iPad mini 5 Release Date Rumors, Specs, Price & Features [VIDEO]; March 2017 Launch Likely

Close

Apple's recently concluded iPhone 7 launch event did not turn out the way tech buffs hoped. The Cupertino based tech firm did not mention some highly anticipated devices including the iPad Mini. However, rumors are rife that Apple is set to unveil the new iPad Mini 5 or iPad Pro Mini during its Oct. 27 launch event.

Rumor mills have been swirling around the iPad Mini 5 release date, features, design changes and more. Evidence is mounting that the new iPad Mini 5 is likely to hit the store shelves in the United Kingdom. Tech gurus are already speculating what specs and new features will the iPad Mini 5 receive as compared to its predecessor, the iPad Mini 4, and what UK price will Apple charge for the device.

iPad Mini 5 Release Date Rumors UK

There are rumors that the new iPad Mini 5 will be announced in March 2017. The speculation stems from the fact that fans have not seen any leaks or information hinting a 2016 release. It's worth noting that the previous iPad Mini versions were released in October and November. Aside from this, the new iPad is more likely to be released in March 2017 because Apple launched the iPad Pro in the same time frame i.e. March 31, 2016, according to MacWorld.

iPad Mini 5 Design Changes UK

The iPad mini 4 bears a striking resemblance to the first iPad mini. It remains to be seen if the new iPad Mini will undergo some radical cosmetic changes this time around. If rumors proved to be true, Apple will stick to a more conservative redesign and barely noticeable changes.

iPad Mini 5 UK Price

Apple is likely to keep the price of its iPad Mini line-up unchanged. The tech firm could decide to reduce the price of its previous-generation mini as soon as the new model hits the stores, according to TechAdvisor.
