The iPad is a great device. So is the iPad Air and the iPad mini and the iPad Pro. Which, when you look at it like that, shows us that Apple might have too many iPad models. Does Apple really need four different models, which even includes two variants with different screen sizes for the Pros? It does if it really, really wants to keep avoiding multiuser support!
Of the devices Apple announced in September 2021, the all 6th-generation iPad mini is getting a lot of attention. The fun sized device now includes an edge to edge screen and a Touch ID power button like its larger predecessor the iPad Air. Adding to the playfulness, Apple added more color ways and included iPad mini wallpapers that match each hardware version.
The iPad mini is a tablet that I've always wanted, ever since it was first unveiled. It was so cool looking, seemed super useful for certain situations, and that portability was top notch. And yet, over the years, I've picked one up here and there but I've never kept it. The same can be said for the newest variant of the long running small tablet lineup, too.
The brand new iPad mini (sixth generation) brings an all-screen design, as well as a change to the camera setup on the back of the tablet. Which means it's about time for a brand new case or cover -- because your old one won't fit the new model.

New devices, new teardowns. That's what we can expect from the crew over at iFixit, and, sure enough, the trend continues. Today, the teardown experts have taken apart Apple's newest and smallest tablet. Along the way, they even describe what some are calling a "major issue."
"Jelly scrolling" isn't something we see pop up all the time. But, when it does, it's usually a small blip on the radar in the grand scheme of things. That will more than likely be the case with the iPad mini 6's situation, too, but at least Apple isn't outright ignoring the situation.
The all-new, redesigned iPad mini features plenty of noteworthy elements. That includes the "all-screen" design thanks to its smaller bezels, Touch ID built into the top button, and a USB-C port. Among other things. But it looks like Apple slipped in another detail, tied to what many would consider is one of the more boring elements of the tablet.
I don't know about you, but before I consider picking up a new device I usually go over the reasons why I need it. That starts with why I want it, of course, but before I'll pull the trigger on a purchase I at least need to tell myself I'll use it. And, depending on the device and just how expensive it is, that justification is a requirement. Because if I end up buying something and then not using it for a few days, or longer, I tend to return it or sell it off.
Today is iPhone 13 launch day. (And also iPad mini 6 and iPad 9, too!) And for folks who plan to restore from an iCloud backup to get their new phone up and running, Apple has a bit of a warning: maybe don't do that. Or, if you do, be prepared for a day-one security update to fix a potential issue.
During its California Streaming event, Apple unveiled a brand new, redesigned iPad mini that welcomes quite a few noteworthy features to the mix. That includes slimmer bezels, Touch ID in the top button, and support for the second-generation Apple Pencil. Among many other things.
Apple's California Streaming event wrapped up pretty quickly, all things considered. The company unveiled a handful of new products, including the iPhone 13 lineup. But arguably the star of the show was the brand new, oft-rumored, all-new redesigned iPad mini.
