New Entry-Level iPad and iPad mini 5 Expected in First Half of 2019: DigiTimes

Rumors say Apple is seemingly set to launch at least two new iOS devices in the first half of 2019. If DigiTimes reports are to be believed, the tech giant is coming up with new entry-level iPad and iPad mini 5 at the beginning of 2019.

According to DigiTimes, Apple is likely to release at least two new iOS products in the first half of 2019. As per the reports from the media, touch-screen suppliers are all set to supply components for two new iPads in the first couple of months of 2019.

Emphasizing the dimensions of two tablets, the reports mention that they might be ‘entry-level’ models – an update to iPad mini 4 and an update to the 9.7-inch iPad, which was available at $329 in 2018.

Apple Plans to Launch Two Entry-Level iPads in 2019

Last year, famous analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted that Apple might release a new iPad mini with a cheaper display panel and a smarter processor.

A Chinese media, in the same line, reported ‘low-priced’ iPad mini. The media indicated that the iOS device might not come with striking hardware design. Apparently, Apple wanted to keep this iPad mini a low-cost device.

In the same report, Chinese media indicated that the Cupertino-based tech giant is likely to replace 9.7-inch iPad with a new 10-inch model. However, this would be redesigned chassis and nothing more than that.

Perhaps, Apple might go with squarer sides as found in the latest iPad Pro. This could enable users to use iPad Pro with the second-generation Apple Pencil.

Usually, Apple updates its $329 iPad in March or April; thus, there is a strong chance the rumors turn out true in 2019.

If you are an iPad mini fan, you can expect a spec bump, but don’t look for significant improvements apart from internal component upgrades.

Signing off…

I repeatedly mention in my articles that rumor before any major product release has become an order for Apple. Whether these rumors are generated by the company itself or spread by Apple fanboys (read bloggers), it takes our discretion to measure the seriousness of such stories.
