Many are looking forward to seeing the features of the much-awaited iPad Mini 5, which will reportedly be the thinnest tablet in the market.
According to Movie News Guide, Apple?s soon to be released product will measure just 5mm ? making it slimmer than the 5.6mm thick tablets of its closest competitor, Samsung Galaxy Tab S2. The iPad Mini 5 will also be more durable with 7000-series aluminum.
Apple patrons also expect the iPad Mini 5 to have features similar to the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. It will reportedly also have the same altered chassis and a 3D Touch pressure-sensitive screen tech. iOS 10 will also be pre-installed in every iPad Mini 5.
Apple has not yet announced its official release date, but many are already excited for this small wonder gadget. A recent report from Christian Today said that previous iPad Mini models have traditionally launched in October. However, there have been speculations that iPad Mini 5 could be unveiled this September along with the iPhone 7 and other Apple products to be launched before the end of 2016.
Another highly-anticipated Apple product is the iPad Air 3. After initial rumors that it will be released this September, its launch has reportedly been postponed to 2017. With no confirmation as to the official release date of Apple?s 2016 gadgets, MacWorld also pointed out that the iPad Pro was introduced last March and Apple usually launches two new tablets in two separate events every year, which still leaves hope for a September 2016 unveiling. ?
