It is rumored that Apple is working on a new version of iPad mini with larger screen size and Japanese side Mac Otakara today shared some details on the upcoming tablet with information that is said to be taken from the Chinese supply chain.
The upcoming iPad mini is said to have an 8.4-inch screen, up from the current 7.9-inch screen size. It will have slimmer frames and will look like the iPad Air 3, a design language that Mac Otakara said Apple will also use for the ninth generation low-cost iPad.
The IPad mini 6 will have a design that is combined with the upcoming low iPad, and will continue to have a Touch ID Home button with top and bottom frames and a lightning port.
Mac Otakara believes that the updated iPad mini will see a launch in March, so it may debut at a March event if Apple has one planned.
Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said in May 2020 that the next-generation iPad mini,5 would have a screen measuring 8.5 to 9 inches. He has also said that Apple is working on a iPad mini with a mini-LED screen, but it is not clear if the iPad mini 6 is the iPad mini that will have the upgraded screen.
