While the large screen iPad Pro has been in the rumor mill for a very long time, the next-gen iPad Mini has not. A fresh set of rumors mentions that both could launch this during the same event, and the iPad Mini 4 will have about the same specs as the iPad Air 2, except the size.
Japanese blog Macotakara claims that "according to reliable sources," the iPad Mini 4 will have the same thickness as the iPad Air 2, just 0.24 inches. Its specs include the Apple A9 processor and 2 GB of memory, the same screen resolution of the larger second-generation Air and the iSight camera. The new Mini could also feature anti-reflective coating, fully laminated display, as well as the same overall case design as its larger sibling.
The iPad Mini 3 has a rather old Apple A7 processor and most consumers still consider the iPad Mini Retina to offer better value. Macotakara's sources also revealed that an updated iPad Mini 3 could join the Pro and the Mini 4, but this remains to be seen.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
