We have been waiting for the introduction of the new generation of iPad mini for a long time. Although the Cupertinos did not unveil the tablet at the launch of the new generation iPad Pro and iMac, it will probably arrive in the second half of 2021. Now new details of the iPad mini 6 have been released.
The latest version of the iPad mini was introduced in 2019, and before that in 2015, we met with its previous generation. Now it seems that the company is preparing to introduce the new generation of this compact tablet.
Recently, a technology source with the Twitter account “hwangmh01” published information about this tablet that makes us more familiar with it. The tablet has the same design as the iPad Pro and has a few bezels around the screen, which renders have mentioned in the past.
According to the source, the new generation iPad mini supports 5G network and is available in at least two colors, silver and gray. Although this source refers to this device as the iPad Mini Pro, it is expected to be the same as the iPad Mini 6.
This is not the first time that we have seen information about the sixth generation of the iPad mini, and reports have announced that this product will be released in the second half of this year. According to a leading analyst of Apple products, “Ming-Chi Koo”, this device will use a 9-inch display and will have a design similar to the iPad Air. According to this source, we are faced with a smaller version of the iPad Air 4, which along with the low margins of the screen, the fingerprint sensor of Touch ID is also embedded inside the power button.
Other sources make it clear that the practice is not limited to the iPad. It is possible that Apple’s next tablet will arrive with an 8.4-inch screen. In addition to the difference in screen size, sources also differ about the fate of the Home button, and some report that the button is still alive.
In the above rendering, we see the installation of a fingerprint sensor under the screen, as well as a hole for hosting a selfie camera, which, of course, we should not expect such features in the future Cupertino tablet. In the past, images of the replica of this tablet were published, which indicated a similar design to its current generation, however, this replica can not be trusted much.
Apple is expected to use the A14 Bionic chip similar to the iPad Air 4 for the new generation iPad mini and offer it to buyers with a base price of $ 399 this fall.
