Odd of March 2013 iPad Refresh

What are the odds of Apple releasing new iPads just 5 months after the iPad 4th generation & iPad Mini were released?

The same odds that caused the 4 to come out 7 months after the 3.

More interesting is what are the odds somebody else will start this this same thread within 48 hours?

This thread again...

Anyway is a different situation rather than iPad 3 to iPad 4 mostly because of the Lightning connector.

IMHO, a thinner and lighter iPad 5 on March is just a "tantrum" of some customers, "spoiled" by the iPad Mini form factor (with a different tecnology, processor, display and batteries) or pissed off because of the svalutation of their iPad 3.

I doubt most people who bought an iPad 3 are complaining about their iPads being outdated. Apple sold millions...there might seem like a lot of people complaining in this forum.

Most people are still expecting Apple to release a new iPad in the spring because iPad, iPad 2, iPad 3 were all released during that time with major updates. They had an event just for the iPad alone.

Apple spend 5 minutes talking about the iPad 4...

I'd put money on zero chance of a March iPad refresh (of either size).

With iOS moved to fall, the MAC will be back!!!

My predictions....

March will see a return to Software announcements. Something Apple has long since been accused of ignoring of late.

I think new MacBook Airs / Macbook Pros and that finally about time it was sorted "Mac Pro" refresh that pro's have been crying out for, for far too long.

New Mountain Lion updates and/or 10.9 information and of course some pro-app announcements to go along with it

Aperture 4,
Final Cut Pro XI
Logic Pro 10

iWork 13
New iLife applications.


Those happening in the end of Q1 2013 going into Q2 2014 will keep most people more than happy including the stock market / shareholders.


There was a time 'before iPads' when Apple Mac's were the focus. Apple could re-brand 2013 as year of the Mac!

The UK Apple store is still quoting 2 weeks dispatch for the Mini, so they may not have caught up with demand for this model yet. I think the full size iPad is more likely to be refreshed than the Mini though.

No promises, but it is likely. With iPads. Apple needs to keep the game fresh so they keep the stronghold on the pad market.

Don't expect anything amazing to be released during 6-month updates. Might have small spec bumps or even a slight case redesign, but they will be close to what came before. Maybe after a couple years of those minor updates you will see an iPad which is truly amazing.

If you keep complaining about same threads being opened again and agan why don't you organize the place better ?
After all it's a forum about Apple and having a place for everything(a forum in this case) should be something normal around here.

Could you imagine how many USEFUL threads would then be on the first page if the 4,893 threads about when the next release is coming were shunted to another sub forum?

It would be enough to get some people like me to come here more often.

I wasn't saying to have all of the most important forums on the first page I was talking more about unifying the forums on the same topic... take the next iPad for example... you do a forum "iPad 5th generations rumors & discussions" or smth like that and you merge all of the existing forums into that.

It depends on whether Tim Cook has decided to 'take his foot off the gas' or not.

I agree with this. When apple releases a new iOS they do it with the introduction of a new iphone, not a new ipad . At least I think this has been the pattern in the past.
