Apple is expected to launch several devices before the year ends. Reports said, the Cupertino-based American company is set to release some of the most talked about devices in September including the iPhone 7, Apple Watch 2 and the iPad Mini 5. And all of these might hit the stores this fall.

More Power Efficient

According to Neurogadget, Apple has confirmed that the new iPad Mini will be powered by A9 processor, which will basically give a better power management. This is a great addition as the previous version with 5124 mAh battery with A8 processor didn't really reach the top among other tablets during its release.

Thinner Yet Stronger

According to Mobile & Apps, the new iPad Mini 5 is said to come with a smaller battery. Therefore it will have thinner design and would only be 5 mm thick.

More Possible Features

The iPad Mini 5 is said to support a 3D Touchscreen feature like the new iPhone 7. It won't have a 3.5mm earphone jack, thus needs you to use wireless headphones/earphones to connect. There are also reports stating that Apple might have improve the display of the iPad Mini 5.

Another feature of the new iPad is that it will aready be in iOS 10. And will sport an 8 MP primary camera and a 1.2 MP selfie shooter.

Though there are still no official confirmation about the display, resolution and its screen quality, it is much expected that the new iPad Mini 5 will be a lot better than its predecessor. For starters, a larger screen resolution is really necessary these days especially since Apple knows that the competition now is a lot tighter compared to when the first iPad Mini rolled out.
