iPhone 5 and iPad mini – What the People Want

Read about the new iPad Air and iPad mini 2

If we’re to believe the rumours, the iPhone 5 and iPad mini are set to launch within the next three months. Apple fans are slavering, Android fans are sighing and the rest of us are looking at our bank balances and wincing. But do normal folks really care about the next-gen Apple devices?

We took to the streets of London to find out what randomly-selected members of the public think about the iPhone 5 and iPad mini. What do they want from the next iPhone? Do they even know the iPad mini (supposedly) exists? Let’s find out…

The latest intel from the rumour mill says that the iPhone 5 will have a 4in screen, larger than the current model’s 3.5in number. They phone’s a little longer than the iPhone 4S, but isn’t much wider.

The iPad mini, on the other hand, is a completely new proposition from Apple. It’s a 7.85in tablet rocking the same resolution as the first and second-gen iPads, 1,024 x 768 pixels. And it’ll apparently be a lot cheaper than the full-size tab – perfect if £400 has to date been a little too rich for your blood.
