Two models could mean twice the launches

Apple aims to refresh iPad line twice a year

Analysts have said that Apple is likely to move to refreshing its iPad line-up twice per year instead of just once.

According to Digital Spy, Brian White of analyst firm Topeka Capital Markets said he was told by industry sources at CES that the fifth gen iPad and the second gen iPad Mini would both be launched in March this year.

He added that his sources said that there would still be another product launch in October, as there was last year, leading him to speculate at a twice-yearly refresh.

However, it is debateable whether or not this strategy will pay off, as the double launch seen last year angered a large number of Apple fans, many of whom like to be seen as having the latest device.
