“The dark horse is a 13-inch iPad that is a replacement for full-fledged laptops,” Arora writes. “If this dark horse appears, the technical setup in Apple stock is such that the stock can easily rocket to $600 and beyond.”
Arora writes, “Such a device would be a game changer because it would be the first tablet from Apple that would be a full-fledged laptop replacement.

The introduction of such a device would also calm critics who are fearful that Apple has stopped innovating.”
