The iPad mini 7 is rumored to be on the way – but might not arrive until 2024

What with the iPad mini 6 launching in September 2021, it would be reasonable to expect a follow-up appearing in September 2022 – but of course we haven’t seen any such tablet, and the rumor is that we might not get one until early in 2024.

This comes courtesy of reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (opens in new tab), who reckons that the next small slate that Apple releases is going to start shipping by the end of 2023 or in the first half of 2024 (though it’s not clear what that’s dependent on).
