There have been countless rumors about what the iPad Mini 5 will have to offer in terms of design, specs, and features. Many people are eager to know what’s in store for them once the successor to the iPad Mini 4 is finally released and rumors have been running rampant. There has been talking that the analysts that look into the future of Apple products aren’t sure themselves, whether Apple will go for a whole new design or stick with what they have already established for the iPad Mini series.
There have been suggestions that the iPad Mini 5 will be very thin, even thinner that the iPad Mini 4, its predecessor, which had a thickness of 6.1 mm. Moreover, it is also said to be thinner that the Samsung Galaxy tab S2 that is at around 5.6 mm. Rumors say that the iPad Mini 5 will be 5 mm thick. With this knowledge, and if it is true, it is normal for fans to worry that the iPad Mini 5’s thinness may affect the tablets performance. If rumors are true, the iPad Mini 5 will be the thinnest tablet ever. It seem possible since the iPad Mini 5 is said to have a 7000 series chassis which will be great to protect the iPad Mini 5 from bending, even if it is incredibly thin. This material has already proven itself and its reliability since it was used to make the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus and they did not fail in that aspect at all.
It is speculated that the iPad Mini 5 may have a 3D touch feature as seen on recent iPhones released by Apple. This pressure sensitive features may be made available for the upcoming iPad Mini 5 and iPad Air 3. Moreover, the fans that are awaiting the arrival of the iPad Mini 5 are hoping that the device will also have a chipset upgrade, from the previous A8 to a much better A9 chip.
With regard to the rumored release date, it is said that the iPad Mini 5 will be made available on March 2017.
