Technology Stocks News 19

The third member of the iPad mini family has just been named and shown to the public. The device will begin shipping next week, is named the iPad mini 3 and follows the iPad mini and the iPad mini with Retina display. Apple Inc (NASDAQ AAPL) has yet to go into the exacting detail and praise that it lavished on the iPad Air 2 it just released but it’s becoming clearer what the company has done with this third-generation iPad mini 3.

The iPad mini 3 will be available for pre-order tomorrow (17 October) and will begin shipping next week and rumors suggest next week means Friday. The core specs are not dissimilar to that of the iPad Air 2. The iPad mini 3 will include Touch ID, 802.11 ac Wi-Fi and A8 processor, rather than the A8X processor run by the iPad Air 2.

The iPad mini will be made available in white, silver and gold and the Touch ID will be built into the Home button as expected. It will ship with a 5 megapixel iSight camera that supports full-HD (1080p) video recording, a FaceTime HD front-facing camera, and will support up to 802/11n with MIMO as far as Wi-Fi is concerned.

Apple Inc financial news (NASDAQ AAPL)

While just simple speculation, this might not sell as Apple wants. With just a 7.9in Retina display, one could easily question the wisdom of the new device given the increased screen size of the newly released and hugely popular iPhone 6 plus. That is, however, just one person’s opinion and it comes from someone who has been wrong before on a number of occasions including a number of occasions with regards to Apple Inc (NASDAQ AAPL).
