Apple took the wraps off the latest iPad Pro models at an event held on April 20. The iPad Pro brought the long-awaited mini LED displays and the unexpected but much welcomed M1 chip from the latest MacBooks.
Along with the bigger and more powerful iPads, we were also expecting to see an iPad minimake a debut and even see a design refresh. None of this happened, and our hopes for a new small iPad died… But not for long.
Now, as reported by 9to5Mac, the same report also includes the hint about the iPad mini, supposed to arrive “in the second half of 2021”. The details are scarce, but if it’s going to be anything close to the leaks that we saw earlier this year – we might be in for a disappointment. If the compact tablet makes it to production, the only changes we’ll see might be the upgraded processor, as well as a slightly better screen, of course – not mini LED.
The iPad Mini has been rumored for a very long time. We even heard that Apple’s smallest tablet might be discontinued in favor of their expected foldable iPhone, but as we see -nothing is certain just yet.
