Apple on Tuesday announced its financial results in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015. Apart from record-breaking iPhone and Mac sales and incredible revenue, the company also reported about the number of iPads sold over the last couple of months. According to the official figures shared by the company, the number of iPads sold to customers worldwide in the fourth quarter is equal to 9.8 million units. Unfortunately for Apple, this figure demonstrates a 20% year-over-year decline in global sales. Even though Apple continues to be one of the leaders of the tablet market, looks like nothing can stop it from stagnation.

The analyst Benedict Evans has recently shared a chart showing how iPad sales declined since the debut of the original first-gen iPad back in 2010.

Apple Placed Limited Orders for iPad Pro - Insiders



According to the latest report from people familiar with the matter, Apple has placed limited orders for the new 12.9-inch iPad Pro, which is expected to go on sale as soon as next month. In particular, the company plans to sell only 2.5 million iPad units by the end of this year, which is obviously not very large number if compared to usual iPhone shipments. Moreover, if the demand for the tablet with massive pressure-sensitive display turns out to be weak, the orders for the first quarter of 2016 may be even lower, DigiTimes reporters claim.

New 27-inch iMac Supports Up to 64GB of RAM - OWC



According to the latest report from Other World Computing (OWC), the recently-introduced 27-inch Retina 5K iMac supports up to 64GB of RAM. Unlike the smaller 21.5-inch Retina 4K iMac, which uses soldered RAM that can be upgraded only by Apple on customer’s demand before the purchase, the larger model gives the owner an opportunity to upgrade the maximum RAM capacity offered by Apple by two times using modules of up to 16GB per one slot.
