The early iPads

The graphic highlights the ever-changing iPad user, which model appeals to which type of user. It also sheds light on the key feature additions in the history of Apple’s tablets. The first model appealed to early adopters and tech geeks. They no longer needed to carry multiple devices like music player, camera, thanks to the cool new gadget’s all-in-one design. It rendered the old-school keyboards obsolete.

The next major upgrade arrived in 2012 in the form of iPad 3, which instantly became a go-to device for travelers. It featured an increased battery life, better resolution for watching movies, and 5MP camera for high-quality photos. Around the same time, Apple introduced the smaller iPad Mini. Its tiny design and lower price points appealed to young children and parents.

iPad Pro targets business users

The next is the iPad Pro that would come with a plethora of features for professionals. It has multitasking features like Split-View, allowing users to work on different productivity apps at the same time. Its accessories include Apple Pencil ($99) and a Smart Keyboard ($169). You can work on documents using the new Pencil while waiting to catch a flight.

Apple has said the iPad Pro would hit the stores in November, without specifying a date. However, recent reports suggest that the Cupertino company isn’t quite optimistic about its 12.9-inch tablet. Apple has placed orders for only 2.5 million units for the crucial holiday season, anticipating weak demand.
