Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claimed that the iPad Mini 6’s release date could be delayed to the second half of 2021.
Apple announced the iPad Pro model with M1 processor at the Spring Loaded event held on April 20. At the same time, Apple was expected to introduce the 6th generation iPad Mini model at this event in the reports shared. However, the company did not announce the new iPad Mini at its launch on April 20. While users are wondering when the next generation model will be announced, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has published a new report on the iPad Mini 6 release date today.
Expressing that the release date of the new generation iPad Mini was delayed in the published report, Kuo stated that the model in question could be released in the second half of 2021. It is not yet known why Apple will sign such a move. However, Kuo points out that the biggest reason for this delay is the difficulties in the chip supply. As you know, many companies had to postpone their products due to the difficulties in chip supply. In fact, Samsung had said that it was very difficult for them to produce the Galaxy Note series in 2021 due to the chip supply.
Apart from that, Kuo briefly touches on some of the features of the new generation iPad Mini model. The model, which is expressed to be almost the same as the current generation in terms of design, is expected to be installed on an 8.4-inch screen.
The model, which is also emphasized to have thinner screen frames compared to the current models, is said to include the classic Touch ID sensor. It is also claimed that the 6th generation iPad Mini will also protect the Lightning port.
