Apple iPad Mini 5 Unveiled: Apple A12 CPU, Same Format, Apple Pencil Support

By James A.

Apple’s latest hardware products are iPads, it seems. The Cupertino giant unveiled a new iPad Mini after 4 years of no successor and also an iPad Air 10.5 inch today. We’ve covered the iPad Air already and now let’s see the iPad Mini 5. The newcomer has been so long overdue, that it was considered basically cancelled at some point.

The iPad Mini 5 keeps the format of the predecessor, with an unibody metal shell and thick bezels. It’s got a powerful CPU this time, the Apple A12, from the iPhone XS Max and XS. Apple claims that the performance is 3 times greater than the predecessors and 9 times higher in the graphical department. The screen is expected to be 25% brighter than the iPad Mini 4 and it also offers True Tone tech.

Apple Pencil is supported as well, at least the first gen model. The screen is said to offer 500 nits of brightness and the full specs list looks like this:

  • Display: 7.9 inch, 2048 x 1536 pixels
  • Processor: Apple A12
  • Storage: 64 GB, 256 GB
  • Camera: 8 MP back, 7 MP front
  • Battery: 19.1 Wh
  • Connectivity: audio jack, Lightning, Bluetooth 5.0, 4G, WiFi ac
  • Others: Touch ID fingerprint scanner, stereo speakers

 

We don’t have info about the RAM quantity, but my guess is around 2 or 3 GB. The iPad Mini 5 is going to be priced at $399 and the preorders start today. You’ll find it in shops next week, in Silver, Gray and Rose Gold, starting at $399. The highest end 4G model with 256 GB of storage goes to $679.

iPad Air 10.5 inch 2019 Tablet Unveiled, With Apple A12 CPU

By James A.

Apple couldn’t wait till March 25 when it has a special event scheduled and debuted two new iPads today. One is the iPad Mini 5 and the other is the iPad Air 10.5 (2019) model. Both have an Apple A12 CPU inside and this piece focuses more on the bigger version. Let’s see what it has to offer.

This device is priced at $499 and up and it comes with a chassis that’s slimmer and lighter than the previous affordable iPads. It’s got the same Apple A12 CPU from the iPad Mini 5 and iPhone XS Max, by the way. The device uses an unibody metal case and keeps the Home button and fingerprint scanner. It packs a 10.5 inch True Tone display, plus it comes in gold, silver and space gray.

Apple also debuted a special Smart Keyboard accessory for the device, which is also compatible with a stylus. The product weighs 456 grams and measures 6.1 mm in thickness. It doesn’t have the rumored USB Type-C port, by the way, sticking with Lightning instead.

The screen on board is fully laminated and the full specs of the machine go like this:

  • Display: 10.5 inch, LED, 2224 x 1668 pixels, 500 nits
  • CPU: Apple A12
  • Storage: 64 GB, 256 GB
  • Battery: 30.2 Whr, 10 hours of usage
  • Camera: 8 MP back, 7 MP front
  • Connectivity: WiFi ac, Bluetooth 5.0, 4G
  • Others: Touch ID, stereo speakers, audio jack

The 64 GB version of the device is priced at $499 and the highest priced model is the 4G 256 GB one, at $779. The Smart Keyboard is $159 and the Apple Pencil first gen is compatible with this slate, at $99. The new iPad Air is already up for preorder and reaches shops next week.
