Apple's Next Steps

— March 14, 2012

We can expect to see an LTE iPhone. Apple’s been wary of LTE power consumption issues and potentially unsatisfactory user experiences with battery life. That said we don’t believe Apple can wait any longer to deliver an LTE device. Nokia, Motorola and Samsung are all on board with LTE, and Apple can’t let them take front runner positions for very long.
 
We can also anticipate that the next generation “large” iPad will have both LTE and a retinal-quality display. A seven inch iPad is also very possible but we believe that this is likely to prove a lower cost, consumer-focused device that will have enough capability and the right price point to compete with Amazon’s Kindle, but not have the necessary features or firepower to work in the enterprise.
