Production of new 4K iPad Air to begin in 2Q16

Apple is expected to unveil new models of its iPad Air in March 2016 and production will start in the second quarter, with General Interface Solution and TPK Holding to supply touch panels, according to Taiwan-based supply chain makers.

The new 9.7-inch device will reportedly come equipped with a 4K resolution panel and up to 4GB in RAM, in addition to improved battery life.

GIS will be responsible for LCD modules and touch panels along with backlighting products while TPK will supply touch panels, the makers said.

The makers said they expect a slight on-year increase in demand for touch panel products from Apple in the first half of 2016 due to orders for products equipped with 3D Touch despite the new iPad Air not coming equipped with the technology.

Apple believes that despite a decline in the tablet market and increased competition globally, it still has a base of dedicated customers who are looking to upgrade their iPads, the makers noted.
