I wrote about the back and forth on potential iPad Mini designs a few times earlier this year (here, here, and here). At the time, it was rumored that a new Mini would be released along with the new iPad Pro sometime in March. Well, March came and went, the iPad Pro was delayed until May, and a new Mini never arrived. That’s the Apple leak and rumor game in a nutshell, I guess.

Thanks to a couple of fresh reports from reliable sources, now a new Mini is back in the game for later this year.

Or maybe what they should be

There have been a couple of rumors going around about Apple’s coming iPad Mini upgrade. While most of them have centered on a modest update that will retain the Home Button and Lightning Port and look like a 3rd Gen iPad Air, others predict a bigger upgrade that will look more like the current Air. I’m still hoping the latter prevails and these new renders prove to be prophetic.

There have been a few rumors over the last month covering a new iPad Mini that’s slated to arrive in 2021.  Early reports predicted a design closer to the iPad Pro and new iPad Air, but the most recent ones are predicting a more modest design upgrade to the iPad Air 3 design language.

A New iPad Mini Concept Drawing Making the Rounds is Particularly Attractive

I’ll start off by saying that I usually have no interest in concept drawings or videos of potential future Apple products. So often they have little basis in reality, so I guess I fail to understand the point. There are enough leaks that often come far in advance of the release of new Apple hardware, so I just gravitate toward the real, or at least what leakers thinks will be real.

However, sometimes an effective concept can point out some interesting possibilities for a new device. Such is the case for a new one that was posted yesterday.

Rumor Has It New iPads Are Still Coming in 2020

IPad Rumors 2020

There have already been rumblings about a new iPad Air coming in late Summer or Fall, but according to Ming-Chi Quo, we should also expect a new iPad in the second half of this year. Well, maybe.

The iPad Lineup Makes Sense Again!

Ever since the first iPad Pro was released, Apple’s tablet lineup have been kind of a jumbled up mess. You had models that were too close together in price and specs, like the iPad Air 2 and original iPad Pro. You had the iPad Air 2 on closeout while Apple was selling the new 9.7″ iPad Pro. The two tablets looked exactly the same and were only separated by Pencil support and a few other specs.

Apple Gives the New iPad Mini a Bigger Than Expected Bump

We all knew it was coming. There was reason to be skeptical last year, because we iPad fans have heard the Mini would be refreshed before, only to be left disappointed. There have even been convincing arguments made that the Mini was a death’s door and that Apple would kill it off after releasing larger screen iPhones. There was a time when I believed it was a dead device fading off into obscurity like the Classic iPod did.

However, when the rumors of a new version of the Mini continued and they actually started coming out of the supply chain, things started looking good. Today, long-suffering iPad Mini fans FINALLY got a device worth waiting for.
