In the autumn of 2021, Apple is expected to release a redesigned iPad mini with a new design, and the 24-inch iMac might be joined by a bigger model powered by Apple Silicon.
The iPad mini is reported to be getting a makeover from Apple, featuring smaller bezels and the elimination of the Home button. The upgraded sixth-generation model was initially expected to arrive before the end of the year, but according to one report, it might arrive as early as this autumn.
The iPad mini, according to Mark Gurman, “should be a go” for a fall release. According to Gurman’s sources, the “largest makeover in the nine-year history” of the gadget will be comparable to the changes made to the iPad Air.
According to leaked blueprints, the iPad mini will have the same footprint as the present device, with only a 3mm change. The Lightning connector is said to have been replaced with USB-C, the speakers have been upgraded, and Touch ID will continue as a power button sensor.
The iPad mini isn’t Apple’s only device in the works, according to Gurman. Apple is also working on a second iMac model that will employ Apple Silicon, in addition to the updated 24-inch iMac.
The next model will be a larger version that will ostensibly replace the existing 27-inch iMac, however it may feature an even larger screen. Instead of the M1, the iMac might utilize the speculated M1X or M2 processor.
