Apple is rumoured to launch the iPad mini 6 later this year. Some key details of the upcoming compact iPad have leaked online. Reports suggested that the iPad’s mini version will share some similarities in terms of design with the Air 2020 model. It will have thinner bezels that offer a larger screen estate within the same form factor. Contrary to these leaks is a new report that claims otherwise. Mac Otakara claims that the iPad mini 6 will not get major design changes. It is said to be similar to the current iPad mini 5. It also reveals some key details of the iPad Air 5 and the iPad 9. Let’s take a look at the Apple iPad Air 5, iPad Mini 6, and iPad 9 details leaked online.
Apple iPad Air 5, iPad Mini 6, and iPad 9 details tipped
Apple iPad Air 5 specs and features have leaked online. A report claims that the Air 5’s design will be similar to the Air 2020 launched last year. Mac Otakara, citing Chinese suppliers, states that the Air 5 will sport a 10.9-inch display. While the report does not mention any details about the display panel, a recent report claimed that a 10.86-inch iPad will launch next year with an OLED display. The iPad Air 5 could be that model.
Mac Otakara further claims that the Air 5 will feature a side-mounted Touch ID and come with dual cameras on the back. The current-generation Air 2020 has a single 12MP camera on the back. Apple may or may not include the LiDAR sensor, which is found on the Pro iPad models. Other features include a quad-speaker setup and mmWave 5G chip. It is likely to draw power from the A15 chip.
The report also shed some light on the iPad mini 6 and iPad 9. It claims that the only major upgrade coming to the two iPads is the inclusion of an A14 chip. Apple does not plan to make any design changes on the iPad mini until 2022.
Previous reports suggested that the iPad mini 6 will have an 8.3-inch display and an A15 chip. It will have narrower bezels and come with improved internals. The noticeable upgrade is at the front. It will offer more screen estate in nearly the same footprint. The bezels are narrower and the home button is going away. Apple is instead placing the Touch ID on the power button, just like it did on the 2020 iPad Air. It will also come with “dramatically improved” speakers. The device is rumoured to launch in Black, Silver and Rose Gold colours.
The low-cost iPad 9 is also expected to launch later this year.
