Apple is tipped to release two new low-cost iPads in 2019, including a new iPad mini, which hasn’t been updated since 2015.
According to a Bloomberg report, Apple plans to release an updated version of its lower-cost iPad with a 10-inch screen, faster processor that retains the Lightning port, hinting at a launch in the coming months.
Citing sources familiar with the plans, the report also states that Apple is working on a “new, cheaper iPad mini”, Apple’s smallest tablet which hasn’t been updated since 2015.
Apple’s next version of iOS, iOS 13 is also reported to include iPad-specific updates including a new home screen, improved file management, and “the ability to tab through multiple versions of a single app like pages in a web browser.”
Apple recently announced its iPad Pro with Face ID and gesture controls, which may make an appearance on these rumoured tablets.
