Apple iPad Mini 5: New leaked images suggest Apple may have plans to revamp the iPad range and launch at least two new devices in early 2019. One of them is likely to be the iPad Mini 5 that sports a 7.9-inch display screen. The other could be the successor of the 9.7 inch iPad that could be launched with a marginally increased screen size of 10 inches.
Leaked Images of Protective cover for the iPad Mini 5
This piece of information is derived from a photograph which supposedly shows a protective case for the iPad Mini 5. Now, the aspect that draws your immediate attention is the space provided for the camera on the top left in the image. One may be tempted to conclude that the reason is Apple is planning to fit two cameras in the iPad. But a more logical conclusion would be that the slot will house a camera and a flash. Some of the other specs you can guess from the protective cover are that the 3.5 mm audio out jack is very much there and that there may be a dual-speaker system, possibly delivering stereo sound.
Apple Looking to Expand the Sale of iPads
While the iPhones bring in the volumes in millions in terms of sales worldwide, Apple turned its focus on the iPads in 2018 and sometimes into the year announced some drastic price cuts across iPad models to boost sales. There is a sense that the 9.7 inch iPad did register some impressive numbers and releasing it as a new 10-inch model may do the trick to ramp up the volumes in 2019.
The other iPad Mini 5 model too, has not received visible updates for a while and it makes sense to have an all-new 7.9 inch iPad as an option to the customers right when Samsung will introduce the 7.3-inch foldable smartphone. Though the buyers for both the products may not be the same, it does throw an option with the iPad scoring better on many counts except that you cannot fold and keep it in your pocket. The market works in mysterious ways and you will never know how these things pan out.
