Is the iPad Mini about to get an upgrade?

Apple, Tablet

There’s a big Apple event happening tonight, which we’re expecting to be all about the Apple Watch… but could the iPad Mini get a look in too?


There was some disappointment at Apple’s keynote last November. Whilst the company announced the iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3, the Mini 3 was a bit too similar to the Mini 2 (the only addition was a TouchID sensor). In fact, the processor inside was nearly identical – sticking with Apple’s A7 processor rather than then newer A8.

Now though we’re hearing rumours courtesy of UberGizmo that Apple could be able to give us an earlier update – boosting the iPad Mini up to the A8 processor, as well as 802.11ac wifi.

So could Tim Cook pull out an all new iPad Mini tonight? Our gut says no, but we wouldn’t expect an update to be too far away.
