Thanks in no small part to its recent earnings beat, shares of Apple seem to have finally broken free of the negativity that made the company into one of the cheapest stocks in the world. The iPhone did its fair share by absolutely smashing analysts' shipment estimates. However, the iPad left something to be desired. The revolutionary tablet is still -- by some metrics -- Apple's most successful device ever. So was this quarter's iPad shortfall a one-off, or start of something bigger? And if the latter actually is the case, how much of a difference could an updated iPad Mini make during the rest of the year? In this video, Fool contributor Andrew Tonner breaks down what investors should expect for the iPad in the second half of the year.
