6 Reasons to Wait for the iPad Mini 6 & 5 Reasons Not To is a post by Adam Mills from Gotta Be Mobile.

According to reliable sources, Apple is working on a new sixth-generation iPad mini. With a release reportedly in the works, we want to take you through the best reasons to wait for the iPad mini 6 and the best reasons to skip it and go with something else.

If you’re on the hunt for a new iPad in 2020, you’ve got a lot of options.

Earlier this year Apple released new iPad Pro models and they come with an assortment of enticing upgrades. The company’s 2018 iPad Pro models are also excellent and they’re also much cheaper than they once were.

You should also check out the new iPad Air 4, new eighth-generation iPad, 10.2-inch iPad, 2019 iPad Air, and the iPad mini 5. We’ve seen some significant price cuts on the latter three and they’re worth a look if you’re interested in buying a new tablet this fall.

You might’ve heard that Apple might be cooking up additional iPads. The list reportedly includes a high-end iPad Pro and a new iPad mini 6.

iPad mini 6 Rumors

Respected analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes Apple is planning to launch a brand new iPad mini. He initially thought the device would arrive before the end of the year, but that’s changed.

Kuo’s backtracked a bit and now says that Apple hardware with mini-LED technology, the same tech that’s supposedly on board the iPad mini 6, has been pushed into 2021.

A newer research note from Kuo backs this up. The analyst claims a new version of the iPad mini should launch sometime in the first half of 2021. An even newer note suggests the same.

Digitimes, a hit-or-miss publication, believes Apple will launch a brand new iPad mini in the second half of 2020.

Korean outlet ETNews reports that LG is set to supply Apple with the mini-LED displays for new iPads. It claims the new iPads will launch in Q1 2021.

One leaker believes that Apple won’t launch a new iPad mini in 2021. While possible, it goes against just about everything we’ve heard thus far.

Other than the potential launch date, and a few other details, we don’t know a whole lot about the iPad mini 5‘s successor. It’s unclear if it will be another modest upgrade or if Apple will make significant changes to the budget iPad line.
