The Apple iPad Mini 5 is expected to be the next big release by the Cupertino-based tech giant. Needless to say, there are a lot of tech fans who are awaiting this device, the device is rumored to be released by 2017 although Apple has remained mum about it. The Apple iPad Mini 5 release date is delayed due to the fact that Apple may be focusing their time, resources and effort on the laptop line of Apple, the Apple MacBook Pro 2016 as well as the iMac 2016 and high hopes for the MacBook Air 2016, too.


Some fans may say that the Apple iPad Mini 5 is already overdue, since the device’s predecessor, the Apple iPad Mini 4 was released in September 2015, and yet there was no word about the product during this year’s September event. According to Macworld, the possible release date for the Apple iPad Mini 5 would be in March 2017.

It is quite unusual that there is a lack of information leaks that have spread with regard to the Apple iPad Mini 5. As per Neurogadget, there is a possibility that the Apple iPad Mini 5 and the Apple iPad Pro 2 may be merged. As for the specs, there are tech enthusiasts that speculate that if the merging does happen, the device will have an A9X processor under the hood and a 3D pressure sensitive screen as well. The Apple iPad Mini 5 may also have a 7.9-inch Retina display along with a 7000-series aluminum shell thus making the tablet both aesthetically pleasing and durable at the same time. The new tablet will also be thinner that the Apple iPad Mini 4 with an 8MP rear camera and a 1.2MP front-facing camera equipped with True Tone Flash technology.
