The rumor: A new version of the iPad mini will be launching in early 2021, according to Macotakara (68.6% accurate).

  • A larger 8.4-inch screen may be surrounded by slimmer bezels, with a similar design to the iPad mini before it
  • Macotakara also expects the Lightning port and Touch ID to remain
  • The new iPad mini may release as soon as March 2021

Our take: This is great news for anyone who has been waiting for a new iPad mini! It hasn’t been updated in just under 2 years, but Apple doesn’t seem to be done with the product line just yet.
