In the past months, tech blogs have been talking a lot about the iPad Mini 2 but nothing much has been said about the iPad 5 release date.
Well, the recent news is that Apple may likely announce the release date of iPad 5 in October. Still, we don’t have any concrete information on Apple iPad Mini 2 release date.
According to many tech analysts, it does not seem that Apple will be launching the Retina Display version of iPad Mini 2 any time soon. The mini tablet is expected to come out of the closet in the first quarter of 2014. Still there are many analysts who are contradicting the news and speculate that the iPad Mini 2 will arrive before the year comes to an end.
In the next month, an Apple event is going to be held on October 15th. It is anticipated that Apple will launching new iPads during this event. Now many tech experts are confirming on the fact that the iPad 5 will release on Oct 15th but the release of the iPad Mini 2 will be purchased further to occur sometime later. Low manufacturing volumes of iPad Mini displays are said to be the issue that has caused such a delay.
Some even predict that iPad Mini 2 with Retina Display will be unveiled on Oct 15th but the release date of the tablet will happen later in this year or in the first quarter of 2014. The iPad 5 rumors which has suddenly become stronger than ever before indicate that the Oct 15 will be the day it will be unveiled.
Recently, a new video was found doing rounds on the web. It shows Smart Covers that have been specially designed for iPad 5. Smart Covers are covers for iPads that have been produced by Apple. The new covers do not appear quite different from the covers made for older iPads. However, this time around, the Smart Covers are available in wide range of colors like red, pink, grey, orange, green, white, black and blue. The only major difference between the new Smart Covers and the ones that were made for iPad 4 is that they are quite thinner.
The arrival of the new video clear points to the fact that new iPad 5 is soon to arrive and notably the device is thinner and lighter than the predecessor model. The October 15 date is not too far now and hopefully very soon iPad 5 and iPad Mini will be unveiled. In the meantime, it would be great to see what you think about the new iPads.
