iPad Mini 5 Release Date Confirmed For September? Check Out The Next iPad Mini's New Features, Specs And Design Changes [RUMORS]

Close

Rumors are running rampant that Apple is all set to unwrap array of brand-new gadgets during the month of September. One of the most-anticipated devices slated to make an appearance in September is the iPad Mini 5, which is rumored to sport a much thinner body compared to the iPad Mini 4.

Rumor mills continue to churn speculations around the iPad Mini 5 hinting it will sport a comparatively thinner (5 millimetres) body, which is 1.1 mm slimmer than the contemporary iPad Mini 4. But the change may not be well-received by every iPad Mini fan. While some Apple fans will find this rumored design to be appealing, quite a few believe the slimming down of the imminent Mini is totally futile, MacWorld reported.

Nevertheless, a thinner and slimmer design will not be spared from downsides either.

A thinner tablet would pack a smaller battery which implies iPad Mini 5's battery performance may be put in jeopardy; however Apple is reportedly developing a new battery technology to deal with this problem.

Strong rumors doing rounds hint Apple will roll out an extremely compact battery unit that though is small in size but will deliver impressive performance, according to VineReport.

The iPad Mini 5 will reportedly retain the camera features of the iPad Mini 4; however the processor will be upgraded. The iPad Mini 4 packs the A8 chip, but the upcoming iPad Mini 5 will boast A9 chip.

If rumors proved to be true, Apple may no longer continue manufacturing 16 GB as an entry level, but will use a 32 GB alternative instead.

The Cupertino-based tech firm has remained mum regarding the 5 mm thickness of the purported iPad Mini 5. Taking that into consideration, fans are advised to take these speculations with a grain of salt until Apple shares more details.

iPad Mini 5 Release Date:

The iPad Mini 4 made an appearance back in September last year and if Apple follows the same release pattern, an all-new mini tablet could be in the offing this year.
