iPad mini refresh coming later this year, says Kuo

Apple took the wraps off the latest iPad Pro models at an event held on April 20. The iPad Pro brought the long-awaited mini LED displays and the unexpected but much welcomed M1 chip from the latest MacBooks.

Along with the bigger and more powerful iPads, we were also expecting to see an iPad mini make a debut and even see a design refresh. None of this happened, and our hopes for a new small iPad died… But not for long.

Thanks to reliable leakster and analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, now we know that the supposed display supplier that’s expected to make Apple’s first foldable iPhone would also “benefit from the release of the new iPad mini”. While this doesn’t sound particularly clear, we think that the iPad mini might be a testing ground for Apple’s relationship with the supposed supplier, which is (wait for it)… Samsung.
That’s right! As reported earlier, Kuo sent out a note to investors on Monday (shared by 9to5Mac). Kuo’s report claims that Apple will make and ship 15-20 million foldable iPhone units in 2023 and that the foldable iPhone’s display will indeed be made by Samsung.

Now, as reported by 9to5Mac, the same report also includes the hint about the iPad mini. The details are scarce, but if it’s going to be anything close to the leaks that we saw earlier this year – we might be in for a disappointment. If the compact tablet makes it to production, the only changes we’ll see might be the upgraded processor, as well as a slightly better screen, of course – not mini LED. 

The iPad Mini has been rumored for a very long time. We even heard that Apple’s smallest tablet might be discontinued in favor of their expected foldable iPhone, but as we see -nothing is certain just yet.
