Accordingly the latest leaks and rumored specs for the iPad Mini 5 are as follows: The iPad Mini 5 might sport an A10 processor chipset with a 2GB of RAM. It might also remove the 3.5mm headphone jack in the device to follow the trend made to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

The tablet is likely to have an 8-megapixel primary camera, 1.2-megapixel front facing shooter and iOS 11 operating system. The iPad Mini 5 is expected to have improved battery life to ride along well with the new features of the device and will be 1 mm thinner in comparison to its predecessor.

The upcoming iPad Mini 5 is said to be more slender and elegant. It is also rumored to be featured with the new Live photos. However, these iPad Mini 5 reports are yet to be confirmed by Apple.
