Apple’s vision does not always coincide with the desires of consumers, or these desires are simply not converted into sales, but it often pulls with the products that fans ask for. This was the case with the MacBook Air update, and the same happens with the new iPad Mini. And, probably, the fact that the new version of the small tablet has not been released since 2015 has its own logic, but there is more and more information on the network about the planned update next year.
So, there were photos of silicone covers for the tablet. The cut-outs suggest that it will look like an iPad mini 4, but it will get better stereo speakers and a main camera (either with two sensors or with a flash). There is, unfortunately, information that these cases are already 2 years old. Nevertheless, you need to wait for 2019, in the first half of which we can expect the announcement of the new iPad mini with small frames, like the last iPad Pro.

As expected, Apple showed updated MacBook Air, Mac mini and iPad Pro, which many did not wait for in September. Further on the latter. For the first time in a long time, the Cupertín people changed the design of their devices, if you can talk like that about rectangles covered with glass. Frames tablets are even smaller – the same thickness around the perimeter. The physical button “Home” is gone.
Total Apple showed two versions of the iPad Pro: with a screen diagonal of 11 and 12.9 inches. The marketing name of the displays is Liquid Retuna. Thickness also decreased by 15%. The tablets work on the Apple A12X Bionic system – still one of two processors on the market, made on the 7 nm process technology with its own dedicated Neural Engine, which provides record performance. The internal storage can be 64, 256, 512 or 1024 GB.
Interestingly, the company refused to use the Lightning connector. Now here is a standard USB-C, with which you can charge, for example, your iPhone. Accurate data on battery capacity was not reported, but they should work up to 10 hours. Instead, the fingerprint scanner uses Face ID, with which you can unlock the tablet even in horizontal orientation.
