Apple is rumored to be working on a new version of the iPad mini with a larger display size, and Japanese site Mac Otakara today shared some details on the upcoming tablet with information said to be sourced from the Chinese supply chain.
The upcoming â€ŒiPad miniâ€Œ is said to have an 8.4-inch display, up from the current 7.9-inch screen size. It will have slimmer bezels and will look similar to the iPad Air 3, a design language that Mac Otakara said Apple would also be using for the ninth-generation low-cost iPad.
The â€ŒiPad miniâ€Œ 6 will have a design that’s unified with the upcoming low-cost â€ŒiPadâ€Œ, and will continue to feature a Touch ID Home button with top and bottom bezels and a Lightning port.
Mac Otakara believes that the refreshed â€ŒiPad miniâ€Œ will see a March launch, so it could perhaps debut at a March event if Apple has one planned.
Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said in May 2020 that the next-generation â€ŒiPad miniâ€Œ would have a display that measures in at 8.5 to 9 inches. He has also said that Apple is working on an â€ŒiPad miniâ€Œ with a mini-LED display, but it’s not clear if the â€ŒiPad miniâ€Œ 6 is the â€ŒiPad miniâ€Œ that will have the upgraded display.
