Apple is expected to launch the all-new iPad mini 6 next month and the tablet has a lot going for it. The iPad has adopted the same design since its debut and the upgrade is long overdue. We now plan to announce the new iPad mini 6 with a new design that resembles that of the iPad Pro series and the latest iPad Air. All the rumors and leaks indicate that the iPad mini 6 will feature a squarer design with flat edges and a bigger screen. According to the latest information, images of the iPad mini 6 molds have appeared online in an attempt to substantiate past rumors and leaks.
iPad mini 6 mold images leak to show similar design with different placement of volume buttons
The aluminum die-cut molds of the iPad mini 6 feature a thinner chassis, larger screen, and flat edges on all sides. As the screen gets bigger, it’s thanks to slimmer bezels on all sides. Note that the iPad mini 6 will toggle Touch ID in the power button while Face ID is out of the question at this point after the release of the iPad Air 4.
Images of the iPad mini 6 mold were shared online by the techordo site in collaboration with a leaker named xleaks7. While the leaker’s track record isn’t that impressive, it’s still interesting to see how the molds share the supposed dimensions of the iPad mini 6. The design was shared months ago by Jon Prosser and it’s now taking shape .
One thing worth noting is that the volume buttons on the iPad have been moved to the opposite side of the power button. It’s special because the buttons have always been positioned on the right side of the iPad. However, since the final say is up to the company, we just have to wait and see how Apple positions the volume buttons on the iPad mini 6. You can check out more images here. You can also check the video below for more details.
Similar to the iPad Air 4, Apple will ditch the Home button from the iPad mini 6. Also, Touch ID will be integrated into the power button instead of a dedicated slot on the former, Face ID will be absent as it doesn’t is only available on Pro models. Additionally, the sixth-generation iPad mini will potentially feature USB-C with a faster processor.
Apple might launch the new iPad mini 6 at its September event alongside the iPhone 13 series and Apple Watch 7 series. There you go, folks. What do you think of the script? Are you excited for the next big update with the iPad mini 6? Share your opinions with us in the comments.
