iPad mini has got great success and its sales graph and popularity is very impressive. Since last year of its launch it has become the most popular tablet around the world.
As it holds the brand presence of Apple and its software and hardware so it’s amazing. The only thing which disappointed people about iPad mini is that it was not having the Retina display. Apple did this to keep the price of the device cheap.
But now, Apple will soon the tablet line up with iPad mini 2 that will have upgraded features and hardware. I’m here with all the iPad mini 2 rumors and release date stuff that you’re looking for.
iPad mini 2 Rumors
If I go along with all rumors which looks impressive and as per my tablet experience is concerned then iPad mini 2 will have following features. These are the iPad mini 2 specs and features.
iPad mini 2 Design – design will be the same and also the shape. Apple will continue with the same display size and dimension i.e. 7.9 inch display. I think design of the iPad mini is perfect so there is no harm in continuing the same design in the iPad mini 2’s design.
Display – it will have retina display for which people are waiting for and the display will have IPS panel measuring 7.9 inch diagonally. The resolution is surely going to be increase and hopefully we may see resolution of 2048×1536 pixels and off course it’ll support multi touch.
iPad mini 2 CPU – Apple has not started using quad core processor till now but it’s high time for it to be used as all the tablets and smartphones these days are coming with quad core processors. So, iPad mini 2 will have a new Ax processor that will have quad core processor and dedicated graphics card.
OS – Rumors are going on that Apple will change its iOS and will present a new look for the users this year. I think it is true because its being long time that Apple has not changed the basic OS look.
Camera – The rear camera will be updated with 8MP iSight camera and front will be having 2MP camera sensor. Both the cameras will be able to record full HD videos with all the features that Apple provides to the iPhone 5.
Connectivity – it will be available in two versions. One will be only Wi-Fi and other will be Wi-Fi + Cellular. Cellular one will support LTE cellular network. Apart from cellular and Wi-Fi it will have Bluetooth and NFC. Now NFC will be the new feature to be included in any Apple device till now.
iPad mini 2 Release Date and Price
According to lots of reports, iPad mini 2 is already developed and it’s now under manufacturing as Apple needs to maintain a good number of devices ready before launching it.
iPad mini 2 launching ceremony is expected to be there in around July or August, 2013 and after the launching of it then Apple will move on to the iPhone 5S.
The price of iPad mini 2 is seems to be around same which is current price of iPad mini. Apple will definitely drop the price of iPad mini after announcing the second mini tablet.
It is also possible that Apple may launch it with iPhone 5S. But I’m only excited about the new iOS.
