iPad mini 5 release date, specs, new features & UK price rumours

Ashleigh Allsopp | June 23, 2016
Given the rumours around other Apple products, we expect the iPad mini 5 to come out in September 2016, alongside or just after the product launch of the Apple Watch 2 and iPhone 7-line.

iPad mini 5 rumours: Specs

It's believed that the iPad mini 5's thinner design would be made possible by a new, smaller battery, says Cult of Mac: while the mini 5's battery unit may have a lower capacity than the 5,124mAh component in the mini 4, superior battery technology mean it will be able to match its predecessor's real-world battery performance. 

iPad mini 5 rumours: Camera

Apple isn't expected to up the camera quality in the iPad mini 5, so expect 8Mp on the rear and 1.2Mp on the front. We'd like to see a better front-facing camera, though, particularly for FaceTime.

The processor should be improved to an A9 processor over the A8, so we'll see aspeed bump and improved graphics for the iPad mini 5, and we could also see an improvement when it comes to the display's resolution.

We're keeping our fingers crossed that this is the end of the 16GB iPad, and that Apple will instead go for 32GB, 64GB and 128GB models of the iPad mini 5, but there's no evidence to support that yet. We'll simply have to keep on hoping.
