Apple today expanded its Reuse & Recycling trade-in program in US and Canada to include iPads. Starting today, Apple Stores will start accepting iPad trade-ins, letting customers receive discounts towards the purchase of a new product.
Multiple analyst estimates predict that Apple will see a year-over-year fall in iPad sales in Q2 2014, with the decline ranging anywhere from 23% to 0.7%. So what’s the reason for this fall in sales? Former Apple exec Jean-Louis Gassée thinks that the simplicity of the iPad, and its lack of Pro features is restricting the iPad’s growth.
The iPad took center stage during a recent airing of The Tonight Show with host Jimmy Fallon and musician Billy Joel joining together to sing a doo-wop duet. The audience was entertained by an a capella rendition of The Lion Sleeps Tonight, but what you see on the surface is only part of the story.
