Could a More Premium iPad Mini Solve Apple’s iPad Lineup Confusion?

  • Apple released the 8.3-inch Liquid Retina iPad mini in September 2021.
  • The iPad lineup is already a complex mix of 10.2- to 11-inch displays, one 8.3-inch display, and one 12.9-inch display.
  • What if Apple added a more premium iPad mini based on the iPad Pro line?

Taking a break from Apple headset hype, let’s talk about the iPad mini. Apple brought the 7.9-inch Home button iPad mini into the modern era with the 8.3-inch Liquid Retina display version in September 2021. Available in four colors, the A15 chip-equipped iPad mini hardly feels dated with performance on par with that of the iPhone 13 and iPhone 14.

If Apple added a more premium iPad mini to the line, it could instead be based on the iPad Pro line. This would mean a more advanced display, variable refresh rate up to 120Hz with ProMotion, and Face ID facial recognition for security instead of Touch ID fingerprint recognition. While this would add to the complexity of the iPad family, it could also satisfy those wanting a more premium model.

The iPad mini is actually said to not have any hardware updates planned any time soon, but it’s worth considering what could be done to make it more premium. A more premium iPad mini could add clarity to the iPad lineup for those wanting a powerful device in a smaller form factor.

Apple may be planning to release a new iPad mini soon. Rumors suggest that this new tablet could have a newer processor, improved cameras, and new color choices. Even more exciting is the possibility of this iPad mini having ProMotion, Face ID, Hover feature, an ultra-wide camera, LiDAR sensor, XDR, Thunderbolt/USB 4, more microphones, and quad speakers.
