There has been so much speculation, rumors and analysis on Apple's iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C lately, it seems as if the iPad has been forgotten. Apple is the leader in the tablet market, and its "very busy fall," according to CFO Peter Oppenheimer, could wind up seeing Apple extend that lead. Particularly, if it announces not one, but two new iPads as expected. The rear plastic backing that may or may not belong to Apple's next iPhone is already being tested for durability, weeks before the device is expected to debut. Apple's tablet market share in China was at 49 percent last year, but dropped to 28 percent in the second quarter of 2013.
