New iPad mini 2021 anticipated to launch this fall

Apple is expected to announce its next-gen iPad mini in fall 2021, with rumors indicating the tech giant’s smallest tablet will be getting a significant redesign with a bigger display and upgraded performance.

The iPad mini 2021 had originally been predicted to launch in March during Apple’s WWDC 2021 event, but it is now slated to be released as soon as this September, according to Bloomberg (via MacRumors). This further supports Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo’s claim that fans should expect the updated tablet in the second half of this year. 

The 6th-generation iPad mini is expected to be getting a major design overhaul, too. According to Japanese site Mac Otakara, the tablet may boast an 8.4-inch display with thin bezels, which will supplant the current 7.9-inch panel.

While there’s the possibility of it being equipped with a mini-LED display panel, OLED displays are rumored to be coming to Apple’s line of smaller tablets. the hugely-favored display panels are cheaper than mini-LED panels, so it appears Apple will stick to using OLED to keep the price down on the iPad miniiPad Air, and original iPad.

Apple’s upcoming miniature tablet may come installed with a more capable processor. Predicted by the Chinese site, the iPad mini 6 will run on at least an A13 chip.

The A13 seems like a good candidate considering the 2020 iPad has an A12 SoC while the hugely popular iPad Air 2020 runs on the A14. Being priced between those two models, it would make sense for Apple to opt for the A13. It may also rely on a Lightning connector instead of a USB-C port. 

All eyes on Apple this September
