The new iPad mini fine print: 5G, Apple Pencil and more

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. However, there are also a few things to bear in mind, too.

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

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.

iPad mini 2021 ditches home button, picks up 5G and USB-C

While the main draw of today's Apple event is the new lineup of iPhones, Apple actually got the show rolling by announcing some iPad updates. One iPad being updated is the iPad mini, and it sounds like Apple's smallest iPad is getting quite the redesign. For starters, it looks like the iPad mini is ditching the home button in exchange for a full-screen display that stretches nearly edge-to-edge.

New iPad leaks just before iPhone event

Today a leak of a new iteration of the iPad mini was found in a parts listing in Japan. This new device looks as though it'll sport an 8.38-inch display with equal-sized bezels around the entirety of its frame with no front-facing fingerprint reader (Touch ID). This new device could very possibly be released for sale in the month of October, 2021.

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.

iPad mini 6 screen size to be larger with the same body size

The iPad mini's design has remained virtually unchanged ever since it first launched in 2012. There have been a few tweaks here and there and very slight changes to its dimensions, but, overall, Apple's smallest tablet is like a blast from the past. The next iPad mini, dubbed the iPad mini 6, might very well change all that, and a new leak gives a more specific screen size for what could be the more revolutionary iPad mini yet.

Apple is expected to release an updated iPad mini tablet later this year, one that may feature a mini-LED display.

iPad mini 6 with USB-C and A15 chip tipped to arrive this year

The iPad mini has always been the odd duck in Apple's mobile lineup, but it has also been one of its biggest miracles. Even with the arrival of larger iPhones, the iPad mini continued to sell well enough to have reached five generations so far. Despite that, it is also the only one that hasn't seen a significant change in design for years. That might be changing with the sixth-gen iPad mini later this year, but its redesign won't just be skin-deep.

iPad mini 6 renders hint at an iPad Air mini

iPad mini 6 renders hint at an iPad Air mini

Despite expectations of its demise thanks to larger iPhones, the iPad mini continues to sell well due to its particular appeal. It's simple, handy, and, thanks to Apple Pencil support, productive as well. What the iPad mini isn't is modern and its design hasn't changed significantly in the past years. It stands in stark contrast to all other iPads, something that seems uncharacteristic of Apple's design standards. That might finally be changing this year if these renders come to pass, making it a true mini version of Apple's tablet line.
