iPad mini Pro could be the next iPad model from Apple, suggests a new report. The report suggests that the company may launch this new iPad model sometime in the second half of 2021. Furthermore, an image of an unannounced Apple Pencil has also leaked, hinting at detachable nibs and a glossy finish. Apple is largely rumoured to hold its Spring 2021 event sometime this month and is rumoured to launch new iPad models, new AirPods, and even a new Apple TV.

South Korean blog Naver has shared information about this new iPad model – interestingly being called the iPad mini Pro. The report says this iPad variant has reached its ‘design P2′ stage, which comes after R&D and planning stages. If everything goes well, the iPads model could soon move to the development P3 stage, according to the report. It also says that the iPad mini Pro may be unveiled in the second half of 2021.

Furthermore, the iPad mini Pro is tipped to feature an 8.7-inch display and its width is said to be more than that of the iPad mini (2019). The rumoured iPad mini Pro model should likely be a sizeable update to the iPad mini, though the report says that its vertical width may be reduced.

Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo had previously reported of a new iPad mini model launching in the first half of 2021, sized between 8.5 and 9-inches. However, this new report seems to suggest that the company is now working on an iPad mini Pro for launch sometime later in the year. We recommend you take this new information with a pinch of salt.
