Expectations are rising considerably.
According to the original 9to5Mac report, the iPad mini, which is said to be announced in the fall,A15It seems that a chip will be installed. The A15 chip is the next model of Apple’s original chip,iPhone 13 (provisional)It is said that it will be installed in.Besides, if you look at the rumors that the next iPad mini will support USB-C, adopt a magnet Smart Connentor, etc.Pretty promising updateIt seems to be. Perhaps the smallest iPad can replace a laptop.
According to 9to5Mac’s anonymous source, the A15 chip is the same 5nm processor as the A14. Currently, the newest is the 5th generation iPad mini announced in 2019. The 5th generation CPU is the A12 chip, which is also installed in the iPhone XS / XS Max / XR announced in 2018, the 8th generation iPad announced in 2020, and the 3rd generation iPad Air announced in 2019.
Apple’s A-series chips have been A12X, A12Z, A13, A14 since their debut in 2018, and probably (probably) next is A15. Similarly, according to 9to5Mac, there is talk of upgrading the A12 chip installed in the entry level iPad to the A13 chip, so this is not a major model change. On the other hand, if the iPad mini is equipped with the A15, the iPad mini is likely to be a significant update.
USB-C port & Smart Connector support also feels like Apple’s iPad mini. Having a Smart Connector means that you also have a keyboard.Earlier this year, Bloomberg also said that this year the iPad mini will undergo a major update with a home button and thin bezel.Press..Everyone loves Minchey Kuo when the iPad mini goes from a 7.9-inch display to an 8.5 to 9-inch size.Expected。
A slightly larger display for the Mini, a wider range of accessories, and the latest processor. In addition, iPadOS 15 greatly improves the usability of the iPad itself. At this timing, the new model for the first time in two years, Apple seems to be putting a lot of effort into the mini.
Perhaps the most notable thing this fall is the iPad mini, not the iPhone.
