iPad Mini 4 Is Expected To Support Extra Powerful Hardware And Split-View

Latest rumor suggests that iPad mini 4 may have a Split View feature. The source of this speculation is none other than the fact that a resource file has been found in OS X El Capitan within the Safari 9 browser that shows support for this much anticipated feature. If this rumor comes out to be true, it would mean that the specifications of iPad mini 4 would be a lot similar to iPad Air 2.

 

iPad mini 4 is Expected to Support Extra Powerful Hardware and Split9to5Mac as well as Hamza Sood, a developer by profession, reported about a tool in El Capitan that has been designed mainly to test the responsiveness of website designs. This tool can be used to check how Safari is iPad mini is working in split-screen view mode.

Split-View allows users to run two applications simultaneously on the same screen. This feature would be available in the upcoming Apple’s operating system i.e. iOS 9. Information about Split-View was first announced in June at WWDC by the company.

However, it is not meant of all iPad tablet models. Initially, this feature was said to be available only in iPad Air 2 due to hardware limitations. If the upcoming tablet comes with this feature, it is extremely likely that it would run on the robust A8X SoC as the iPad Air 2 or something similar to it.

It is to be noted that iPad mini 3 did not have many extra features than iPad mini 2 apart from Touch ID and availability in gold color. Thus, it does not seem improbable if iPad mini 4 comes loaded with significant hardware and software features.

iPad Pro Rumor Roundup-Specs And Rumoured Release Date Revealed

Apple might have dabbled in the WWDC 2015 of late and wowed us with Apple Pay and its streaming service but it cannot hide the dip in sales for its iPad over the last year or so.
When the iPad Air 2 and the iPad Mini 3 last year in October, we had been haggling for a glimpse but soon lost interest thanks to more handy and more functional tabs that came at prices that were bargains from Samsung and few upstart brands. 


Recently the rumored “iPad Pro” or “iPad Plus” are making waves as the next big thing for Apple though.

iPad Pro Rumor Roundup-Specs And Release Story RevealedThe Features

This upcoming iPad Pro is set to feature about 12.9-incher as its touch screen, according to Apple Insider. This lends much bulk to it over and above the earlier iPads that had 7.9-inches screen on the Mini 3 and a 9.7-incher on Air 2.

The Air 2 wowed us with its 6.1 millimetres thickness but the rumored new variant could be sleeker still, though we wonder how. Amid speculation that the Cupertino maker could introduce this so called iPad Pro at the WWDC, we were left wanting till the end. The trend is generally a November or October release for iPads right after an iPhone variant announcement annually!

If the conjectures are to come true then by this time, Apple will have vested the rumored iPad Pro or Mini 4 with the already famous iOS 9.

Innovative Features

The Touch ID sensor has been the most talked about feature of any tablet from Apple and iPad Air 2 does not disappoint the users on this aspect. Touch ID can also be used to approve iTunes purchase. However, users should be using iPad Air 2 in Portrait and Landscape features even as they seek to register their fingers on the iPad.

Display

 Bolder colors, more contrast and wider viewing angles are some of the new features that will make any diehard technology lover happy. The camera too sports a new sensor that has larger pixels and comes with a new image processor.
