Everyone seems to be expecting the iPad 6, instead of getting thrilled for the iPad 5, which is expected to be revealed by Apple in a few weeks. The well trusted KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo sent out a study note over the weekend relating to the future of Apple’s iPad, iMac and MacBook lines. Unlike expert David Hsieh, who believes Apple is working with a 12-inch iPad, Kuo thinks the iPad 6 ‘won’t change from the existing 9.7-inch format.’ Rather Kuo says the iPad 6 will get a bump in pixels per inch instead of an increase in screen size.

‘In light [of] advancing Oxide and a-Si technologies, the PPI of iPad 6, which we anticipate to come out at end-2014, will surpass that of 2013’s iPad 5 by 30-40 %, which will offer more qualified visuals.”
Kuo also kept in mind that he expects the iPad mini 2 to feature a Retina screen, and included ‘that there will be no further changes to resolution for the third-generation iPad mini next year,’ according to MacRumors.
Most analysts appear to agree that Apple will freshen its MacBook lineup with a Retina display MacBook Air, and Kuo believes the business will release a more inexpensive variation of its iMac home computer in 2014.
Apple is expected to reveal its fifth iPad model and iPad mini 2 at an unique occasion on October 22nd.
