Apple recently refreshed its iPhone lineup, but there’s been no update to the iPad mini series. Reports suggest that Apple may introduce the iPad mini 7 later this year, potentially in the last quarter of 2023.

Report from DigiTimes

DigiTimes, a source known for its insights from part suppliers, reports that iPad shipments have been declining. However, this trend could reverse with the anticipated release of a ‘new small-size iPad’ expected to hit the market in Q4 2023. It’s worth noting that while DigiTimes often provides accurate information, its track record on Apple product launches isn’t perfect, so some caution is advised.

Speculations About Hardware

While specific hardware details are scarce, there’s speculation that the new iPad mini 7 may feature an upgraded chipset, likely the A16 Bionic, as using the A17 Pro could increase costs compared to the 2021 model. Additionally, there’s anticipation of the ProMotion display, Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.3 support, an improved camera setup, and the inclusion of the Photo Engine in the smaller model.

Mixed Predictions

Prominent Apple tipsters like Mark Gurman and AppleShrimpPro align with DigiTimes’ prediction of the iPad mini 7 unveiling later in 2023. However, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo disagrees, suggesting that mass production may not commence until early 2024.

Recap of iPad Mini 6

To recap, the iPad mini 6 currently boasts the A15 Bionic chipset and includes a USB Type-C port for charging. If Apple does release the iPad mini 7 by the end of 2023, it might bring minor spec improvements while retaining the design of its predecessor.
