Apple To Supposedly Ship iPad Air Plus With Optional ‘Stylus’ Accessory

With the Apple Watch now a genuine factor, all the reports appear to be about the iPad Air Plus that every person wishes so seriously to exist. New reports appear at a startling rate as far as the bigger iPad is worried, however KGI Stocks analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has something a little various to share – – it’s still regarding the iPad Air Plus, however it goes to the very least something unusual.

Mentioning Apple’s much proclaimed 12.9-inch iPad, Kuo claims that his firm believes that Apple will break the practice of a lifetime and produce an in-house stylus pen for the device, asserting that the tablet computer’s bigger display will certainly make it better for experts that require a stylus for an array of uses. Apple – – or even more especially Steve Jobs – – famously knocked the stylus at its initial iPhone keynote back in 2007, however as time moves on, and definitely Apple does the exact same, a stylus for the new iPad could be a genuine probability.


Notably though, Kuo says that the stylus’ high cost will avoid it from being packed with the brand-new iPad Air Plus, indicating those wanting one will certainly need to order it independently.

“We don’t think all users will need a stylus initially. Paired with its unfavorable cost framework, high marketing rates could turn customers off if the 12.9-inch iPad is constantly bundled with it. We for that reason anticipate the stylus pen to be an optional device prior to sufficient individual feedback is received.”

The high price will certainly make the stylus a lot more than a straightforward pen for jotting on the display. Lightning connector-powered asking for or even talk of a gyroscope being included in a future version suggests that this stylus pen will certainly be all singing, all dance if and when it goes to market. Kuo expects that to be in the direction of the second or 3rd quarter of the year – – the exact same timescale being thrown around for the iPad Air Plus itself.

Apple Stylus patent

Apple has actually sent license applications for a stylus pen or more throughout the years, though that indicates nothing when it concerns real, delivery products certainly. We wouldn’t be shocked to view a stylus with an Apple company logo on it, however the iPad Air Plus needs to show up initially.
