Apple unveils new iPad series in bid to stay competitive

Alongside that, rumours are also ripe that Apple is also planning to launch an updated version of iPad mini, named the iPad mini 5.

The new iPad model would be geared up with Apple's latest Bionic chip A12, alongside it would have supported for Apple Pencil and smart keyboard, yet more critically, it would not be able to capitalize the next-gen superfast 5G networks. On the other hand, if the iPad mini 4 already performs well enough to cater to everyday needs and provides enough storage, and if Apple Pencil support doesn't matter, then there's really no incentive in trading up, certainly not in the design department.

The new iPad Air has numerous features the iPad Pro had, including support for the first generation Apple Pencil.

The release of new hardware this week further suggests that the March 25 event will focus on the launch of Apple's Netflix-like streaming service.

Now that we've got pricing and availability info for Apple's new iPad models, are you thinking about buying one? However, they may appeal to consumers looking to adopt some of the functionality of a higher-end iPad Pro, according to Ben Stanton, a senior analyst at Canalys. The new iPad mini costs only HK$3,199 with a full Apple iOS experience and comes with a 7.9-inch screen, while an iPhone XS max is priced at more than HK$9,000 with the same processor but a smaller 6.5-inch screen. The company has ditched the numbers from the branding and is simply calling the new models as the new iPad Air and the new iPad mini respectively.

Apple now has a compelling and properly segmented iPad lineup that stands a good chance of helping this tech company to maintain its recent iPad business momentum. The iPad mini starts at $399 for the Wi-Fi only model and the Wi-Fi + Cellular model will be sold starting $529. Rest of the specifications of the device seem to identical to the iPad Air. Similarly, the iPad mini is also considered an affordable tablet.
