iPad Pro Release Date: We won’t see it this year

We all were expecting iPad Pro this year but it seems that the iPad Pro release date will be pushed to next year i.e 2015 due to production cost and design finalization. One of the reliable source of KGI Securities told to iDigital Times that
Compared with lower-margin iPad mini with Retina display, which shipments has been tepid, higher-margin iPad Air was a hot selling item in 4Q13, which will slow Apple in developing new iPad mini models. We believe Apple plans to launch upgraded iPad Air early this year, and will accelerate development of 12.9″ iPad. As such, more resources will be allocated to these two products, which will affect the progress of the development of new iPad mini. All told, we think chances of the debut of a new iPad mini in 2H14 are slim. In addition, the 12.9″ iPad is unlikely to be offered in 2014. For these reasons, we predict the only new iPad product in 2H14 will be the upgraded iPad Air.
There is a high possibility now that this time we will be seeing an upgraded iPad this year and most expected an iPad which is lighter or of similar weight but with fingerprint sensor. As far as iPad Pro rumor is concern it is expected that it will be having 2 displays one of 2K and another of 4K resolution.
