In yesterday’s keynote, Apple announced updates of two tablet model series. One of them is the iPad mini 6, which was last launched in 2019. It now offers WiFi or 5G and is available in four colours. Here are all models and variants. Sales will start on 24 September 2021.

On 14 September, Apple surprised us all with various new releases. The update of the iPad mini 5 had been a long time in the waiting. The variety of colours surprised me – Space Grey, Rosé, Violet and Polar Star are available. Read on to find out how much the iPad Mini has changed.
