DigiTimes, the leader in supplier-related tablet and smartphone sales reporting just released new research information that shows Apple’s iPad is on the downswing in a major way. While the rest of the tablet-producing market is increasing year-over-year, Apple’s shipment was down by 2.7 percent from the same period last year.

It is hard to believe that Friday is already here. These summer days just seem to fly by. We are already starting to lose our early morning sunshine. At least Fridays are great for some cool things, one of them being flashbacks. Radio deejays are always flashing back to the 1980s. Instagram users are always hash tagging #flashbackfriday with pictures of them stuffing cake in their faces on their first birthday. PadGadget is always talking about games from our childhood. Last week, we told you about the fun melee fighting game SoulCalibur. Ah, Dreamcast.

As time passes, the days grow shorter and our desire for new Apple products grows. We are fairly certain that a fifth-generation 9.7-inch screen will be in our hands sometime this fall. However, reports have been mixed about an iPad mini upgrade. Some reports say that an iPad mini with Retina display will launch alongside its big brother this fall. Other reports say that the device won’t be on store shelves until 2014. There was even a rumor early this year that the second-generation iPad mini would launch in June.
Will they or won’t they? It is like watching Ross and Rachel all over again. Rumors regularly abound when it comes to product launches, but this back–and-fourth reporting is getting out of hand.

Apple recently held its quarterly earnings call where CFO Peter Oppenheimer reported a record June for iPhone sales, but saw a drop in iPad sales by 2.4 million units for the same quarter. It appears that a lack of new product releases has caused a dip in sales of Apple’s tablet.
Yesterday, DigiTimes reported that iPad shipments are expected to drop even more in the next fiscal quarter, down to 10-12 million units. According to unnamed sources “from the upstream supply chain,” the significant drop is due to consumer anticipation for the next generation of iPad and iPad mini.
The sources also estimated that, of the 14.6 million iPad units that Apple sold in the third quarter, 10 to 11 million were iPad mini tablets and 3.6 to 4.6 million were 9.7-inch iPads.
