Report: Apple to refresh entire iPad line with four new devices in March 2017

Apple could be unveiling four new iPads at an upcoming event in March 2017 that will refresh its entire line of iPads currently available.

The new models are expected to come in 12.9-inch, 10.5-inch, 9.7-inch and 7.9-inch screen sizes. The range is expected to replace the iPad Pro, iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 4 that are currently available.

Analysts also predict that a new iPhone SE will be announced with a 128GB hard drive. A red iPhone 7 and a new Apple Watch band are also expected to be unveiled.

Sliding sales

A 10.5-inch iPad had already been rumoured back in November 2016. The model is expected to target education and enterprise sectors as a good-sized, cheaper alternative to the 12.9-inch iPad Pro.

Apple's iPad sales haven't been particularly strong in recent financial releases. In its Q1 FY17 period for example, it sold three million less iPads year-on-year.
