Apple’s iPad lineup currently offers three different screen sizes, but according to a new report, that number could soon drop to two.
Apple is planning to phase the iPad mini out of its lineup, according to a source speaking to BGR. Slow sales of the device are cited as the reason for its upcoming demise, as the 7.9-inch iPad mini is being squeezed out on either side by the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus and the 9.7-inch iPad.
It’s unclear if Apple plans to straight-up pull the iPad mini in the near future or if it’ll continue to sell the current model for a while without updating it. The current iPad mini originally made its debut in September 2015.
Given the array of screen sizes that Apple now offers, it wouldn’t eb a surprise to see the iPad mini get retired. When the original iPad mini debuted, it was the in-between screen size, giving consumers an option between the 4-inch iPhone and 9.7-inch iPad. Now that we’ve got the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus, though, many folks would likely choose that as an on-the-go large screen device over the iPad mini.
