Initially, iPad Mini 5 was expected to be launched at Apple's September 2016 event because its predecessor, Apple iPad Mini 4 was released in the same month of the previous year.
The hotly anticipated event takes place in March each year, but a date for 2017 has not been confirmed. Expected initial shipments of the new 10.5-inch iPad are likely to reach one million units and are expected to increase up to 1.2 million units a month from the second quarter. The smaller and larger versions of the trio are differentiated enough in form factor, but it's hard to imagine consumers complaining that their 9.7-inch iPad would be so much more useful if only the diagonal measurement was 0.8 inches larger. Although some rumors are claiming that the Cupertino based tech giant will rebrand the iPad Mini line into iPad Pro Mini, but the tech company has yet to provide an official statement regarding the matter.
While it is becoming clear that new iPads are on the horizon, Apple's exact launch plans remain convoluted.
Some sources have indicated delays with shipping out the 10.5-inch iPad Pro this year, so it's even possible that Apple will delay the entire event beyond Spring 2017. The Apple Pro 2017 tablets come with 32GB, 128GB and 256GB of internal memory.
