Here’s why Apple doesn’t care about slumping iPad sales

Earlier, we told you about Apple’s device sales this quarter. Their total sales were impressive but iPad sales were way down, dipping 22% over last year. In taking questions from investors, Apple CEO Tim Cook commented on the iPad sales performance issues. Cook says he’s still bullish on the iPad, but not for the reasons we might think.

iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 — should you upgrade?

With two new iPad models being announced today, there’s one overriding question: should I upgrade?

More iPads sold in 4 years than any Apple product in history

More iPads sold in 4 years than any Apple product in history

This afternoon Apple has suggested that they’ve sold more iPads in the product’s first four years of availability than any other product. Even the iPhone, Apple’s best-selling product, didn’t reach the sales numbers the iPad did in its first four years in its own first four years. Adoption of the iPad was a lot easier to accomplish than the iPhone - no data costs, after all. Now Apple's quest must be how to replace those iPads - what's a new iPad when you already have one, after all?
