There isn’t doubt that the iPad Mini is one of the most awaited devices of the year. The mini tablet is expected to come with incredible upgrades with fantastic technology that will surely make the tab a monster of the tablet to get your hands on. It’s been over an since the last model was launched so in this post we are going to discuss the possibility of a release date as well as what new features are rumored to come in the iPad Mini 5.
Apple launched the first generation iPad Mini in the year 2012. It’s basically the little brother to the iPad that comes with a reduced screen size. With every new regeneration, the tab is becoming better and better which is why we have got a ton of expectations from the upcoming iPad Mini 5. And since we have been exploring new rumors and speculations, from what we’ve found out, the device looks promising.
As per rumors the iPad Mini 5 could be 5mm thick so that it’ll be a handful and will have a fingerprint scanner built into the screen of the device. It’ll be made of slim shell and is supposed to be slimmer and lighter that the last generation. Apparently, the device will have a fingerprint scanner built right into the screen, although the sources on this one is a bit sketchy the feature will definitely be a great add to the upcoming device. According to the rumors that we keep hearing the design isn’t going to be too radically different to that of the previous generation but it is being suggested that the tab could be dust and splash proof.
The screen resolution will most likely stay at 1536 x 2048 and among a few things that may change in the iPad Mini is that the display could automatically adjust to the color temperament in accordance with the ambient light.
Back in early 2017, there were rumors of a certain Apple Pencil 2 being built. The pencil is most likely being developed for either the iPad Pro mini or iPad mini 5 or both. Predictions are being made that the device will be supplied to Apple by its Asian supply chain. It is being said that the pencil will come attached to the side of the Mini 5 just the Surface Pro devices by Microsoft. The tab will be coming with an unimpressive 8-megapixels camera in the rear and 1.2-megapixels front-facing camera. There aren’t many rumors about the battery of the tab; we are speculating that mini 5 will be backed by a strong 5,124mAh battery.
As for the release date of the iPad mini 5, the first generation came out in the year 2012, in the month of October, while the iPad mini 2 rolled out in November 2013 and the iPad mini 3 in October, 2014 and the fourth generation was launched in the year 2015 in the month of September.
