Mac fans continue to anticipate the release of the iPad Mini 5. A lot of people were expecting it this month since the iPad Mini 4 was launched at generally the same time a year ago. To everyone's dismay, it was a no-show, and the Apple Watch 2 and the iPhone 7 were the only ones unveiled. Because of that, fans are left still speculating when the successor of the iPad Mini 4 might come out.

iPad Mini 5 Projected Release Date

The tech giant did not give any information in regards to the device but as theories were swirling, the iPad Mini 5 is most likely going to be revealed at an event on March 2017. The reason why this theory makes sense is that Apple has been known to launch new devices in March, so this is surely a possibility.

Specs and features

In terms of the device's specs and features, credible reports state that the iPad Mini 5 will feature a pressure-sensitive 3D Touch feature. This implies that the device will be more efficient, resulting in increased productivity for users. Besides that, the up and coming Apple tablet is said to don a 7.9-inch retina display.

Some other rumors also point that the iPad Mini 5 will be thinner than its predecessors.From the standard 6.1 millimeters thin, the iPad Mini 5 will be just 5 mm. This led to speculations that the device will also remove the 3.5 mm jack like what Apple did with the iPhone 7.

Reports also said that it will be equipped with the enhanced A9 processor which comes with a 12-core 7th-generation PowerVR graphics. It will be packed with a 32 GB built-in storage and 3 GB of RAM. The new tablet is also speculated to be waterproof and dustproof.

The cameras will remain the same with an 8-megapixel back camera and 1.2-megapixel front camera. Right now, nothing is clear yet so fans should not take these speculations with a grain of salt.
