In case you don’t know, this tablet is expected to get a thinner body as well as several hardware improvements.

Despite the rumors and reports from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo and a number of other reliable experts claiming Apple won’t release a smaller 4-inch iPhone called presumably the iPhone 6c, it appears that Apple has changed its plans. What this means is that on September 9th, aside from the long-awaited iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus featuring massive 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch displays and a number of other hardware and software improvements, we’ll see a smaller handset.
According to the latest rumors shared by people familiar with the matter, even though the next-generation iPhone will boast of a more efficient processor, 12-megapixel camera, updated NFC and LTE chips, 2GB or RAM, and a number of other noticeable improvements, its market share may see zero or negative growth in the fourth quarter of this year. Latest estimates from KGI prove that Apple may sell between 65 million and 75 million iPhone units in Q4 2015. As to the reason for such relatively weak sales, it may be connected with problems in the Chinese economy as well as with the limited usage of the widely-rumored Force Touch display.
Two other videos showing a leaked part for the upcoming Apple gadget have recently appeared on the Internet. This time we deal with the CAD drawing and the real iPad mini 4 rear panel purportedly manufactured by Apple suppliers. Both videos, which are available below, prove that the next-generation iPad mini will become the thinnest tablet in the lineup and that it will resemble the larger iPad Air in terms of design and shape.
