iPad Air and iPad mini 640x528According to our earlier post, we reported that Apple’s iPad is currently dominating as far as web traffic is concerned. The tablet managed to grab a hefty chunk of the market at 78%, although we did point out that this is actually a slight decrease from 2013 where it was at 83.6%.
