iPad Mini And Redesigned iPad With Lightening Connector Releasing Tomorrow

Tomorrow is the big day when Apple is going to announce a redesigned iPad mini and as the name suggests,, this iPad will be of a smaller size with 7.85 inch diagonally. The reason for introducing a 7 inch iPad is to compete with Google's Nexus 7 and Amazon's Kindle Fire. It is quite obvious that the new iPad mini will feature a lightening connector like that of iPhone 5.

The concept of a 7 inch iPad was earlier coined while Steve Jobs was still alive but he wouldn't accept it considering it as a waste because of the smaller screen size and instead proposed 10 inch screen as a minimum requirement. The ideology behind the 7 inch iPad came from Apple's senior vice president, Eddy Cue who strongly believes that there is a market in 7 inch screen devices and hence Apple should have a smaller iPad too.

It is a known fact that Apple gives a lot of thinking before releasing a product and the reason behind having a 7.85 inch iPad instead of 7 inch is because this will help the developers an easy way to upgrade their apps. With a 7.85 inch screen, the iPad mini can still run all the applications that run on iPad and iPhone. The only work that developers will have to upgrade their apps would be to adjust the corners to match the iPad mini screen.

Internally, the iPad mini is believed to be built using the same components as last year's iPad 2. That means the same CPU (A5), same RAM (512 MB) and same GPU. It also means the screen is not expected to be a "Retina" display. Instead, it will be same 1024x768 resolution as the iPad 2 -- though at a higher pixel density due to the smaller screen. - Macrumors

Apple’s All New Lightning Connector - Everything You Need To Know

    The new iPhone 5, along with the new iPods, comes with a new connector that Apple has named the Lightning connector. This 8 pin connector is much smaller than the previous 30 pin connector that Apple has been using for the past decade or so. This big yet subtle change in the dock connector will directly affect all those who already own any of the Apple devices and of course those who purchase the new ones. If you happen to want to use your Apple accessories for the new iPhone 5, you will have to buy an adapter. The other alternative is to purchase the new accessories that are coming out in the fall for the new ions devices.     New Lightening Connector From Apple According to Apple, the new connector has some serious benefits to offer :   The reduction in size (by an exact 80%) means that Apple gets the chance to fit many more components into the brand new better than ever iPhone 5 The connector is reversible, so you need not worry about which is the right side to plug in. The data flow will be faster with the new cable. The change is quite annoying for a number of existing Apple customers. Buying a converter will cost you $30 at least, and the lightning/ USB cable comes for $20. But, in all fairness, this measure is not a way to force people to buy something new; Apple has been pretty consistently merciless in term of adopting the latest and chucking out outdated technology.

Apple will make a bit of benefit on its new sales of course. The accessories market for iPods, iPads and iPhones pulls in a significant percentage of revenue. According to some estimates, Apple purchased accessories worth $2-$3 billion in fiscal the previous year. Moreover, much of the accessories mad by Apple, such as adapters and cables, are pretty much pure profit considering they cost very little to make in the first place.

  The new dock also means that some of the third-party accessory manufacturers get opportunities to sell new docks, cases, chargers and all kinds of accessories that are connected via the port at the bottom of the iPhone/ iPod.  These accessories will become available with major brands such as Bowers & Wilkins, Bose and JBL around the holidays.   Therefore, the new iPad is the only Apple device of the current generation to be using the 30 pin connector. This will obviously change soon, since any move made by Apple with one device rolls out to the others as well.
