Japanese blog MacOtakara published a roundup of features that could be coming to the iPad Air 5, iPad mini 6, and even the base-model iPad 9th generation.
For the iPad mini 6, Chinese suppliers have been telling the blog since January that it will have an 8.4-inch display, but with the same form factor and the A14 Bionic chip.
For the iPad 9, it’s rumored that it’ll have the same form factor, and both iPad mini and this entry-level iPad could keep the same form factor until 2022 or later.
For the iPad mini 6, 9to5Mac’s Chance Miller has reported that the new device will feature the A15 Bionic chip, USB-C connectivity over the Lightning port, and a magnetic Smart Connector similar to the iPad Pro.
Bloomberg has previously reported that Apple is working on a new iPad mini for release as soon as sometime later this year?
The new iPad mini is expected to feature slimmer bezels and no Home button.
Last May, reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reported that Apple would release an iPad mini that’s between 8.5 inches and 9 inches.
