Apple is due to release its iPad mini 6 this year and it would be entitled to a Mini-LED screen. According to DigitimesRadiant Optoelectronics will ship its backlight units for the upcoming iPad mini and MacBook Pro Mini-LED later in the third quarter, with production volume rising in the fourth quarter.
This choice of the Mini-LED screen for the iPad mini 6 is interesting. The only Apple tablet to have such a panel to date is the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. The technology is also due to make an appearance on the upcoming 14 and 16-inch MacBook Pros.
The Mini-LED offers advantages such as higher brightness, better contrast and deeper blacks compared to traditional LCD screens.
Several rumors have already circulated about the next iPad mini. The tablet would be the equivalent of an iPad Air (visually speaking), but in a more compact size. The borders would be thinner around the screen and the Home button would disappear. The Touch ID fingerprint sensor would be housed in the ON / OFF button. Also, there would be a larger screen (between 8.5 and 9 inches), a USB-C port instead of the Lightning port and a Smart Connector. In terms of power, Apple would put the A15 chip, the same one that will be in the iPhone 13.
