According to rumors, Apple is planning to release the new iPad Mini 5 soon after its usual September launch this year. We remind you that some previous rumors were suggesting that a new iPad Mini will be released early this year, either during the Apple’s March launch event or WWDC 2016.
Unfortunately, the iPad Mini has not seen the light at these two events and even if Apple still has a press-event to launch and reports are suggesting that the upcoming device will be released before the end of 2016, most likely after the September event that the company will hold to unveil its new iPhones.
However, we should tell you that it’s not 100% sure that Apple will release the iPad Mini 5 before the end of the year, but we all know that this company usually prefers to release its products before the holiday rush. In other words, to make sure that this new tablet will hit the stores in December, Apple will need to launch it sometime in September-October 2016.
It is good to know that there are some observers who think that the new iPad Mini is not in the works, as a new iPad Mini usually is released along with a new iPad Air, with slightly lower specifications than the new iPad Air version. In other words, the iPad Mini 5 is rumored to be released along with the rumored iPad Air 3, which was not released yet.
There are also some reports which say that Apple will released a 2016 edition of the iPad Pro, but the iPad Air line-up is almost dead. In other words, there are high chances that we will not see an iPad Air 3 this year and instead we will get a new iPad Pro Mini.
