According to some Supply Chain Sources, we could see the Fifth Gen iPad Mini in the first half of 2019. This new iPad mini will replace the old 4th Gen iPad Mini’s which are in the market for a lot of time since 2015. With this launch, we would also see a 10-inch iPad replacing the 6th gen 9.7-inch iPad in March.
As MacRumors reports, supply chain sources told the China Times that Apple is gearing up to launch a fifth-gen iPad mini in the first half of 2019. China Times says the upcoming 10-inch iPad will sport a “narrower frame” than its predecessor and a similar price, according to MacRumors. It’s expected to debut in the second half of 2019.
Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says that the new 5t gen of iPad mini will have a upgraded processor and a cheaper display module.
The $329 6th Gen 9.7-inch iPad had got a lot of attention through reviews for its great performance and Apple Pencil support, so it will be great to see how the new 10-inch iPad which would come in the later half 2019 would replace the predecessor.
