and autumn, it will be at the same pace as Samsung. Like Samsung, it is interesting whether it will be the Galaxy S series in the spring and the Galaxy Note series in the fall, both high-end machines, or entry models in the spring and high-end models in the fall.
The timing when the ultrasonic fingerprint sensor “3D Sonic Max” was announcedThat is how credibility increases.
