iPad mini With ‘Biggest Redesign’ set to Unveil This Fall – No Home button with thinner bezels
The iPad mini 6 with a new design is expected to be released in the fall (September–November) of 2021. Apple is said to make a number of modifications to the iPad mini 6 in order to provide users with a new experience. The Home button may be removed, and the bezels may be smaller than on the current iPad mini model. Apple’s iPad mini was last updated in 2019.
Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman indicated in his weekly email “Power On” that the iPad mini 6 will be released this autumn. According to sources close to the situation, it will include the “biggest makeover in the nine-year history” of the iPad mini.
Last month, leaker Jon Prosser published several photos based on leaked schematics and early leaks to speculate on the design of the iPad mini 6. The renderings depict the upcoming iPad mini in a new light. It is expected to feature a bigger display and to take up almost the same space as the previous-generation iPad mini, which was revealed in 2019. According to Prosser, the difference between the previous model and the new one is only three millimetres.
Apple is expected to utilize the iPad Air 4 design as a model for the iPad mini 6. This implies that the next mini-version iPad may have a simple look and feel.
Aside from the cosmetic modifications, the iPad mini 6 is expected to replace the company’s conventional Lightning port with a USB Type-C port and to include a power button with the Touch ID fingerprint sensor. Apple may potentially release a new Apple Pencil version designed particularly for the iPad mini 6, with a smaller size than the current Apple Pencil. The new model is also expected to include a 5G variant with an A14 processor.
