Or you’ll what? Because it’s guaranteed they won’t.
Because it doesn’t need the same hardware.
Apple doesn’t care. They don’t “need” to do anything, as evidenced by the existing iPad mini selling better than any of that crap.
Well, that’s wrong. Tablets will only get larger.
iPads, like iPhones don't compete on specs. They don't need to, since Apple has the engineering advantages that mean lower clock speed and less RAM can outperform whatever mega-hot tentacular chipset Samsung or Qualcomm or nVidia put out. If you're expecting the new iPads to toast the competition on the tech specs then you'll be disappointed. Wait for the performance tests, and then you'll see that the factsheets don't tell all the facts.
The Mini will at best have the same major components as the 5. That should be obvious.
And I hope it doesn't go retina. Better battery life is much more useful.
