There is no doubt that on October 16, we will see a new model of iPad Air, then the announcement of the new generation of iPad mini raise questions. However, according to the Japanese blog MacOtakara, a 7.9-inch tablet still show next Thursday, though revolutionary changes are not expected.
In September, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has expressed doubts about the fact that the next generation of iPad mini will be presented this year. Analysts had predicted the emergence of a new model until 2015, at the same time with 12.9-inch iPad Pro. Kuo is rarely wrong, but it may well be just the case.
If you believe the MacOtakara, then on Thursday at the presentation of Apple will introduce iPad Air 2 and updated iPad mini display Retina. And if a larger tablet offers some serious changes, his younger brother will limit Apple in new clothes. Thus, we expect the emergence of a new body colors, probably gold. Also, expect the presentation and new Smart Cover and Smart Case for a miniature tablet with new colors and compatibility with the updated iPad mini.
Of course, even Apple can not afford to limit the updated iPad mini only one golden color and new covers. Tablet will receive biometric sensor Touch ID and A8 processor. It is worth to note that this is a normal A8, rather than the more productive modification A8h that prophesy in iPad Air 2.
A speedy announcement of the new generation of iPad mini with Retina display also indicates the fact that just recently became aware of the postponement of the start of production iPad Pro. Why Apple does not make sense to delay release an update for the popular 7.9-inch Apple tablet.
