iPad Price Cuts Hint That Apple Is About To Release New Ones?

It’s only been six months since Apple announced the iPad mini and slightly updated iPad 4, but already it looks like new generations of both models could be arriving sooner rather than later. Walmart, Best Buy and MacMall have all cut prices on the devices, which is usually a good sign that new models are on the way.

All three retailers have cut prices by 30% on the 3rd generation iPad and current iPad mini. If you still haven’t gotten your hands on either of these devices, now might be a good time. That being said, the next iPad mini is rumored to feature a Retina display, so you might want to wait for that one.

It’s getting harder and harder to predict when Apple is going to launch new devices. Apple could be moving towards a 6-month product release schedule with new iOS models, but if that’s the case, then we should have seen a new iPhone last month. With rumors flying around that the new iPhone could arrive in July, it’s hard to know what to believe. Then again, maybe that’s just what Apple wants. Either way, hopefully we’ll see some new-generation devices in the coming months.
