The iPad Mini 5 is one of the most talked about devices that are expected to be launched this year. But, a lot of fans got disappointed because it was still a no-show at the previous Apple event. Apple did not even release any statements regarding the iPad Mini 5.
Several rumors and speculations keep spreading online. Some people say that the iPad Mini line is dead and Apple will never continue producing it. According to a report from PCadvisor, Apple is ending the “Mini” tagline after iPad Mini 5 and calls its upcoming 7.9inch tablet the iPad Pro instead. More likely, the device will be launched on March 2017.
According to a report from AppleInsider, the reliable Apple analyst Ming Chi-Kuo predicted that the iPad Mini 5 might have the same specs with the iPad Pro 2. The tablet might also have three different models: the 9.7inch, 10.5inch and 12.9inch. Consumers can also choose three different storage options of iPad Mini 5: the 32GB, 64GB and 128GB.
If the rumors are true, the iPad Mini 5 might sport an A10 chipset with a 2GB of RAM. Apple might also remove the 3.5mm headphone jack in the device to follow the trend made to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The tablet is also expected to sport an 8-megapixel primary camera, 1.2-megapixel front facing shooter and iOS 11 operating system.
The iPad Mini 5 will also have an improved battery life to support the new features of the device. The iPad Mini 5 will also have a lighter and more compact body compared to its previous models. According to reports, the iPad Mini 5 with 32GB storage is expected to cost $550, the 64GB variant at $520, the 128GB at $640 and the most expensive 256GB internal storage at $950.
