Rumors, release date, pricing, features, and more about the iPad mini 6 (2021)

Design
As mentioned, the iPad mini 6 will feature a new design according to multiple reports. As early as January we heard about a new iPad mini with thinner bezels, and there have been multiple reports since then that Apple plans to bring the iPad mini up to speed with a design reminiscent of the iPad Air and iPad Pro. That means squared edges and narrower bezels, as well as the end of the forehead and chin and the Home Button. Designs from leaker Jon Prosser (above) seem to confirm this.

ccording to a multitude of reports, Apple is finally planning to replace the aging iPad mini 5 with a new model later this year. Admittedly the old iPad mini isn’t that old, but side by side with the sleek new designs of the M1 iPad Pro (2021) and iPad Air, it’s clear the iPad mini is in desperate need of a redesign. Thankfully, it looks like one is on the way pretty soon, here’s everything we know.

Size
The iPad mini, thanks in part to its redesign, could herald a larger display. We’ve heard Apple could replace the 7.9-inch display with an 8.4 or even 8.5inch display without making the device too much bigger, thanks to the aforementioned design changes. Reputable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says the new iPad mini will be between 8.5 and 9-inches in size, which would be quite the upgrade.

Display
We did hear briefly about the prospect of a mini-LED display for iPad mini, but this rumor has been quashed. Whilst Apple might make some minor tweaks, the new iPad mini isn’t expected to debut any major display upgrades.

Processor
Interestingly, we’ve also heard that the new iPad mini could get the same A15 processor from the iPhone 13, which would be a real statement of intent in terms of power and a huge upgrade on the current A12 offering.

Features
Rumors indicate the new iPad mini will have a USB-C connector like the Air and the Pro, as well as a Smart connector that could pave the way for a new Smart Keyboard for the device and other accessories. Touch ID will reportedly remain in the device’s top button, just like the Air as well. Touch ID support would indicate the new iPad mini will not feature support for Face ID.

5g Iphone

Yes, there are reports that the new cellular versions of the iPad mini could feature 5G connectivity for super-fast browsing on the go.

Apple Pencil

Release date
The new iPad mini 6 will hopefully debut in 2021. From Ming-Chi Kuo: Apple will release a new iPad mini in the second half of this year if analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is to be believed. According to a research note that also mentioned a foldable iPhone coming in 2023, TPK is the company that will benefit from the new release.

Mark Gurman recently gave the launch windows as ‘the fall’, so it seems likely the iPad mini isn’t far away at all! So there you have it, with the biggest design change in its 9-year history the iPad mini for 2021 looks set to be a major upgrade in previous years, making it a likely candidate for best iPad this year.
