Not sure how I feel about this. It pains me to write this but given Apple previous moves and reading the Apple tea leaves. Now the next CPU will be the AX or A10 whatever they call it. Likely a Dual Core to be used in the Next iPhone. Reports show it will be made by TSMC at 10nm. Now at 10nm for a Tablet version that affords more room on the die and A Dual Core A10X does not seem appropriate for new iPad Pro tablets launching in 2017. http://www.fool.com/investing/gener...ust-learned-about-the-apple-inc-a10-chip.aspx Another thing that peaked my interest was that anytime Apple goes backwards its a bad move. the A8X was Tripple Core going to a Dual Core A9X is a step backwards even though its faster more cores is always better. Heck the performance benchmarks the A8X vs the A9X are so close if you add another core to the A8X you may equal or exceed the A9X. I'm so troubled by a Quad Core A10X and 4GB RAM launching in 11 months I am seriously considering returning my 9.7 iPad Pro. As happy and gushing as many of us are with it now. I can't help feeling that its gonna be blown out of the water. Unlike the iPad Air 2 which has been going strong since Late 2014 I can see Apple launching an iPad Pro 2 in 11 months and new Apple Pencil 2 with much needed updates like. Wireless charging Improved responsiveness internal LED's lights which change the entire color of the pencil a pressure sensitive button and finally killing off the iPad Air 2 and dropping the iPad Pro 9.7 down to $499.
