Along with a slight increase in iPhone sales, analysts say 2014 will bring a decline for iPads

The holiday season saw a large jump in sales for iPads and iPhones alike, but analysts are now saying that they believe we have reached the peak of iPad sales.

According to over 30 analysts who were surveyed, they are predicting a 19.3 million sales of iPads in 2014, which is a .7 percent decline from 2013. Previously, Apple has seen a 55 percent increase year-after-year, but that might be about to change. There are many reasons that this can happen, though, including the fact that people could be awaiting the release of updated iPads that may be released later on in the year. An iPad Air update and an iPad mini, both with Retina displays are expected, with an iPad Pro coming out sometime next year.

This comes along with an increase in iPhone sales, though, which don’t seem to be damaged by the long awaited release of the iPhone 6 that might be coming with two options of larger screens if the other rumors are to be believed.

Official word from Apple about earnings will be coming later this month, at which time we will know for sure and have a closer look at the kinds of success that Apple has been having this year. Stay tuned to find out about it and whether or not you should wait until new models are released if you have been on the fence about upgrading to newer devices recently.
