Apple can present as early as September 5 iPad Mini with a display that supports 3D Touch casing with a thickness of only 5 mm and a smaller battery.
The latest rumors suggest that the coming autumn we will see not only the launch of a successor iPhone 6S, but also a smaller iPad. If the reports are confirmed that in September we will see new iPhone 7 and iPad Mini 5.
iPad Mini 5 and iPad Mini Pro?
Information suggests that Apple may determine a new tablet with reference to the iPad Pro. Consequently, the iPad Mini 5 can become iPad Mini Pro. This is only a potential premise, in which should not be too much to believe. iPad Mini because of its size is not designed for professionals, hence the nickname "Pro" probably will not be added.
The new device is expected to receive standard 7.9-inch screen and new features, some of which will be borrowed from the larger iPads, and some iPhones. In the case of the same design, the iPad Mini 5 should look the same as the iPad Mini 4. It is possible that Apple decides to implement housing made of aluminum 7000 series. This would increase the strength of the tablet. The information also indicates that the equipment is to be thinner than its predecessor and have only 5 mm thick. Most likely, Apple decides to implement the color version of Rose Gold. As a result, uniform would be a line of products in terms of available options iPads.
Specifications and new features
Sadly lacking photos and information on the same specifications of the iPad Mini 5. Most rumors seem to be mere conjecture. Some of them goes far into space, while others appear to be a bit more mundane. Among the changes mentioned implementation A9 processor and abandoning 16 GB model. Most likely, Apple decides to leave the variants with a capacity of 32 GB, 64 GB and 128 GB. Getting rid of the 16 GB version coincide in time with the simultaneous abandonment of this type of model for the release of the iPhone 7. The most requested new feature, which finally can be found in the iPad, and the missing (probably for technical reasons), the iPad Pro is known for iPhone 6S 3D technology Touch. Denunciations indicate that Apple may be tempted to implement this solution in its smallest iPad. As a result, he would have the chance to fight new opportunities to display saturated tablet market.It is worth mentioning that with the conference is scheduled for the official release of iOS 10, which will go to the hardware of the bitten apple. IOS 10 significantly extends the functionality of the equipment in cooperation with 3D technology Touch, also known as the Force Touch. Accordingly, it is expected that iPad Mini 5 may be provided in it. ISight camera (8 megapixels), cam for video calls (1.2 megapixels) and the Touch ID to remain intact.
Looking a little fantasies, but remaining well within the capabilities to bear in mind that the iPad Mini 5 could be waterproof and Chicken-resistant. Due to the extensive competition that long ago implemented this solution and the evidence suggesting their implementation in iPhone 7, you can hope that you will find also in the new tablet. Another possible new on board the iPad Mini 5 can also be support for Apple Pencil and adding NFC chip responsible for the operation of Apple Pay.
Is iPad Mini 5 does not receive a mini-jack?
All the rumors suggest that the new iPhone 7 will lose 3.5 mm audio connector, called mini-jackiem. It is possible that Apple will get rid of this solution also for iPad Mini 5. disposing of this technology speaks suggested reducing the thickness of the housing. However, looking from a more logical perspective is so serious that causes confusion and change, rather that Apple may refrain from its decision to remove two different products (iPhone and iPad) at the same time.
Implementation of 3D Touch, as well as reducing the thickness of the casing may involve only maintain or even reduce the capacity of the battery of iPad Mini 5. For the record it is worth noting that the iPad Mini 4 has a battery capacity of 5124 mAh. However, with the new processor is expected to improve energy efficiency, so any reduction in the size of the battery will not adversely affect the time using the tablet.
Release date and price
A year ago, the iPad Mini 4 made its debut among the new products presented at the conference held in September. If the iPad Mini 5 will appear in this year, probably in the identical period of time. iPad Mini 5, like its predecessor should, therefore, be on sale the same day. Sam Price iPad Mini 5 will probably be set at the current price the iPad Mini 4. The price of the older generation will be reduced.
