    So, now that ipad air is old news - what do we think apple will release next november in 12 short months time? Im talking ipad 6.

    - Better resolution?
    - Better battery?
    - Even thinner/lighter?

    Remember: whatever it is, it will make the ipad air feel like ipad 4 today.

    once you get so thin then you loose the rigidity. And it will become too fragile. maybe they will call the Apple 4k TV an ipad.

    it won't be 12 months i think. I think we can expect 6 months or so with touchID and maybe 7X chip. Maybe IGZO but I doubt that at this point :)

    Now that we've speculated on the iPad 6, what about the iPad 7?

    I think the iPad 7 will have a better camera and a rocketship to Mars. Anything less and it will be a let down.

    Ram

    If there's anything less than 2GB RAM....I'm STILL buying one :)

    One 6 month upgrade, for a whole of host of well documented technical and scheduling reasons, in 5 generations of iPad.

    If in doubt, ask yourself WHY would Apple release a new iPad in 6 months when the current iPad will be flying off the shelves, even in April next year.

    A new sku, a huge iPad Pro at a very high price or some such, is the only vaguely realistic possibility.

    It will have a Touch ID sensor, 8mp camera, and A7X chip. It hopefully will also have 2gb of RAM.

    I understand that releasing everything for xmas shopping season makes sense but if this year is any indication then we can come here in september next year as there will be nothing from apple until then. Yes, iPad is a good xmas present but release mid year won't change it too much.
    Wouldn't it make more sense for Apple to spread the products a bit better? I liked that before we had March for iPad, july for iphone and september for itouches etc.
    There was always something to look forward in a short time window.
    Now, if everything gets to sep/oct then the next 9 months will be quite dry.

    Although on the other hand, iPhone, iPad and iPod's could be just one even as its the same category (kinda)

    Fair point re: spreading out the schedule. It's very much stacked to one part of the year. I don't see that as a reason we'll see another iPad in that time (possible new sku iPad Pro aside) though.

    A far more likely possibility in my mind is Apple watch, Apple TV etc seeing a spring introduction. The watch especially fits in better with a spring schedule given it'll likely be fitness/fashion related.

    I dunno, the iphone 5 is thinner than the ipad air right? And thats pretty sturdy.

    I predict some sort of tactile feedback too - great for typing.

    well, theres bendgate.... but heres an example..

    A darning needle is pretty stiff, won't bend that with your fingers, but make that needle 1 foot long and it will be easily bent.

    That is an extreme example, but you get my idea.

    by tactile feedback, do you mean a simple vib motor? INNOVATION MAXIMUS!!

    the requirement never end because from iPad 4 onward every iPad will just follow iPhone spec or with some removal.

    So unless Apple no longer produce anymore iDevice, else every year there will be something new everyone wish for.

    I'd say all of these but 4 and 5 if it's in 6 months. The CPU and GPU are not holding anything back.
