iPad Mini 4, the next generation tablet is expected to be a major overhaul over its predecessor iPad Mini 3. Tech geeks in the cyber space agree to this fact unanimously as iPad Mini 3 (launched last year) didn’t come with any out of the box update, expecting the inclusion of fingerprint sensor and an added color option.

Moreover, in comparison to all the tablets that was released last year by major brands, the performance of iPad Mini 3 was not up to the mark. Tablets offered by other brands had the same features and were available at a lesser price. Thus tech geeks are expecting iPad Mini 4 to come with stunning features that is going to make the whole world awestruck once again. Here is a round up on the features, specification and other aspects of the rumored iPad Mini 4:
iPad Mini 4 Release Date
Each and every year, the next generation iPad Mini is released in the month of October or November. Therefore, we are hoping that Apple is going to follow the same trend this year as well. We are expecting iPad Mini 4 to be released in the month of October or November, 2015.
Some tech geeks are expecting that we will get the first glimpse of iPad Mini 4 in the WWDC in June along with iOS 9 and the next generation OS X. However, we neither heard of any official announcement regarding the regarding the release date of iPad Mini nor did we see any leaked images of the gadget. Therefore, we are not really convinced about the June release date speculation.

Moreover, there are also chances that iPad Mini 4 would not be released this year at all. Last year, two variants of iPhones were released. The iPhone 6 Plus came with a 5.5 inch screen which makes it only a few inch less than the 7.9 inch iPad Mini. Apple might have wanted the spotlight to shine on iPhone 6 and that’s why it didn’t bring about much change in the iPad Mini 3 features and size. So this year Apple might change the release date of iPhone 7 and iPad Mini 4 so that these two gadgets get enough time and attention that it deserves.
We will keep updating the readers as soon as we get more news about the release date of iPad Mini 4.
iPad Mini 4 Specifications
While a group of techies are of the opinion that iPad Mini 4 will be powered A8X processor that is presently being used in the iPad Air 2, others are of the opinion that iPad Mini 4 and iPhone 7 are going to be powered by the same advanced processor i.e. A9X. We would not be surprised to see iPad Mini with A9X processor. The last generation iPad Mini has earned a lot of bad points and to make up for that Apple might take this step so that Apple’s this product line is back with a bang in the market.
Rumor has it, the advanced processor is going to be supported by 2GB RAM. This will definitely be an upgradation from the 1GB RAM of iPad Mini 3 and would imply that the gadget is going to provide the end users with better and smooth video calling experience as well as browsing experience.
We are quite sure that the iPad Mini 4 will be work on iOS 9 platform. Though there has been no official confirmation, but we are pretty sure that Apple is going to power all its next generation products with the latest operating system to be on the spotlight and have a firm footing against all its competitors. iOS 9 will be unveiled before the world in the WWDC and since chances of iPad Mini to be released before that are really rare, we would really disappointed if the next generation iPad Mini does not come along with the latest iOS.
Features of iPad Mini 4
Last year the world had witness the release of the world’s slimmest iPad Air, the third generation of iPad Air and we are pretty sure that this gadget cannot afford to be anymore thinner. This development has led the tech geeks to conjure this idea that this year they are going to see the slimmest iPad Mini.
There would not be much improvisation on the screen size of iPad Mini as then it is going to transcend in the genre of the iPad Air category Apple product. So that make us believe that iPad Mini 4 is going to be of more or less the same size of iPad Mini 3 i.e. it will come with a screen size of about 7.9 inch.
Other add on features that we are hopeful to see in iPad Mini are the Touch ID Technology that is going to make this gadget a lot more safe and personal. And we are also hopeful that Apple’s pay support would be made available to this gadget. Integration of this feature would make online transaction using this gadget much easier and far more secured.
iPad Mini 4 Price
Though it is really difficult to speculate about the price of iPad Mini 4 right now, but I think it will come with more or less the same price as that of iPad Mini 3 (at the time of its release), i.e. around $400. Some tech geeks are of the opinion that iPad Mini 4 will come at a lesser price. Well, we would really happy if their speculation turns out to be true as then we would get the opportunity to grab this awesome tablet at a throw away price.
There are also rumors that after the release of iPad Mini 4, Apple will discontinue selling the first and third generation of iPad Mini. Only iPad Mini 2 will be available to the users at a much less price. fitbit discount
