This day was certainly remembered by the first owners of an unusual gadget from Apple with huge queues and incredible excitement after the historic presentation of Steve Jobs. The most incredible rumors and assumptions about an unusual novelty were circulating everywhere. And now 5 years have passed.
In the first two months alone, 2 million devices were sold, and in just 5 years this figure exceeded 250 million. Apple's competitors couldn't come to their senses for a year. Particularly hit was netbooks, which occupy an intermediate position between stationary computers and laptops. They were replaced by a unique hybrid of a computer, an e-reader and a smartphone.
Nevertheless, over the past 5 years, the passions for the iPad have subsided a bit. According to the data received, their sales volumes have recently decreased by 18%. This is especially true for models with large screens.
The past five years has become a time of new achievements and technological breakthroughs. The spirit of leadership and tireless creativity embedded in Apple by its great creator is alive and well and continues to bear fruit.
Newer models such as the iPad mini with Retina display are more powerful and modern in design. The next generation of the iPad and a whole line of "smart" watches will soon see the light of day, which cannot even be called a watch. They are so smart.
