iPad Air 2 

Design and Trend reported that the iPad Air 2 can be considered as the next best upgade of the iPad line. Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities noted: “We believe Apple plans to launch upgraded iPad Air early this year, and will accelerate development of 12.9-inch iPad.” 

“As such, more resources will be allocated to these two products, which will affect the progress of the development of new iPad mini. All told, we think chances of the debut of a new iPad mini in 2H14 are slim. In addition, the 12.9-inch iPad is unlikely to be offered in 2014. For these reasons, we predict the only new iPad product in 2H14 will be the upgraded iPad Air.” Kuo added.

The iPad Pro on the other hand will launch in 2015.
