Rumour: Apple iPad 5 and iPad Mini 2 coming in March

Thinking of buying an iPad 4 or iPad mini? You may want to hang fire as rumours are abound that updates are coming as soon as March

Apple is now on a bi-annual update schedule for its iPad range, according to one industry analyst, which could mean new 9.7-inch and 7.9-inch models as soon as March.

After consulting his sources at this week's CES expo in Las Vegas, Brian White of Topeka Capital Markets is convinced that a new fifth-generation iPad and a second-generation iPad Mini are on the agenda in the next couple of months.

White told investors that the iPad 5 would be even thinner and lighter than the third and fourth generation models, while a processing bump to the A6X processor was also mooted.

The new iPad mini would keep the same form factor, according to White, while there would be a bump in the engine room. White's note made no mention of recent rumours that the next iPad mini would boast the same high-resoution Retina Display as the iPhone and iPad.

The iPad mini received pretty universal critical acclaim, but the low-res screen is definitely something that could be improved upon.

The possibility of Apple updating its iPad ever six months, will surely encourage users to be more vigilant over when they splash out on their new iPad.

If the company is planning to release a new model as soon as March, it would seem unwise to purchase a current model at this time, even though they've only been around for three months.
