Confirmed iPad Mini 2 And iPad 5 Release Date Is Octomber-November 2013
As far as we know, due to the new technologies included in both the iPad Mini 2 and the iPad 5, the handsets are expected to be released having some great new features. The new devices are waited to bring a brand new way of experiencing the world of a tablet running the iOS 7 operating system.
According to the Apple Insider reports, it seems that the digital sketching on the iPad platform will completely change now that the Wacom Intuos Creative Stylus is available. The Creative Stylus was specially created for a greater compatibility with the first iPad Mini, the iPad 4 and probably for the upcoming 2013 devices.
Keep in mind that Wacom is the firmware used for the S-Pen technology, and as you remember this technology is used by Samsung for the design of its Galaxy Note models.
Taking into consideration that the technology used for the Wacom tools is pressure-sensitive, you should expect a ‘natural drawing experience’ on your device. So, the iPad menu will be expanded even more, and it will be full of an entire series of compatible apps.
According to the report released by Apple Insider, these applications are already available on the App Store. Between the most significant apps available, you should see the Autodesk SketchBook, the Wacom – native Bamboo paper, ProCreate, Psykopaint and the ArtRage.
The iPad fans should expect the new S-Pen stylus to be released some time in October. The iPad-designed stylus will cost $100, and we must say you should expect a pretty realistic pen on paper sensation. This is possible due to the professional-grade 2048 pressure levels, which make the stylus sensitivity grow significantly. This feature will make the device better than the most current tablets on the market.
As we could see in a new patent filing from Apple, it looks like this amazing iPad feature will come along with another iOS feature which would be able to ‘ generate and manipulate 3D objects via 3D gesture inputs’. So, you should expect for the upcoming iPad devices to offer a pretty nice experience for its users.
Even though there is no finish date related to the mentioned technology in the filing and we can’t know for sure if it will be ready for the so waited iPad 5 and iPad Mini 2 which are expected to be released sometime in October / November this year, we are tempted to believe that the technology could be released due to the patent protection submitted by Apple last year when the invention was improved.
As far as we know from Apple’s Insider, the Apple patent file says something about a proximity sensor which helps the device with the 3D screen navigation. In other words, it seems that the device will be able to pull out 3D images from the existent 2D images by editing and controlling these images by using ‘conventional touchscreen gestures’.
Now that the patent exists, all the pinching, pulling, sculpting, twisting and pushing of selected images on the screen of your device will be nothing more than a necessary and normal change when it comes to both iPad models. This way, by introducing the editing feature and the image creation the iPads will be able to complete tasks that usually work on PCs.
Apple recommends the stereoscopic glasses for a perfect usability of this feature. The glasses are specially created for high end 3D activities and incorporates the cutting edge touchscreen attribute.
As far as we could find out, both iPad Mini 2 and iPad 5 are expected to be released sporting a Retina-laced display, powered up processing chips and some other improvements. The analysts claim that Apple will launch both its devices in the same period, and the rumors say the announcement will be made sometime in October, and it will be followed by the release date announcement most likely at the beginning of November.
