In its usual weekly newsletter Power On, the journalist of Bloomberg Mark Gurman has unveiled his latest predictions about the Apple Watch Series 7 and AirPods 3. But that’s not all, since it also contains information about iPads. According to the author, a ninth generation of the classic model would thus be in the boxes as already mentioned a little earlier.
Based on the most recent information about this device, it is expected to feature a new design that resembles that of its high-end cousins such as the iPad Air 2020. It is generally believed that the device will also perform better. than before, maybe with an A13 processor. Moreover, little is known about it, but the screen size should stagnate at 10.2 inches and the format will be reduced.
New iPad mini
The sixth iPad mini, on the other hand, would be entitled to an enlarged display: 8.3 inches against 7.9 previously. Gurman therefore assumes that the width of the borders will be reduced, which makes sense, especially since the appearance of the tablet would also match those of the iPad Pro on sale at the moment. For the American, it would then be the “biggest change”Since the launch of the iPad mini almost ten years earlier.
The price, meanwhile, remains unknown for the moment. For comparison, the current iPad mini is sold against 459 euros for the version with 64 GB of storage in France. A price that climbs to 629 euros for 256 GB of memory. The versions with modem included, for their part, require 140 euros to be added to these amounts. As for the engraving (optional), it is free, but the AppleCare + insurance is billed at 79 euros.
Two keynotes… or more?
Finally, Gurman just posted one more hint on his Twitter account. We can read that the editor of Los Angeles thinks that Apple will organize not only one but two conferences to launch its next products. With the latest for iPads and Macs.
This is not the first time that a rumor of this ilk has reached us: already last month, the Taiwanese from DigiTimes assured for their part that Cupertino even prepared up to three events.
There will be two events, and I’d expect the latter to be Mac + iPad. iPhone / Watch Tuesday. https://t.co/xfAjhUkigC
