This latest rumor claims that the upcoming refresh of the iPad mini will feature a design akin to the 4th generation iPad Air. Just like its big brother, the iPad mini will supposedly lose the home button and feature a much bigger display with narrower bezels, resulting in a more modern appearance.

Over the past few days there have been quite a few rumors regarding Apple's plans for the successor to the iPad mini 5 (US$369 on Amazon), while some of them appear to be highly contradictory. Supply chain specialist Ross Young has now decided to chime in as well as he provides further details on the new design of Apple's smallest iPad.

According to Young, the new iPad mini will be equipped with an 8.3-inch IPS display, which would be an increase of 0.4 inches over the 5th generation iPad mini. It will also feature much smaller bezels that are similar to the bezels found on the current iPad Air. As a consequence, the 2021 iPad mini will not have a home button and likely feature a Touch ID sensor that is built into the power button that is located on the top side of the tablet. Overall, Young's predictions seem to confirm the expectations that the new iPad mini will essentially be a smaller version of the current iPad Air, which received much praise in our review

Fans of Apple's smallest tablet had to wait a long time for a refreshed iPad mini, which has not been updated since March of 2019. The new iPad mini is expected to be announced later this fall.
