The iPad needs better software, not more screen sizes.
E.g., I cannot fathom why the iPad has not got a native Weather and Calculator app. These are actual very useful apps. Should their absence be understood as a lack of commitment? There's an explanation out there, but I am not sure if this story is to believed: http://www.cultofmac.com/421893/why-the-ipad-has-never-shipped-with-a-calculator-app/
Instead of changing the physical appearance of the iPad, Apple should offer us the ability to change the bezels in system preferences. You could change their size and colour. I'd like to call this the focus mode feature.
E.g. For me, I'd like to have a white border, while others would prefer an edge to edge display, expanding the screen of the iPad to 10.5 inch.
I can also imagine others with a gold iPad to want to have a black border. This would all be possible because the border is customisable. I'd imagine there would be four focus mode options in system preferences: no border, black, white and silver.
The new 4 inch iPhone will look cuteSE
This is significant.
Progressive web apps are the future of the web on mobile. I hope Apple recognizes this, and turn the iPhone into a true Internet Communicator.
Have a look at this video here. It is a Mozilla talk Chris Wilson did a couple of weeks ago:
