iPad mini 6 now reported to have a screen distortion problem

Considering how it has remained virtually unchanged over the years, the 2021 iPad mini, a.k.a. the iPad mini 6, has almost overshadowed the iPhone 13 because of the upgrades and changes that it got this year. While those changes have so far looked and sounded great, there seem to be some kinks that haven't been ironed out before the tablet went into production.

iPad mini 2021 Review – Apple’s smallest tablet is a big deal

More so than most items in Apple's range, it feels like you either love the iPad mini or you don't quite understand its appeal. Now in its sixth-generation, the smallest iPadOS tablet has seen its biggest update so far, 2021 bringing a whole new look, larger screen, and extra features like 5G. It's still relatively affordable, though, especially when compared to the foldable Android devices we're starting to see make inroads into the tablet segment.

iPad mini 6 iFixit teardown explains jelly scrolling behavior

The iPad mini 6 introduced a lot of big changes to the small tablet family, the first one in a very long time. Not only has it adopted the design language now common across all iPhones and iPads, but it also finally embraced the USB-C connector. Although it seems minor in comparison, the larger display of the 6th gen iPad mini actually has significant consequences, including what could be the cause of what has been termed as the "jelly scrolling" behavior that Apple is dismissing as something completely normal.

iPad mini 6 “jelly scrolling” is normal behavior according to Apple

iPad mini 6 "jelly scrolling" is normal behavior according to AppleIt's not unusual for new products to launch with some issues, and even Apple's devices aren't immune to that. Fortunately, most of those post-launch problems can be fixed through a software update, like the "Unlock with Apple Watch" iPhone 13 bug that's already addressed in the latest iOS 15.1 beta. Unfortunately, that still depends on whether Apple considers something to be a bug or a non-issue, and it seems that it doesn't see any problem with the "jelly scrolling" being reported by new iPad mini 6 owners.

The iPhone 13 may be destined to be Apple's big seller, but it's the new iPad mini 6th Generation that arguably stole the most hearts during the big unveil event a couple of weeks ago.

Plentiful leaks may have spoiled most of the iPhone 13 surprises, but that just left room for the new iPad mini (6th generation) to steal the spotlight at Apple's big September event earlier in the week. The smallest iPadOS tablet arguably has the biggest personality, and with the addition of 5G and other changes there are plenty of reasons that upgraders are happy.

Apple’s new iPad mini is so much more than just a smaller tablet

I'd hoped Apple would grant the iPad mini a reprieve - instead, it gave it a reinvention. The smallest of the iPadOS devices proved to be the biggest star of Apple's iPhone 13 event this week, with new style, functionality, and speed partially eclipsing what could well be considered incremental updates to the best-selling smartphones.

New iPad release will likely focus on price

New iPad release will likely focus on price

In September of 2021 it's fairly likely Apple will reveal several iPad devices, each with their own set of key features. This isn't an altogether new strategy for Apple - iPad mini, iPad Air, and the base iPad are all in places right now where a new iteration needn't include much more than a spec boost. With the potential for students heading back to physical classrooms this year, Apple will also likely once again focus on enticing pricing for their most basic iPad model.
