Apple is set to unveil a new version of its iPad in a big way.
The company is expected to unveil an iPad mini with a new processor and bigger battery next week.
It’s a big deal for the tech giant, which is set for its most ambitious product redesign since the original iPad was released in 2010.
The new iPad will be the company’s first with a thinner, lighter tablet than the current iPad and will be priced at $199.
That’s nearly $20 cheaper than the new iPad Air 2.
Apple’s new iPad is also expected to include a 3.5mm headphone jack, a new camera, a fingerprint sensor, a stylus and an updated Home button.
The iPhone 5c is set by Apple to launch Friday.
Apple also plans to release a cheaper version of the iPad mini later this month.
It will be $159.99.
Apple will be making its debut at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas.
The event will be streamed live from the convention center, and Apple will host live streams of the unveiling on its official Twitter account.
The next big iPad is expected in 2019.
