The well-known Apple analyst Ming Chi-Luo is hanging his abacus at KGI Securities. He is famous for predicting the perfect analysis regarding the Apple products like iPad and iPhone in the past.

Kuo is now telling that Apple is going to release a stylus during the next quarter, probably compatible with the 12.9-inch Apple iPad Pro. He has predicted the arrival of new Apple product on the basis of numerous stylus patents applied by Apple in the past few months.

Steve Jobs might be spinning like a driedel by hearing the stylus update in his graveyard. No one can ever forget his review about stylus during launching of OG Apple iPhone in January 2007.

Kuo added that stylus is more suitable than using a keyboard or mouse and also more accurate than a person’s finger. It might be available as a additional compatible accessory considering the budget factor of iPad Pro.

The analyst is not expecting any special features to stylus right now. However, gyroscope might be embedded in future products that allows to “write on air”. Also Lightning connector can be utilized by Stylus for charging purpose. Apple is targeting mainly corporate and education sectors for increasing the sales of iPad Pro along with stylus.

“We don’t foresee significant sales of an optional stylus in 2015 and forecast unit shipments of 2-2.5 million. But we believe that the stylus could improve the experience of users, however, and will likely help Apple develop specific customer groups such as the corporate sector and educational institutions.”-Ming Chi-Kuo, analyst, KGI Securities
