iPad mini 3 to launch in the coming weeks

With the iPhone 6 and Apple Watch having been formally unveiled earlier this week, latest reports have suggested an iPad mini 3 will also be announced before the end of the year.

While an iPad Air 2 has been widely tipped for a late 2014 unveiling, it has now been suggested that a third-generation 7.9-inch Apple tablet will also join a busy Q4 for the Cupertino-based company. It had previously been suggested that Apple would stick with the existing iPad mini with Retina display until 2015.

“We previously thought Apple would not release a new version of the iPad mini this year, but we now think Apple will launch an upgraded version with the same form factor,” KGI Securities analyst Ming-chi Kuo stated.

Having spoken with claimed insiders, they added: “We think the upgraded iPad Air will be launched earlier in 2014 than the iPad Air was in 2013.

This could see Apple introduce new tablet offerings as early as next month.

Given that the iPad Air and iPad mini currently dominate tablet sales, it is not expected that new models will introduce any radical improvements.

Past rumours have suggested that the iPhone’s TouchID fingerprint sensor could be added to the tablet line. Further additions would likely see the iPhone 6’s iOS 8 operating system and new A8 processor thrown into the mix.
