In addition to the new chipset and Apple pencil The iPad mini has been almost completely neglected since 2015. This fall, it seems to be changing with a reform iPad mini 6 it is now presented in its entirety.
The iPad mini 6 is basically a really small iPad Air 4
Tipster Jon Prosser is published renderings the upcoming iPad mini 6, based on a combination of diagrams, CAD files and even hands-on images of the upcoming Apple tablet. in the upper left corner of the back panel. The front, on the other hand, accepts the design of the entire screen with evenly thin frames.
The design language fits perfectly a recent report Mark Gurman, who said the iPad mini 6 was tested with “narrower edges” around the screen and without the traditional Touch ID home button.
Despite the changes Apple does not ditch the Touch ID and replace it with a Face ID like it iPad Pro. Instead, the Touch ID sensor is reportedly integrated into the power button, just like Apple did with the iPad Air (2020).
Other changes include Lightning’s move to USB-C, which is particularly interesting as Apple has so far reserved a more advanced, universal port for the iPad Pro lineup.
The speakers are also said to have improved. According to Prosser, the sound experience is now “crazy nice,” even though no precise details had been shared at the time of writing.
Finally, it should be noted that the larger screen does not compromise the compact size of the tablet. According to today’s leak, the iPad mini 6 measures 206.3mm x 137.8mm x 6.1mm, just slightly larger than the iPad mini 5 (203.2 x 134.8 x 6.1mm).
