Apple launches a new iPad model every year. This year, the Cupertino-based giant is reported to be bringing an iPad Mini Pro. The report claiming the existence of an iPad Mini Pro suggests that the company may launch the iPad model in the second half of 2021. Separately, a new Apple Pencil live image has been leaked, hinting at detachable nibs and a glossy finish. Apple is also rumoured to hold its Spring 2021 event sometime this month, where the company may launch the new iPad models, new AirPods, and a new Apple TV device.
The new iPad Mini Pro report comes from South Korean blog Naver. The report from Naver says that the iPad Mini Pro model has reached is “design P2” development stage, which comes after R&D and planning stages. The iPad model could soon move the the P3 development stage, according to the report in Naver. The report also says that the iPad Mini Pro may be unveiled in the second half of 2021. So, if Apple does hold an event this month, it won’t launch the rumoured iPad Mini Pro device. The iPad Mini Pro is reported to feature an 8.7-inch display and its width is said to be more than that of the iPad Mini (2019). The report also says that the iPad Mini’s vertical width may be reduced.
This is in line with a previous prediction from Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who had previously reported of a new iPad Mini model coming in 2021, sized between 8.5-inches and 9-inches of display. While both reports offering differing information on a new iPad Mini model, it is best to take the information with a pinch of salt.
Apple’s Spring 2021 event may see the company announce the new iPad Pro models for 2021. Alongside the new iPad Pro models, he Cupertino-based giant may also launch a new Apple Pencil. An image of a new Apple Pencil has been leaked by a tipster who goes by the name Mr White on Twitter. The image shows the new Apple Pencil with a glossy finish and a detachable nib.
