Apple will discontinue the iPad 2 in the near future, after almost three years on the market, says AppleInsider.

According to people familiar with Apple's plans, the company has made the decision to ramp down iPad 2 production given that customers are resoundingly shifting purchases towards its more modern and capable iPads, namely the iPad mini and iPad Air.

Late last year, KGI Securities analyst Mich-Chi Kuo predicted that Apple would discontinue the iPad 2 in the first quarter of 2014 following estimated sales of only 1.7 million units in the December quarter and then 0.3 million in 1Q14.

The non-Retina iPad 2 featured a redesign of the original iPad. It came in a new white color with a FaceTime camera, Smart Cover support, and an A5 processor.
