The sixth generation was released in September last year, and the iPad mini with a new shape design was launched for the first time. Recently, news of the seventh generation has been circulating on the Internet. Well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo recently broke the news on Twitter, saying that the new generation of iPad mini will not be launched until the end of 2023, or even the first half of 2024, and the new machine will not have major appearance changes.
Guo Mingchi revealed on Twitter that the main change of the seventh generation of iPad mini will be the switch to the A16 Bionic or even the A17 Bionic processor, but the body design will only undergo major changes in 2021, including the cancellation of the physical Home button. Design changes will be made in the seventh generation.
Ming-Chi Kuo also responded to an earlier report on Twitter by The Elec, a South Korean website that claimed that Apple is developing a foldable tablet product that could replace the iPad mini in 2025. Guo Mingji believes that the price of the folding iPad is higher, which is different from the positioning of the iPad mini. He believes that The Elec’s prediction will not come true.
