But according to the report, the new iPad mini 5 will be a low-priced device, meaning it probably won't receive a major upgrade like the iPad Pro did in October. Now the iPad mini 4 is offered in a single storage configuration, priced from $399, with both WiFi-only and WiFi + LTE models available.

Apple's long neglect of the iPad mini will come to an end in 2019, reports out of China suggest, as part of sweeping changes to the Cupertino firm's more affordable tablets rumored to kick off in the new year. The firm is planning to unveil the 5th iteration of its abandoned iPad Mini next year, a smaller and cheaper iPad which is more cost-effective for Apple to produce. Apple hasn't been updating it, but the company CEO Tim Cook mentioned it by name during the October event. Owners of the new iPad Pros can still exchange their original unit for a replacement within the 14-day return period, but that could be too late for some. The frame of the new model will reportedly be narrower, while the display will be slightly larger than that of the current entry-level device.

Apple hasn't updated the iPad mini since 2015, when it first released the fourth-generation model, so it stands to reason the Cupertino tech giant will probably give its smallest tablet a refresh soon.

The new iPad Pro has been shipping out bent out of the box, with Mashable reporting that Apple said this is something that happens during the manufacturing process, specifically after the "device's metal and plastic components cool".
