The much hyped iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C have released. Now, Apple may announce the arrival two of its other major products namely, iPad Mini 2 and iPad 5. On Sept 10 which was the launch day for iPhone 5S and IPhone 5C, the Cupertino firm had also announced iOS7 but they did not talk anything about forthcoming iPad models.
Apple has not rolled any information on the next gen tablets but it is certain that they are going to release new iPads very soon. In 2012, Apple had revealed iPad Mini and iPad 4 before the beginning of vacation period. Apple skipped the announcement of next gen iPads in March and with the year entering its last quarter, it is certain that Apple may soon announce the new iPad models.
We feel that Apple will hold the media event for iPad Mini 2 and iPad 5 in October and one week prior to the event, the company will send out invites for the event. October 15 is rumored to be the launch date of iPad Mini 2. The iPad Mini was announced in the month of October in 2012
Apple did not offer Retina Display on the original iPad Mini. It is being rumored that the design of the iPad Mini 2 will be similar to that of original device. This means Apple is going to work in boosting the hardware of the device. One of the most requested and a major feature that is expected to come with iPad Mini 2 is Retina Display. The product will also come with enhanced camera and processor.
Apple surprised the tech world by not announcing pre-order date for iPhone 5S. In the past, Apple has allowed prospective customers to place pre-orders before the release date. By the way, Apple has allowed pre-orders for iPhone 5C. So, it is difficult to predict whether Apple will offer pre-orders for iPad Mini 2.
As far as priced is concerned, we predict that the Cupertino company will offer a starting price of 330USD for 16GB Wi-Fi edition. The pricing of the other variants will more or less same as the price it has offered previously.
