iPad 2021 is a good deal, you can take the leap of faith

The next-generation iPad has just landed and is available for pre-order. It’s a decent device to start with. Not a major overhaul on the exterior, so the look and feel is pretty similar to the previous year’s device. But the brand new ninth-generation iPad packs the firepower to deem the already popular iPad a compelling upgrade.

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

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

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.

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).

WhatsApp for iPad native app might be around the corner

Although they have experienced a resurgence in popularity and sales, there are still a number of popular apps that either don't work natively on iPads are or don't work properly. Instagram is the poster child of the latter with its suboptimal experience of Apple's slates. WhatsApp, Facebook's other social media property, isn't following its sibling's footsteps and might have a native app for iPads and even Android tablets coming soon.

New iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, MacBook release dates may be rapid-fire in 2021

Apple might be attempting to command the attention of the tech industry for the entirety of the month of September, 2021, so says the latest insider tip. Apple has a significant amount of products it's expected to reveal and release before the end of the year here in 2021 - that's not the bit that's unusual. What's odd is the idea that the company would jam all of said product announcements into one single month's time.

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.
