Apple recently launched the iPad Pro series earlier this year. The 2021 iPad Pro models feature a faster and more efficient M1 chip. The 12.9-inch Pro model also features a mini-LED display. Rumours are rife that the upcoming MacBook Pro models and the iPad mini 6 will feature the same mini-LED display. A recent report from DigiTimes claimed that the mini LED iPad mini will launch later this year. However, the CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC) contradicts the report and believes that the mini LED iPad won’t launch this year. Let’s take a look at the iPad mini 6 specs, features, and other leaked details.

No iPad mini 6 with mini LED this year

Apple is rumoured to launch the iPad mini 6 this year. Reports suggested that the compact Apple tab will get a mini LED display. However, Young claims that this year’s iPad mini will not get the display tech found on the 12.9-inch iPad Pro.

A recent 9to5Mac report claimed that the upcoming mini tablet from Apple will launch with an A15 processor. It is also said to feature a USB Type-C port and include a magnetic smart connector. There is no exact word on the launch timeline. However, multiple reports have suggested a year-end launch. We can expect Apple to unveil its compact iPad in October or November.

Design renders of the smaller iPad have leaked in the past. The leaked renders suggest that it will look like a smaller iPad Air 2020. 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, according to Prosser.
