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.

Apple iPad Mini 5 is Back, with a Leaked Case, Render and Info

By Radu Iorga

We heard this month that Apple was bringing back the iPad Mini series next year and also launching a 10 inch iPad possibly with an affordable price. Now we learn there’s also a case for the device out there, for the iPad Mini 5 and also a render. Let’s check them out.

The iPad Mini series has been asleep for 3 years now and the last model was the iPad Mini 4. Speaking of which, the iPad Mini 5 should feature a similar design to it, but also with some iPad Pro elements. There’s talk of a Smart Connector and 4 speakers on board, plus a camera with flash. The case from the picture supposedly belongs to a 2016 iPad Mini prototype, so we shouldn’t read too much into it. The render also feels pretty similar to the iPad Mini 4 to be honest. Famous designer Ben Geskin made it.

It’s very likely that the whole design concept evolved over the years and perhaps drew even more inspiration from the latest iPad Pro models. The iPad Mini 5 is expected to bring a new CPU, extra RAM and storage, perhaps a screen with True Tone, quad speakers and I’d also like to see Apple Pencil support on it. It could truly be a great gaming device.

Not very sure about the bezels, since the large ones from the top and bottom make the device grippable.
