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.
