Well-known Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says that Apple will launch a newly revised iPad mini later this year. The current iPad mini is long overdue a refresh and that could come as soon as the second half of this year, Kuo said in a research note.

That research note was seen by 9to5Mac, with the same report also suggesting Apple will ship a foldable iPhone in 2023.

Respected Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo today released a report that said Apple will begin shipping its first foldable iPhone in 2023. The same report also included a tidbit about the iPad mini. Kuo said that a touch-panel supplier will benefit from the release of a new iPad mini in the second half of 2021.

We’ve been hearing rumors of a new iPad mini being in the works for months, with a design similar to that of the new iPad Air said to be incoming.

That would mean the removal of the Home button with Touch ID moving to the sleep/wake button. Smaller bezels would also allow the display to be made slightly larger as well, growing from 7.9 inches to around 9 inches in size.

Apple tends to announce its new iPads towards the end of the year, suggesting we still have a few months to wait before any new iPad mini is in our hands.
