The rumour mill seems fairly convinced that the iPad mini will launch at Apple’s “We’ve got a little more to show you” event this coming Tuesday.
We’re also expecting a 13in Retina MacBook Pro and new Mac Minis, and now we’re being told to brace ourselves for – wait for it – a new new iPad. What the…?
The full-sized iPads had settled into a nice annual launch/release pattern, with the next iPad generally expected around March next year – five months from now, say.
However, according to anonymous sources of 9to5mac, we should in fact expect a spanking new full-sized iPad on Tuesday.
But if, like me, you picked up the new iPad back in March, don’t start tearing your beard off just yet. See, this new iPad is expected to be much the same, ‘cept with an iPhone 5-style Lightning connector, and proper global 4G.
Crucially, it’ll retain the same price structure, so that’ll be £399 for a 16GB Wi-Fi only iPad, all the way up to £659 if you want a slice of that 4G action and 64GB storage.
Cook knows what they’ll call it, as the latest instalment was of course the “new iPad”. Are we looking at the newer iPad? Or perhaps the newest iPad? We’ll find out on Tuesday, supposably.
