Apple Pencil shipments could double with the arrival of the new 9.7″ iPad — 2022

KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo published a report yesterday where claimed that Apple Pencil sales will see a 50% increase in 2018 after the possible launch of a new 9.7-inch iPad that incorporates compatibility with the Apple Pencil, something that seems logical for the company to do if it intends to sell more of this accessory, which can be very useful on an iPad with a 9.7″ screen.

The Apple Pencil could have more importance in the market

In this forecast, Kuo believes that the company could sell up to 10 million units of your pencil, a significant increase estimating that 2017 sales were around 4-4.5 million units.

Currently, the Apple Pencil for the iPad Pro is priced at around 100 euros.

All these hypotheses that the analyst has made They are not firm although it will give investors a clue to see which manufacturers increase the order of parts to be able to assemble the Apple Pencil.

All this is based on the rumor that Apple will release a cheaper 9.7-inch iPad with Apple Pencil support . This will have a reduced price, causing more people to end up buying it and therefore, the Apple pencil will have a more potential users something that surely Apple is looking for. If we think as entrepreneurs, this would be the most logical if the goal is to sell more of this accessory.

Currently only the Pro range is compatible with this accessory, so the device itself is too expensive for the normal user who does not need as much power in a tablet, because you will not need to perform graphic tasks. If an iPad is endowed with a larger audience base, sales should increase.

This prediction of a cheaper new iPad gained strength with the event on March 27 that Apple will not broadcast live . In this event, the invitation features the company's logo sketched in pencil, so we all thought we would see a cheaper iPad with the education sector in mind.
