The ardent fans of Apple, as well as the tech pundits, really hoped that the Cupertino-based tech giant would launch a brand new iPad during the WWDC event held in last September. Instead, Apple only unveiled the iPhone 7 and thus disappointed a million fans. So now the question is when Apple will release the next iPad, more specifically the much awaited iPad Mini 5. Well in this roundup article we have discussed everything on iPad Mini 5, starting from the iPad Mini 5 release date, probable specs, and features, expected design and build as well as the price.
iPad Mini 5 Release Date
As Apple did not unveil the iPad Mini 5 during the WWDC event, the company is looking forward to launching this coveted tablet in March 2017, along with the iPad Pro 3. So only a couple of months to go before we get not only but two brand new iPads.
iPad Mini 5: Design
Unlike its predecessor, the iPad Mini 5 is expected to be smaller in size. The iPad Mini 4 measures 6.1mm, while the upcoming tablet is expected to be almost 1.1mm smaller than the current version and could flaunt 5mm thin build.
Other than the thinner design, the US-based tech conglomerate is also likely to promote the bezel-less design and launch the OLED display. Moreover, Apple is also thinking to include the Series 7000 aluminum, which is both more robust and lighter compared to the other lower-grade aluminum used by the other handset manufacturers.
iPad Mini 5: Features
The iPad Mini 5 is very much expected to come with the powerful ARM-built Cortex-A9 Processor under the hood. The A9 processor is perfectly suitable for the smaller devices like wearables, handsets, and tablets and works at an extremely high speed with maximum efficiency.
Apart from the A9 processor, the iPad Mini 5 is expected to include 4GB Ram coupled with 128GB internal storage. One thing noteworthy is Apple is going to scrap out the 16GB gadget space option as well as thinking to incorporate the microSD card slot option.
On the camera front, the iPad Mini 5 is likely to sport a 12-megapixel snapper on the front end and an 8-megapixel shooter on the rear side. A 5,124 mAh battery will power the upcoming tablet.
iPad Mini 5: Price
Although Apple has not revealed the iPad Mini 5 price officially, sources claim that the all new iPad Mini 5 will come with a hefty price tag of $390. The price will vary according to the variants, just like most of the Apple products.
