Apple reportedly planning radical iPad mini redesign

A report a few months ago claimed the iPad mini 6 would deliver a significant design in 2021, the first design update in six years. The report said the smaller tablet will ditch the large top and bottom bezels in favor of an all-screen design with a hole-punch camera at the top and a hole-punch Touch ID home button at the bottom. The renders in that leak look unlike anything Apple made so far. Apple is yet to adopt hole-punch camera designs on its iOS devices. And having the home button pierce through the screen is even stranger at a time where there’s technology available to place the fingerprint sensor under the display. Not to mention that the iPad in those renders looked nothing like the iPad Pro and iPad Air.

With the iPad Air last fall, Apple proved that it’s ready to make radical changes to its products. The iPad Air is the first tablet to feature a side button with built-in Touch ID, a feature that’s not available anywhere else on iOS and iPadOS devices. But the tablet has the same general design as the iPad Pro, featuring curved corners and a symmetric bezel running around the display. A new report claims that Apple will update the iPad mini’s design, teasing a few welcome changes to Apple’s smallest tablet.
