Redesigned iPad mini likely coming later this year as new details leak

The rumor: Apple is planning a radically upgraded version of the iPad mini, according to Mark Gurman (88.7% accurate, via Bloomberg).

  • For the first time in the tablet’s history, an updated design will shrink the bezels and likely remove the home button
  • Apple is currently planning a launch “as early as the end of this year”

Our take: The iPad mini is fundamentally the same product now as it was when it released. For those of you dreaming about a mini iPad Pro…this sounds like it. And it sounds great.
