After two years of renewal in the iPhone range and in the iPad Pro, 2019 could be the year of the renewal of the normal iPad. A new rumor suggests that we will see a new iPad mini 5 and a renewal of the iPad of 9.7 inches.
If there are two iPads that can be a success those are the normal iPad and the mini. In the last two years, the cheapest model has sold really well, so it is normal for Apple to think about giving a twist to its design. As for the iPad mini, it was always the entry model, but it has been outdated over the years.
New iPads will arrive in 2019
As reported by China Times this morning, Apple plans to update its two most affordable iPad models this coming 2019. In the case of the iPad is not so strange, we have been seeing new models for two years now, but the news of the iPad mini has been a surprise.
The iPad 2018 has already received an important update this year including a new processor and compatibility with the Apple Pencil. For its part, the iPad mini 4 has not been updated for more than 3 years and, moreover, it is more expensive than the 9.7-inch iPad.
According to this new information, the iPad of 2019 will have a 10-inch screen, or maybe 10.5, so we would be facing an interesting redesign. We’ll see if it continues with the design released with the new iPad Pro or maintains the traditional design of the iPad.
Regarding the iPad mini have not revealed more details but the logical thing would be to update their specifications to match up with his older brother and also add compatibility with the Apple Pencil.
It is not the first time we heard rumors about a new iPad mini, Ming-Chi Kuo has already reported on previous occasions that this device is not dead for Apple. These new models should appear mid-year.
