The iPad Mini 6 is expected to launch this fall and a new leak has revealed some important features of the cheaper Apple tablet. Particularly notable on the spec sheet are a Type-C port and an A14 Bionic beneath the hood.

The iPad Mini 6 has reared its head in multiple leaks over the last few weeks. The smaller Apple tablet will succeed the iPad Mini 5 that was released back in 2019, and a new leak from China has now clarified a few key specs of the device.

According to tipster Bored Panda, the iPad Mini 6 will be powered by Apple's A14 Bionic chip. That has been speculated for a while now, as Apple tends to equip devices in this series with last-gen chips. Either way, the A14 remains a very capable chipset, and performance will not be lacking. 

The leak goes on to confirm that the iPad Mini 6 will sport a Type-C port, dual speakers, and side-mounted Touch ID. Dimensions are provided as 206 mm x 138 mm x 6.1 mm. The display will be an 8.4-inch one—a tad bigger than the 7.9-inch iPad Mini 5—and will max out at 60 Hz. No surprises there. The iPad Mini 6 will reportedly be available in color options of Silver, Black, and Gold. Launch is scheduled for fall.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
