Since the iOS 7 has been already announced to arrive, by this fall, Apple Inc. is planning to release the iPad 5, and later on the iPad mini 2. It will be priced at about $620 and is expected to be lighter and leaner than any of its predecessors. The iPhone 5 will have an aluminum casing that will come in champagne gold. According to leaks from Apple, the iPad 5 may also have an aluminum casing with the same color.
However, all the information that is doing the rounds may be nothing but rumors, although these are based on credible information from staff members of the company. The iPad 5 will have a rear camera, just like its predecessor, but will have a higher megapixel capacity thanks to the new A7 processor and the new iOS operating system. Already the use of the new processor and operating system has been incorporated into the iPhone 5 which has made it leap, in terms of performance, compared to the predecessors. The same can be expected of the iPad 5. The device will also have GPS capability in the iPad packs.
iPad 5 release date is also rumored to offer up to 128 GB of RAM. The release of the iPad 5 will be set in a manner to try to beat the stiff competition that Apple is getting from Android tablet manufacturers. In China and other medium economies, Android devices have taken over the tablet and Smartphone markets. This will make it very difficult for Apple to penetrate these markets. In these markets, the penetration of Apple devices has been minimal, and they are looking for ways in which to turn this sad state of affairs around.
According to experts, Apple may get its market, which had been taken over by Samsung products, once they release the new iPad 5 and iPad mini 2. They will be a step ahead of Samsung when it comes to delivering top-notch personal computing and communications devices.
Rumors have it that Wacom, the company behind the S-pen, will also create a similar device for the new generation iPad. There are great applications which can use a stylus for creation and production of new media, and the iPad wants to incorporate these applications into their new devices. This may be the reason why there is a delay in the launch of the iPad 5 and iPad mini 2. For now speculations are rife, and this is the only information that users have to go by when trying to figure out the cost of a new iPad 5 or iPad mini 2.
The Apple iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C release dates are slated to be unveiled in the September. It is the same time when Samsung will unleash its Galaxy Note 3. Some are of the view that the even in which the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C will be unveiled, in the same event iPad 5 will be released too. Also, there is no major update on the iPad Mini 2. However, iPad Mini 2’s competitor, the new models of Amazon Kindle Fire are expected to come out in the market very soon.
