This will not be the only time when Apple is trying to reduce the production of iPads because Apple has tried to do this now and then whenever it was required.
We have also heard that Apple is trying to use the components from all the older versions of the iPhone in the production of the iPhone 13. According to the studies conducted by the company, it was seen that shortly, the demand for iPhone 13 will rise and the number of people willing to buy an iPad or any other previous version will decrease.
The theory behind the decision
As we know, to acquire an Apple product we have to book it in advance. So, it was assumed that if people have to wait longer for an iPad, only a few of them will shift to Android tablets but if people will have to wait for an iPhone longer than expected then they will not wait and will quickly shift to Android phones. So based on this theory it was concluded that cutting back the production of the iPad is the right thing at the moment.
