iPad mini 6 now expected to release in second half of 2021

The rumor: Apple’s next-generation iPad mini is still months away, according to Ming-Chi Kuo (76.6% accurate).

  • Kuo’s updated estimate suggests the iPad mini 6 is coming in the second half of 2021, versus sometime in the first half
  • An updated iPad mini has been rumored for years now, and is expected to have a larger display with slimmer bezels and faster processor

Our take: Again, this is not the redesigned iPad mini that so many want…just a tweaked version of the existing model. Like most product delays, I’m sure there’s some reason behind this, but it also seems like Apple has been sitting on the new mini for some time.
