Apple recently launched the new iPad Mini, along with the iPad 4 back in October, and now according to a recent report by Topeka Capital Markets analyst Brian White, Apple are looking to release new models of each device in March.
March would be the one year anniversary of the launch of the iPad 3, and Apple normally releases their new iPad in March, although we saw the slightly updated iPad 4 in October.
Our checks at CES indicate Apple will release the iPad 5 and the second-generation iPad mini this March. The iPad 5 is expected to be lighter and thinner than the iPad 4 that was released in October, while the form factor of the iPad mini should be similar to the first generation iPad mini that debuted in October.
With regards to the iPad Mini, March would seem a little early as the first generation iPad Mini was only launched back in October, which would mean the device would be less than six months old when a new one is launched, of course this is just a rumor at the moment.
Apple has now launched their new iPad Mini, have a look at the difference between iPad and iPad Mini.
