New Poll Suggests Over 27% Believe Software is Causing iPad’s Growth Problem


New Poll Suggests Over 27% Believe Software is Causing iPad’s Growth Problem

Apple is expected to update its iPad product line with a range of new models, next month … but with the tablets anticipated to run on a version of iOS that is similar to that which powers today’s available models, this isn’t preventing some out there from questioning the product’s potential future.

With sales of the iPad still said to be declining in favour for the smaller-screened and more pocketable iPhone, 9to5Mac recently ran a poll to determine what people currently consider to be the ultimate cause behind this slow in growth.

When asked if this year’s hardware updates will be enough to return the iPad to growth, 27.87% of respondents cited software as the device’s current and main issue, while 11.4% said they believe the upgrades will be enough.

That just left the remaining 56.3% of the vote -which saw 5,980 respond- to those who believe the iPad is suffering from both software and hardware issues, as the tailing 4.46% gave their own reasons for why they think the iPad isn’t doing so well.

Apple is currently expected to unveil both a new 10.5-inch configuration of its flagship tablet offering, alongside a new version of the iPad Pro – at a special event which could be held at the brand-spanking new Apple Park, set to open its doors officially this April.

In an attempt to merge the worlds of music, design and journalism, Arron is perhaps best known for founding online news brand: RazorianFly; a hobby which grew to attract a monthly audience of 120K.

Today he can be found designing and writing for whilst also managing #THEHOTLIST - a weekly updating playlist of the hottest new artists, now streaming on Apple Music.
