First iPad mini 6 orders arriving to customers around the world
Apple announced the iPad mini 6 at its special “California streaming” event on September 14, and pre-orders began immediately after the keynote. While the official launch of the new iPad mini in stores is set for this Friday, September 24, customers around the world are already getting their hands on the device a few hours early (and because it’s already Friday in some countries).
The sixth-generation iPad mini brings a new design based on the latest iPad Pro and iPad Air models, which have uniform bezels and no Home button. With a larger 8.3-inch screen, iPad mini 6 also features support for the second-generation Apple Pencil and is powered by the new A15 Bionic chip — the same as the iPhone 13.
As we reported last week, shipping estimates for iPad mini 6 have already slipped to October or even November depending on the chosen configuration.
