Despite the alleged information about the discontinuity of the iPad Mini line, new rumors indicate that Apple will not leave aside the smallest variant of tablets of the company and can launch it in new design next year, with a lower price, and also sequencing the Traditional Apple iPad with the new 10-inch variant.
According to the information from the China Times, after four years, the iPad Mini can finally get its new generation upgrade. Apple can present the iPad mini in the year 2019 an updated version of the smallest tablet of the line with the latest hardware, new design, and low price.
As pointed out by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple is expected to introduce the device in the first half of 2019, as the model was expected to launch between the end of this year and the beginning of next year, 2019.
The Chinese source reports that the device will hit the market with a low price, so it is possible that Apple will present the device worth below the $399 price tag for the base variant in the United States. Although the price may rise up expediently when it would officially launch in India, due to import taxes and GST charges.
It is not yet clear whether Apple is expected to introduce it in the iPad Pro-like design with TrueDepth facial recognition sensors. Or if it would just get a hardware performance and software upgrade.
