The latest news is that Apple’s iPad Mini 6 will have an A15 processor and a Smart Connector.
iPad Mini 6, code-named J310, is a big upgrade.
The A15 processor, for example, will also be used in the iPhone 13 series, using an updated 5nm process. Of course, Apple is also working on the A15X, which will be used in other iPad models to be released at a later date.
According to a previous report by Jon Prosser, iPad Mini 6 will also use USB-C instead of Lightning. In addition, with the Smart Connector, there will be a special accessory, but it is not clear what it will be, most likely the keyboard cover.
Earlier reports in the financial press suggested that iPad Mini 6 would remove Touch ID from the front in favor of a larger, all-around screen, such as an 8.4-inch screen, but it was unclear whether the replacement would be a fingerprint or Face ID.
