Reliable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reported in May 2020 that Apple will release a new iPad mini in the first half of 2021 with a screen between 8.5 and 9 inches. Kuo could not share further details yet.
Even now, not many details about the iPad mini 2021 are public. For the time being, only the possible screen size is known. It appears that the edges of the new generation are getting thinner, resulting in a larger 8.4-inch screen.
‘New iPad Pro in March, gets mini LED screen’
According to a rumor, Apple will also release two new iPad Pros in March, in addition to the updated iPad mini. The largest model would get a mini LED screen, a new screen technology that ensures a longer lifespan. The smaller iPad Pro, on the other hand, retains its OLED panel.
The integration of mini LED is a persistent rumor. Insiders have been expecting the switch to this screen type for years. Mini-LED has several advantages over LCD and OLED, the current screen types used by Apple.
