iPad 7 and iPad mini 5 reportedly set to launch in the first half of 2019

Following up on a flurry of reports late last year, DigiTimes is citing industry sources this week who claim that Apple is preparing to launch “two entry-level tablets in the first half of 2019, including a fifth-generation iPad mini and another entry-level iPad model.” This would mark the first new tablet in the iPad mini line since 2015’s iPad mini 4, while the second entry-level iPad would presumably follow up last year’s $329 6th-generation iPad.

DigiTimes wasn’t able to share any additional details about the upcoming tablets, such as specs or release dates, but did note that Taiwan-based display makers General Interface Solution (GIS) and TPK Holding will be able to maintain stable shipments through the first half of the year due to orders from Apple for new iPad models.
