    Since i have a day off, here is a little mock up comparison photo of what I think next years iPad models will be like.....same design as the current Mini, both with 2048x1536 IGZO Retina displays. A7X in 9.7 inch and A6X in 7.9 inch. Perhaps the size is not totally accurate, I was just messing around.

    Gawd, I hope the iPad 5 doesn't get that bezel.

    It means people don't have anything to say in response to your post.

    Makese sense to avoid impacting apps.

    I guess people would rather comment on threads about "iPad 5 to have stereo speakers" instead....things which are glaringly obvious regarding predictions of the next iPad.

    Would not mind the smaller bezel...though I won't be getting an ipad upgrade until 2014-2015 since my iPad 3 runs fine (Unless Apple does something unexpected to the line up). I seem to hold if from the bottom in portrait mode more than by the sides.

    I very well agree with your renders.
    But I doubt they would bring it both to same resolution.
    Mostly they will find some new resolution in keeping with aspect ratio.

    Is it not also a "glaringly obvious" prediction that the ipad 5 will look like the mini aka your mock up?:rolleyes:

    Nice mock ups, but the A6X in its current form is unsuitable for the mini. Much too power hungry.

    The chances are if Apple can step up to Quad Core in the A7 line, then they wont need specific 'X' variants and it will be powerful enough to drive a retina display in both devices.

    This should allow the Mini to not have to gain too much extra weight to include a larger than 15 watt battery.

    It should also allow the larger iPad to be reduced in size/thickness as the battery can be made smaller if power efficiency has increased with the A7 line.


    Both the A5X and A6X are unsuitable for a mini in their current form and why would they re-engineer them when a new chip would do the job.

    Another reason why we wont see a march refresh. They don't want another A5X incident where they push out another inefficient chip before the new chip A6 was ready.


    predict and project all you like but when the company in charge of producing the 7.9" retina display have said Q3/Q4 2013 for production then the chances of a spring iPad mini retina is somewhat redundant.

    because 16:9 tablets in portrait mode look awful ?

    Probably not. Maybe more like this.
    The narrow bezel is only practical if the iPad can be palmed.
