The tech fan base is hugely disappointed over Apple's failure to unveil the iPad Mini 5 this year. However, recent reports suggest that the tech giant is working to deliver high-end functions for users to enjoy, thus the delay.

Huge Changes in Store for Fans

According to recent news on the Apple iPad Mini 5, the follow-up to the iPad Mini 4 will come with big changes and one of which is the Smart Connector. It will allow consumers to make use of keyboards. The Smart Connector can also be used for a mouse.

iPad Mini 5 Coming with a Smart Connector?

Previous Apple iPads seemed to have a huge problem: the lack of a connector. With the latest reports pointing to a Smart Connector on the way, consumers can agree that the issue has been resolved. However, Apple has yet to confirm the speculations on the upcoming iPad 5 Mini.

Flip Function to be Integrated on the Next Generation iPad?

Aside from the alleged Connector, the iPad Mini 5 is also rumored to come with a high-end feature for its display. The next-gen iPad is rumored to bring about the biggest change in the history of iPads: a flexible display.

Apple is allegedly working to deliver an iPad that features a similar function to the flip phones that were once very popular among mobile users. If this happens, fans can expect the iPad Mini 5 to fit in baggy pockets or small purses.

If the Apple iPad Mini 5 will indeed crash into the market with a design that allows for flipping and folding, it could be the biggest breakthrough in tablet history. Adding to this is the prediction that the iPad Mini 5 will support 3D Touch technology.

3D Touch Technology on the Way?

The rumored 3D Touch technology will allow iPad Mini 5 owners to have a more improved experience in terms of controlling the interface. It will also improve user experience with display, especially for those who like to play games on their tablets.

When Will the iPad Mini 5 Arrive?

The Apple iPad Mini 5 is expected to arrive sometime early or mid-2017. Stick with Game N' Guide for more updates on the highly anticipated tablet.
