Head to the end for an important update.
On Friday, an important supply chain report from China was discovered. It claimed that Apple will continue to develop the iPad lineup and focus on the affordable variations of the tablet. Cupertino tech giant launched the iPad 6 earlier this year, to counter Google's growing presence in the education sector. This tablet has the A10 processor and has a starting price of $ 329. Now, an alleged leak has discovered, again from China, claiming to show the case of Apple's 2019 iPad Mini upgrade. Take a look below for more details.
Purported iPad Mini 5 Case Leak Shows A 3.5mm Headphone Connector, Speaker and Camera Cut Out
With the iPad 2018 Pro, Apple finally presented its True Depth camera setup on the iPad. Now, as reports for new iPads due to launch in early 2019 begin to surface, the big question is: will Apple also introduce Face ID to the low-powered variants of the tablet? Reports from the supply chain in recent months have suggested that Apple's suppliers have hit the production of the components of the True Depth Camera.

Although today's alleged leakage does not give any clue to this, it has details for the design of the next iPad mini. Apple last upgraded the tablet in 2015, and September 2018 marked three years since the tablet's latest upgrade. Now that the company appears to stabilize revenue, the change may be on the horizon.
Judging by modern standards, the iPad Mini 4 is archaic. It has Apple's A8 processor, which also controls the iPhone 6 array. The A8 is manufactured on the TSMC's 20nm process, and the chip has 2 billion transistors. 2018 The iPhone Series A12 CPU, on the other hand, has 7 billion transistors and a "neural motor" that has 5 TOPS (Trillion Operations Per Second). The iPad Mini 4 (with 128 GB of storage) has a starting price of $ 399, which is ridiculous compared to the iPad 6's entry price.
Moved to today's leakage, it shows that the iPad Mini 5 will retain the 3.5mm earphone jack. In addition, the tablet will also have speakers at the top and bottom. The power button is located on the left side, and Apple will also introduce a greatly enhanced back camera setup. The leak serves as a good confirmation for Friday's report, and we hope that more information will pass from the rumor mill in the future.

As its iPhone upgrade cycle continues to grow, Apple is eager to increase revenue from other segments, services and iPad. Since services haven't matured yet, it's up to the iPad to take up the burden. But will it? Only time can tell. Until then, stay tuned and let us know what you think in the comments below.

Update : Prolific leaker Steve Hemmestoffer believes that this case is based on a two-year-old design from Apple. The design is available December 2016.
