iPad Mini 5 Likely to Be Just A Minor Specs Bump

Sorry to disappoint many fans who had expected the upcoming iPad mini 5 to flaunt high-end specs. As per the latest report, the 7.9-inch iPad will look and feel pretty much like its predecessor with some tiny upgrades.

Well-known leaker “Steve Hemmerstoffer” has revealed that Apple’s upcoming iPad mini 5, which is expected to be announced on March 25th event, will have minor spec bumps.

Hemmerstoffer has allegedly received the CAD rendering of the next-gen iPad mini, which suggests that the new tablet will look pretty much like its predecessor. Not that most of us had expected the 7.9″ iPad to flaunt the high-end specs; the leak can just put all the clouds to rest.

iPad Mini 5 Won’t Flaunt High-End Specs Like Edge-to-Edge Display and Face ID

The leaker has tweeted that except for relocated mic, the tablet will have no external design changes. However, the device is expected to pack in some stronger innards.

The compact iPad will feature a lower-cost display panel in the same form-factor. The other features that are going to be part of the device are Lightning connector, Touch ID, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Besides, it is also likely to support Apple Pencil and the Smart Keyboard.

There could be a couple of main reasons why Apple has decided to not add top-of-the-line features like Face ID and the edge-to-edge display. First and foremost, it wants to reduce the cost and make the iPad available at a low cost. And the second, the tech giant wishes to tighten its grip on the budget segment.

iOS 12.2 beta and the registration with the Eurasian Economic Commission have given enough indication that the Cupertino-based company is all geared up to introduce the new iPad mini and the upgraded iPad in the spring.

However, it’s not yet clear whether these devices will be unveiled on the much-awaited event where Apple’s streaming video service and News subscription service are rumored to take center stage.

That’s all for now!

A Wise Move…

Agreed, this news might disappoint many fans who had expected the new iPad mini to feature high-end specs. However, by upgrading the innards and making the tablet more capable, Apple intends to make the device a viable option in the budget segment–which seems to be a safe (if not wise) move–at least for now.
