Even though past rumors pointed to an October or November 2016 release, the iPad Mini 5 release date has been postponed to next year. To top it off, new rumors say Apple might rename this compact device to ?iPad Pro 2.?
Meanwhile, the predecessor iPad Mini 2 is now available at a?discounted price of $204.99 on eBay. The original price of this device used to be $499. With this deal, you can save $295. This compact device comes with a Retina display and 32GB of native storage space.
In any case, buyers should note that even though this device is brand new and it comes with original accessories, eBay says the original package may be slightly distressed. This is precisely why the seller is offering free 1-year warranty.
Furthermore, the discounted model has a white/silver exterior. EBay says only limited quantities of the iPad Mini 2 are available on discount.
The prominent seller ?Quick Ship Electronics? enjoys 99.7% positive rating on eBay. A total of 4,884 units of this discounted device have been sold thus far. And, as always, you can avail free shipping service from eBay upon purchasing this compact slate.
The iPad Mini 2 configurations include a 7.9-inch Retina display, 1GB of RAM, Apple A7 processor, 5MP main camera and 1.2MP secondary snapper. Also, this is a Wi-Fi only tablet.
Moving on to the iPad Mini 5, rumor has it that Apple will make use of the stronger 7000-series aluminum alloy. Also expect the device to be slimmer and lighter than the predecessor.
Reports also say a pressure sensitive 3D Touch display can be expected. Under the hood, Apple?s A9X processor will apparently power this tablet, instead of the latest A10.
The iPhone maker has apparently got rid of the traditional 16GB model and instead, it will offer 32GB, 64GB and 128GB of built-in storage choices. The iPad Mini 5 is believed to come with dust and water resistant exterior, much like the latest iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
