Kuo: Apple Planning to Launch New iPad Mini in Late 2023 or Early 2024

Apple is working on a new version of the iPad mini, with mass shipments expected to start towards the end of 2023 or in the first half of 2024, according to the latest information shared by TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

In a series of tweets today, Kuo said a new processor/chip will be the main selling point of the new iPad mini, suggesting that the device will receive only a spec bump. The current iPad mini was released in September 2021 and features an 8.3-inch display, A15 Bionic chip, USB-C port, Touch ID power button, 5G support on cellular models, and more, with pricing starting at $499 in the U.S. with 64GB of storage.

Kuo did not share additional details about the new iPad mini, but he did say that Apple is unlikely to replace the iPad mini with a foldable iPad through 2025 at least, as he believes that a foldable iPad would have a markedly higher price than an iPad mini.

My Mini 6 is my favorite iPad. Perfect size for my use case.

Can’t see what the presumed spec bump to M2 will do that it can’t already do but I guess it can’t hurt.

My Mini 6 is plenty fast already. I’d prefer to see screen improvements like mini-LED and promotion.

My wife got the Mini recently, and I can't lie—I'm envious of that form factor.

But going from Pro Motion back to the low-refresh rate on the Mini seems tough. Get ProMotion on that thing, and I'd spend whatever it takes.

What a prediction......really showing he has a strong insider network. "There will be a new iPad Mini, with a more powerful processor, sometime in 2023 or 2024". Mindblown!
