We will see the iPad mini 6 this year
Mark Gurman, who works as an analyst for Bloomberg, is the one who has now given new information about this iPad. He is one of the gurus with the highest percentage of success when making this type of predictions and although he never reveals his sources, his reports are always taken into account. In the last hours some of the novelties of this iPad model that had already been rumored and that seems to gain more strength now have advanced.
According to Gurman, this device would have a screen size of between 8.5 and 9 inches, leaving behind the 7.5 that the current models have. This would not imply a larger size of the device itself, since this reduction of frames would be carried out on the front with the elimination of the main button. It is not entirely clear if he will have Touch ID on the lock button as in the ‘Air’ model, if it will incorporate Face ID or even if the company bets on an under-screen fingerprint unlock.
It is also not clear the processor that this team would mount, but everything indicates that it could be the chip A15 that would also mount the iPhone of this year. It could precisely be presented at the same event, around the month of September. Gurman only stated that it would arrive later this year, but unless the company intends to hold more than one event, that would be the key month. It could also be accompanied by a ninth generation iPad that in its case would maintain the classic design.
Advancement also of news in iPad Pro 2022
Despite the fact that the iPad Pro with M1 chip launched just a few weeks ago is still on everyone’s lips and great things are expected from him after the introduction of iPadOS 15, Apple could already be thinking about next year’s generation. According to the same Gurman report, it would have important news regarding its cargo.
The most striking thing is that it would have wireless charging, something so far exclusive to iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPods. We do not know exactly what it would be like when taking into account the dimensions of this device (a giant MagSafe?), But it would also be accompanied by the reversible load. Precisely this technology attracts more attention, since it would give the possibility of charging other devices with its rear part and it would make more sense than in an iPhone as it has a larger size and therefore a battery with a greater capacity.
