For the first time it is assumed sales of Apple iPad to fall in its five-year history.
A forcast was done by ABI Research on Tuesday and it says in 2014 the iPad sales may have reached about 68 million, which is down from 2013 when 74 million units were sold.
Senior practice director of ABI, Jeff Orr, said in the last calendar quarter Apple has sold around 35 percent of its total iPad sales in the year.
It is also expected other tablet producing companies such as Amazon, Google and Barnes & Noble too are to post drop sales figure year-over-year.
The forecast report adds further that tablet says growth is around 16 percent year over year and in 2015 the figure will be 194 million. More to this, the same trend may continue for the next five years and in 2019 around 290 million units will be shipped.
