More affordable iPad mini 5 is expected next year

The last iPad mini update was way back in 2015 and with the launch of Apple’s new expensive iPad Pro lineup, it seemed like the company forgot all about the smallest of them all. Not according to a new Chinese source, though.

China Times claims to have inside info about an upcoming iPad mini 5, or at least that’s how they are calling it. The tablet is supposed to replace the current 9.7-inch iPad. The new mini will sport a slightly bigger 10-inch display with minimalist bezels, which in turn means that Apple will swap out the Touch ID for Face ID.

Aside from the rather rough intel, China Times says the device should arrive sometime in the first half of 2019.
