Fantastic new Apple iPad mini can be our dream tablet

If there’s an Apple product due to a new coat of paint, it’s the bad, neglected iPad mini. Last updated in 2019 (with a design straight out of 2015), it is fair to say that the minimal tablet looks a bit, is, tired. But it seems that a new iPad mini may finally be on the horizon – and if it looks like that, we are sold.

Apple leaker Jon Prosser has already claimed that the iPad mini 6 will finally throw away the old design in favor of an iPad Pro-inspired edge-to-edge screen. And now, reports suggest it “should be a go” for a fall 2021 launch. Yep, our best drawing table roundup can welcome you to its very first iPad mini this year.

According to a new Bloomberg report, “the biggest redesign in the nine-year history” of the iPad mini will come before the end of this year. This may be good news for digital artists who love the portability of the mini – and if it, along with the redesign, gets Apple Pencil 2 support, the new mini could become an indispensable tool for artists on the go.

In terms of design, according to Jon Prosser’s new Front Page Tech website, the iPad mini is “set to receive the flat treatment, get the very familiar flat sides and back, which we’ve seen with almost all new Apple products recently”. As Prosser puts it, the little new device will be like one iPad Air 4 – but less.

Prosser’s concept looks like Parker Ortolani’s brilliant iPad mini 6 concept from last year (below) – which we mean a mini-iPad Pro. We have been interested in seeing such a design ever since we spotted Ortolani’s concept, and it’s great to hear that it can finally happen.
