iPad Mini 5 is the next best Apple device people are looking forward to. The piece of equipment is something that people are waiting for. And fans and loyalists are full of never ending conversation both online and offline. The last iPad mini was launched in September 2015, and it has been over a year, and about time the iPad mini 5 came out. As per rumors, the next installment will roll out in March of 2016. We’ll are rounding up all rumors regarding the upcoming device.
When it comes to any discussion surround iPad Mini 5, one keeps coming back to the question on when the device will launch. Last year fans were pretty annoyed when Apple decided to skip the launch of iPad mini 5 and only rolled out Apple Watch and iPhone 7 & 7 Plus. The last device came out months ago alongside the release of iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus. So naturally, fans were expecting a new installment when iPhone 7 came out. The good news is that the iPhone 7S may launch this year in September and tech gurus predicted a September 2017 launch for iPad mini 5. But now there is a wind of rumors sweeping the Internet landscape whispering that the device will indeed come out earlier March.
Several rumors have surfaced pointing to the fact that the iPad mini 5 will roll out in March. Moreover, lately, a report from China has strongly backed the early release news. The Chinese source also believes that the device will be pretty similar to Apple’s iPhone 7. Not just that, there are speculations suggesting the device will feature a new Apple pencil. The pencil may come with a magnet attached to it like the one found in Microsoft’s Surface Pro models.
As far as the reports are suggesting, the mini 5 will see a design overhaul. It’ll be thinner at just 5mm, but this would mean smaller battery, that won’t last long, and you’ll have to put it on charge every other hour. Similar to iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, the iPad mini 5 will apparently have 7000-series aluminum chassis which is different to the one’s previously used. Apple has a patent for a foldable screen, and this has led many to speculate that Apple is planning to revolutionize technology with mini 5. There is no real evidence until the device is launched so this is probably a stretch. The device could very well feature Smart Connector that is found in iPad Pro. And very likely iPad Pro’s Smart Keyboard too will be something mini 5 will have. Lastly, it is being believed that the mini 5 could be dust-resistant and waterproof.
As for the camera, the tablet is expected to arrive with an 8-megapixles camera in the rear and a 1.2-megapixels camera on the front for taking selfies. We won’t lie, the front camera is a bit of a disappointment because, at such low quality, Facetiming would be a challenge. The device is likely to roll out in September 2017.
