Back when Apple first started their legal campaign against Samsung they (Apple) were also beginning to break away from Samsung. This was understandable as there were and still are rumors (unconfirmed) that the whole legal argument started over the pricing of parts. The rumors claimed that Apple approached Samsung looking for preferential pricing and threatened to seek legal remedies if Samsung did not go along. Now we know that at least part of this it true. Apple did go to Samsung about pricing and also brought up their concerns about Samsung’s push into the smartphone market. If the rest is true no one but Apple and Samsung know for certain, but Apple did file a big suit against Samsung and have also been gradually pulling away from their Samsung as a primary supply partner ever since.

Gene Munster, an analyst from the Piper Jaffray, believes that Apple will simply redesign their larger iPad to make it look more like the iPad Mini. He says that Apple has, on average, a four month gap between big events, and usually they roll out new versions of tablets during the spring. Given that the iPad Mini was launched in October last year, it is expected that in the next few months they will introduce a redesigned larger iPad. But, Munster said he does not believe that Apple will introduce a smaller iPad with a Retina display with the current problems in supplying the market with sufficient equipment.
