Apple is rumored to be bringing the new iPad mini (aka iPad mini 6) with an A15 Bionic Chipset. Rumors say that the new iPad mini might feature a USB Type-C port as well as a magnetic Smart Connector, just like the iPad Air and iPad Pro devices. According to previous reports, the next-generation iPad mini would have a completely new design that would match the iPad Air 4’s aesthetics. That model, on the other hand, has the same design as the Cupertino-based company’s previous models.
iPad mini 6 Specifications (Expected)
The iPad mini 6 is presently being developed under the codename J310, according to 9to5Mac; which cites sources familiar with the development. The 5nm process-based A15 chip is likely to give the next-generation iPad mini a performance bump over the 2019 edition, which ran on a 7nm A12 chip. This would be the “biggest” design changes in the iPad mini lineup’s nine-year existence, according to Apple.
The company will likely use the next Apple processor in upcoming iPhone models as well as the iPad mini in 2021. Apple is also reported to be working on a more powerful A15X Chipset that could be used in future iPad models.
The iPad mini 6 is likely to feature the magnetic Smart Connector; similar to that found on the latest iPad Air and iPad Pro models. This hints that Apple may have some Smart Connector-compatible iPad mini accessories in the works. The next model might also come with an all-new Apple Pencil for drawing and taking notes by hand.
According to previous reports, the iPad mini 6 will have a display between 8.5 and 9 inches with thin bezels. It’s also possible that it’ll abandon the standard home button for the Touch ID fingerprint sensor on the power button. The launch date for the new iPad and iPad mini has yet to be announced. To fulfill the increased demand for portable computing devices, Apple is likely to launch both models in the near future.
