At the beginning of 2019, we found the first photos of a possible iPad mini 5 in pink gold. Since then, the wheel of the rumors did not stop turning.
Precisely yesterday morning, with the help of Ming-Chi Kuo, we anticipated that Apple would renew its entire iPad range with new iPad, iPad mini and iPad Pro products.
And now … we know more details about the iPad mini 5 that Apple would present throughout 2019. As we have been saying in recent weeks, will come to market with the same classic design of the iPad mini 4 to lower costs and its price is more affordable.
A sketch of the iPad mini 5 reveals its possible design
Steve H. McFly, better known on Twitter under the alias @OnLeaks, recently shared a very interesting tweet in which he claimed he had in his possession an Apple iPad mini 5 CAD. According to his own words, there will be no notable external design changes, except for a new location for the microphone that will be centered in the upper rear.
Just got my hands on alleged #iPadMini5 CAD. If legit (can't vouch at 100%), there is indeed (just as rumored) no external design changes (except of relocated mic, centered on upper back panel). In short, it will very likely be a specs bump only update… pic.twitter.com/z5XuBKZVmN

“I HAVE IN MY HANDS A SUPPOSED CAD OF # IPADMINI5. IF IT’S TRUE (I CAN NOT CONFIRM IT 100%), THERE WILL NOT BE (AS WAS RUMORED) ANY EXTERNAL DESIGN CHANGE (EXCEPT THE RELOCATED MICROPHONE, CENTERED ON THE UPPER REAR PANEL). I MEAN, IT’S PROBABLY JUST AN UPDATE WITH IMPROVED SPECIFICATIONS. ”
We will keep an eye on all the news about the iPad mini 5 of 2019. In principle, it will still have a 7.9-inch screen, Touch ID, Lightning connector and 3.5 mm jack for headphones.
