However, it has already been 14 months since the launching of the current tablet and Apple appears to have no intention of releasing the new iPad Mini 5 anytime soon. Nonetheless, many fans believe that the company will reveal the highly anticipated tablet in early 2017.

During Apple's October event, tech fans expected the company to unveil the new iPad Mini 5; however, the company has a different plan and revealed the new MacBook Pro. According to a report by MacWorld, the new iPad Mini 5 will most definitely be launched during the company's March 2017 affair alongside other hardware products like the iPad Pro 2. If rumors prove to be true, a March 2017 launching would be unusual for Apple's popular iPad Mini line since it normally unveils a new model in October.
