New information has come out on the iPad mini 2021. As the name implies, the mini models are targeted at people looking for a powerful small slate. They are updated infrequently – the current model was introduced in 2019, and the one before it was released in 2015.
Next iPad mini could be a smaller version of the iPad Pro

The fifth-generation model features a 7.9-inches display and thick borders. It is underpinned by the A12 Bionic processor.

Given that the iPad Pro now boast the M1 processor, it’s likely that the iPad mini 6 will skip the A13 chip for the A14 Bionic, which also powers the fourth-generation iPad Air. It’s expected to cost about the same as the current model, which had a starting price of $399 at launch. We may see it this fall alongside the ninth-generation iPad.
