Should Apple Release A New iPad Mini 5 This Year?
It has been almost three years since the last iPad Mini hit stores. The fourth Mini version of Apple’s famed tablet product family continued the blockbuster success of its predecessors. However, the series fell off the radar in the past few years due to the lack of an update from its manufacturer. Yes! we are talking about iPad Mini 5.
Bye iPad Mini?
The long wait in the next upgrade to this iPad series has resulted in many tech experts and analysts concluding that Apple will no longer release a new one. In tablet standards, the fourth Mini version of the iPad is already outdated, with newer Apple releases sporting far better specs.
A newer iPad with upgraded specs and features that is not part of the “Mini” series was already released earlier this year. The model is much cheaper than the already-three year old Mini, which still costs $399. This year’s iPad, on the other hand, is more affordable at $70
Is it perhaps time for Apple to finally release the latest entry in this particular iPad series? Considering that a cheaper iPad from a different series now has better specs and features, the answer to that question is a resounding “yes.”
Could the delay perhaps mean that there will no longer be iPad Mini 5? There is a big chance that it is the case. However, Apple has a track record of breathing life into tech gadget series that have been long thought of as dead so you can never tell.

In related news, there are reports that Apple will have four new iPads to unveil in a big hardware event. There is a possibility that a new 7.9-inch iPad Mini 5 will be part of that, according to Inverse. There will also be one iPad and two iPad Pro models.
