Well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has shared interesting development news about the upcoming iPad Mini. According to the leaker, Apple only plans to ship the tablet by the end of next year, putting the two-year iPad hardware cycle intact. It also adds that the launch may be postponed until the first half of 2024.

Apart from the obvious estimates, the leaker mentioned an iPad Fold slated for 2025. Kuo believes that the high cost of the folding Apple tablet will mean that it won't be replacing the iPad Mini lineup. Despite the vague predictions given, these details are the first to emerge surrounding the iPad Mini 7.
As regards the specs of Apple's iPad Mini 7, it is said that changes will be minimal on the surface as important improvements will be found under the hood. For instance, the tablet could benefit from a 120 Hz Pro Motion display or perhaps with an M1 or M2 chipset found on the iPad Pro 2022 models. Crucially, a Face ID could also be a worthy addition.

Unsurprisingly, it is safe to say that these upgrades may be accompanied by a price shakeup along the way. The iPad 10 (2022) was launched with drastic changes, but this resulted in a huge price increase. Of course, it's quite early to tell if this will be the definitive case for the iPad Mini 7.
