Kuo said that demand for the latest iPad Air is better than expected and that he expects iPad sales to continue to rise over the next year as there are reports that Apple has an intention to make iPads with miniLED screens and support networks equipped. It plans to launch cheaper 5G and 5G models in the second half of 2021.
