Wait for a Bigger Display

Wait for a Bigger Display

The price of the iPad mini should stay in the budget range, but that apparently won't stop Apple from increasing the size of the device's display. 

According to Kuo, Apple is planning to bump the size of the iPad mini's display somewhere in the vicinity of 8.5-inches to 9-inches. In another research note, he says it will be 8.5-inches. 

Digitimes backs this up. The publication states that the next version of the iPad mini will come with an "8.x -inch" display. 

Japanese blog Mac Otakara believes the iPad mini 6's display will measure 8.4-inches. Analyst Ross Young thinks the display will measure 8.3-inches. Young says the display grew "from 7.9" due to narrower bezels and removal of Home button."

If Apple's able to keep the size of the device intact, the added real estate would be huge for content consumers and people who love to do work and play games on their iPad.

Ahead of the iPad mini 6 launch, Apple's sent out a survey to existing iPad mini customers asking for their thoughts about the device's screen size. 

The survey asks owners if the iPad mini's screen size is too small, too big, or if it's just right. While the responses probably won't change Apple's plans, they could impact marketing. 

If an iPad mini with a larger screen is appealing to you, think about waiting.
