There’s no word from Apple as yet on when it intends on launching its new iPads. Nevertheless, rumors about these devices keep coming in. Analysts too periodically chime in with their predictions and today famed Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities has made a prediction about the upcoming tablets. Kuo believes that Apple will still launch both iPads later this year, despite reports on the contrary, and that the company might substantially upgrade the camera on both tablets to boost it as a “selling point.”
Kuo predicts that the rear camera on iPad 5 and iPad mini 2, which is expected to come with a Retina display, might be upgraded from the current 5 megapixel iSight module to an 8 megapixel module. The camera module is said to have a larger aperture as well. It has consistently been rumored that Apple will unveil the new tablets this year. Recent rumors peg the announcement date on October 15th, but the company is yet to issue a confirmation. Other upgrades for the tablet include new color options and improved internal hardware package. Design changes are expected to be made to the iPad 5, which is believed to have a design similar to that of the iPad mini. No major design changes have been rumored as yet for the iPad mini 2.
