Apple looks set to wholly revamp its smaller iPad later this year. Or at least it does if rumours from Japan are on the money.
Mac Otakara cites supply-chain sources in a report that suggests Apple is looking to bring the looks of the iPad Air 2 to its new iPad mini 4.
That means a new, much slimmer frame, measuring just 6.1mm, with an eight-megapixel camera round the back and an anti–reflective screen courtesy of a laminated coating.
There’s no word on what processor the iPad mini 4 will use or what RAM it will feature. The same report reckons the slate will debut alongside a new iPad Air 3 later in the autumn.
That information flies in the face of other recent stories, which have suggested Apple will not refresh the iPad Air until next year.
The gadget-maker is expected to finally reveal its 12.9–inch screen iPad Pro at some point in the next few months.
Apple’s iPad range is likely to get an update a month or so after the Cupertino firm rejigs its iPhones.
