Rumors continue about the devices that Apple will launch during the next year. The latest rumors are focusing on the tablet line that could see two new models. We are talking about the iPad mini 5 and a 10 “iPad but it will be less expensive than the current one.
The news comes from the China Times which in turn reports from the suppliers of components of Apple. According to reports, both the iPad mini 5 and the cheap 10 “iPad should arrive in the first part of the year, but it is not the first time that we hear about these models.
The new iPad mini 5 will have a relatively low price (for Apple’s fees) and should allow the company in Cupertino to resume part of the land sold to the competition. The production in high volumes should start in December 2018. It has been a long time since a new iPad mini is expected considering that the last model was launched in the second half of 2015.
As written above, however, Apple could also introduce a new 10 “iPad that will replace the sixth generation from 9.7”. New will be the design that will provide thinner edges and therefore in line with the latest updates in the range. In order to reduce production costs, no LCD displays will be used in Japan but will switch to Korean partners (such as Samsung or LG).
