This year, Apple fans might have reason to rejoice as a new iPad mini 7 may be in the works, according to a recent report. The announcement is consistent with analyst predictions from past statements that the small tablet is about to get an update. The final version of the little tablet was the iPad Mini 2021, which debuted alongside the iPhone 13.
The source of information is ShrimpApplePro, a reputable leaker on X, the social media network that replaced Twitter. The report claims that Apple is seriously contemplating releasing the new iPad Mini 7 this year, maybe in conjunction with the Apple Watch Series 9. The release might occur a month after the eagerly awaited iPhone 15 is introduced if it isn’t simultaneous. Despite the anticipation, experts predict that the iPad mini’s improvements will be minor, mostly with a spec bump.
iPad Mini’s Return: Latest Update Expectations
This most recent information supports previous claims by respected Apple analysts Mark Gurman and Ming-Chi Kuo. While we don’t know the specifics of the spec update, experts predict that Apple will likely upgrade the A15 Bionic chip, providing the upcoming iPad mini 7 in 2023 with more durability and power.
Fans of little products have experienced a rocky road due to infrequent updates or outright discontinuations. A good example is what happened to the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 small phones. As a result, the likely release of an updated iPad mini 7 this year may indicate that Apple intends to continue producing at least one mini product line. This action might persuade potential consumers of small tablets to anticipate a more regular release schedule every two years.
Apple’s larger tablets have a similar pattern, but so many 10 to 11-inch versions make updates infrequent. Therefore, individuals who wish for a smaller, more portable Apple tablet would probably find relief from an improved iPad mini 7. Tech aficionados and Apple supporters eagerly await formal statements from the tech giant as the rumored launch date approaches.
