iPad Pro mini or iPad Mini 5?

One of the biggest questions regarding Apple's upcoming new tablet is whether it will be an iPad Pro mini or an iPad Mini 5. Reports are tending towards the coexistence of both, albeit most of them think that the iPad Pro is unlikely to release a mini version just yet. But should it come, it's expected to come at a measly 7.9-inch screen.

The iPad mini 5, on the other hand, has been anticipated for more than a year now. Following the spectacular release and reception to the iPad mini 4, Apple lovers around the world have been wondering what could Apple have in store for its flagship mini tablet successor. It's also rumored to sport a 7.9-inch body, and boasts a 5mm-thin body. The iPad Mini 5 is also said to overhaul its chassis into the 7,000-series aluminum that now houses the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

Upgrades, release dates

Regardless of which model comes out, the iPad Pro mini or the iPad Mini 5 are believed to sport the 3D-pressure sensitive touch screen, with the latest iOS 10 and A9 chip processors, dust- and waterproof body, as well as the same jackless feature found in Apple's latest flagship handsets, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, according to MacWorld. Both models are expected to launch in March 2017.
