Features that iPad 5 is rumored to have

It has been a great 2012 for Apple fans. First came the iPad 4, then the IPhone 5 and lastly they gave us a pleasant surprise in the form of IPad Mini. Even the iPad 4 was a surprise given that iPad 3 was released only seven months before that. And, given that the iPad Mini was released only sometime back, the big question is about when iPad 5 will be released and what are the new things that we can expect to see.

Analysts say that Apple might want to go in for an early 2013 release given the dynamics of the tablet market. iPad now sees stiff competition with Microsoft releasing Surface and Google releasing its Nexus 10. Therefore, it is being said that Apple needs to reinvent the iPad to ensure they remain well ahead in the race. Of course, it goes without saying that the next generation iPad has got to be the best with respet to looks, design and specifications.

We bring some of the possible features that might be added to the iPad 5.

Display: The iPad 3 and iPad 4 displays have remained almost identical. Although at the moment, the iPad display is as good as it gets, in the iPad 5 we might desire better readability, brightness of screen and better power efficiency.

Processor Capabilities: The iPad 4 is still in a dual core stage just like the iPhone 5 and continues to run on Apple’s A6. Although A6 is supposed to be twice as fast as A5. However, running the iPad 5 on A6 with a slower processor capability will cause problems like heating when you run high memory applications. Therefore, it has become quite imperative for Apple to introduce a quad core in the iPad 5.

Camera: The iPad 4 and iPad Mini brought with it front and rear cameras. Including the front facing camera gave a much better Facetime and Skype experience to users. Both versions have the same 5MP camera on the rear side. The iPad 5 might be better with a higher resolution front facing camera for better Facetime. Also, in the iPad 4 users have noticed shaking issues due to image stabilization while taking a picture. Apple should iron out these issues in the iPad 5.

A/V Output: The new iPad 4 brought some better audio and video output capabilities. Despite that, it does not have stereo speakers like the ones in the Macbook. A great addition to the iPad 5 would be stereo speakers for a better A/V experience. The iOS 5 saw a feature called Airplay to make the gaming experience greater than the pervious versions. However, in the iOS 6, the Airplay hasn’t improved greatly. This is also because iOS 6 did not have the best transceivers to support better Airplay.

These features will still want Apple fans to want more out of the iPad at the same time stunning them with what it can offer.

IPad Mini versus iPad 5

IPad Mini has been a huge rage ever since its launch few months back. Some analysts also say that it ate quite a chunk of the share of the success of iPad 4. However, will it be able to stand in front of the fifth generation of iPad which is rumored to be launched in 2013? Every product of Apple is considered to be a masterpiece in itself. The products score well on both the technicalities as well as the design. The launch of the iPad 4 happened only a few months after the iPad 3 which was quite surprising. Although an advanced version, critics still think that it isn’t much different from iPad 3. Due to this, there are higher expectations from iPad 5 which is due for release around early 2013.

In addition to the existing pressure, the iPad 5 will definitely be compared its miniature version, the iPad Mini. Given that iPad Mini is doing so well in the market, it could be a competitor to the bigger iPad versions.


iPad 5 gives you a complete experience

If you want to compare the iPad 5 with iPad Mini, you have to first know that these are products belonging to different categories. They have been made for different target section. However, if you want to be sure of the choice you make, it might help to understand the similarities and differences between them.

1. The retina display on the full sized screen is sure to give you a great viewing experince. Many users who first got to experience the retina display on the iPad 4 were not disappointed. It is expected that iPad 5 will bring something additional as well.

2. It becomes very easy to browse the Internet on a full screen. It is also expected that iPad5 is going to have excellent 4G connectivity

The only area where iPad Mini clearly has an edge is portability. It fits into your handbag or your coat pocket very easily. If your top priority is portability, iPad Mini is what will clearly score over iPad.

iPad Mini gives you more at less

iPad Mini has already got a very positive response which is why it is considered to be a competitors to the full sized tablets.

  • It is very light and extremely portable. One can easily use just a hand to operate it which is not possible with any full sized tablet.
  • The greatest advantage is that you get all the features of a full sized iPad at much lesser cost

  • All games and applications from the iPad are compatible with the iPad Mini so you don’t lose out on anything

The one area where iPad Mini scores less is the browsing capabilities. There is a constant need to zoom in and out. The screen is also not as appealing as a retina display of iPad 4 and it is expected that iPad 5 will be much better in this department. Final word is that both the iPad 5 and iPad Mini are great in their categories. With so many features available, a user can look at what’s more important to decide what to buy.
