The upcoming iPad was expected by Apple fans to be released during September 2016, as its previous model the iPad Mini 4, was released in the same month of 2015. This debut was a month earlier than the scheduled one. As the expected iPad Mini 5 was not unveiled in the recently held Apple's event last September, fans of Apple products are expecting the iPad Mini 5 to be launched this month, however, according to a source, Apple event is slated to take place on 4th of April. The Cupertino Company always organizes its spring event in March for the past few years and the report claims that the new iPad is said to launch on the next spring event for the company.

Apple iPad Mini 5: Possible Design And Specifications

Apple is rumored to be using Series 7000 aluminum for all new iPad lineups. The new iPad mini 5 said to be protected with an aluminum body. To be more specific, the 7000-series aluminum chassis allow the iPad to be thinner and more durable, the same materials used for the iPhone 6S and 7, which are stable and lighter compared to the lower grade aluminum used in other products. The iPad mini 5 is more likely going to look similar to the iPad mini 4, with the same size of a 7.9in retina display. Also, it's been rumored to be 5mm thick and the iPad mini 5 will come with a smaller-capacity battery in order to fit into 5mm frame. The upcoming iPad is expected to be powered by the A9 and M9 motion coprocessors and will come with iOS 10 pre-installed, and this will surely add a raft of new features and some tweaks to the interface design.

New Thrilling Features

Furthermore, rumors circulating the internet said that Apple will introduce a Rose Gold color option, as it has done elsewhere in its previous products line-up. New thrilling features such as 3D Touch, water-resistant, Apple Pencil, iTouch ID fingerprint scanner, Smart Connector which connects to a keyboard, Fast charging and more are expected. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo issued a report a couple of months ago suggesting that Apple would announce three new iPads in March 2017: a 12.9-inch successor to the iPad Pro, a new 10-10.5-inch "high-end model," and a 9.7-inch "low-priced variant."
