Wait for Performance Improvements
If Apple is developing a new version of the iPad mini, you can expect it to come with numerous performance improvements. In fact, we've already heard about two in particular.
According to Kuo, the iPad mini 6 will come with mini-LED backlighting. The company is reportedly bringing the technology to the iPad Pro line, a new 10.2-inch iPad, a new iPad Air 4, the MacBook Pro line, and the Mac Pro.
So what does this mean for you? Well, mini-LED has some advantages over the LCD and OLED displays you find on most devices.
For one, they offer higher contrast. They're also less prone to some of the burn-in issues that often plague OLED displays.
They also provide deeper blacks, higher brightness, and they're also more power-efficient which could help with battery life.
In addition to this you can expect the iPad mini 6 to include a new processor which could also help with battery life, overall speed/multitasking, and experiences like gaming.
Again, Kuo claims the next-gen iPad mini will follow the iPhone SE 2’s product strategy which would call for an up-to-date processor.
The budget iPhone SE 2 utilizes the same chip inside the company's flagship iPhone 11.
Kuo also believes the iPad mini 6 will come with a 20W fast charging power adapter.
