Apple’s iPad Mini 6 Tablet Will Excel at Everyday Tasks and Mobile Gaming
Apple’s upcoming iPad Mini 6 — the one that’ll reportedly sport the same iPad Pro-like design — has garnered quite a lot of attention lately and, well, it’s easy to understand why. An 11″ tablet is exquisite for content consumption. Still, it’s not exactly all too portable. There’s a large number of people who would very much prefer a device with an 8″ or 9″ display — along with the many bells and whistles we’ve all become so accustomed to. Unfortunately, bigger diagonals are all the rage these days. The same holds true for mobile phones as well.
That’s why the iPad Mini 6 is so darn alluring — for both everyday tasks and gaming alike. There have been many wild rumors, renders, and leaks, so no one’s all too sure what Apple has in store. Still, a comprehensive redesign is not only on the table but is also long overdue. For mobile gaming, the iPad Mini 6 will no doubt be one of the most alluring devices on the market, and it’ll have more than enough horsepower to run any mobile game you might throw its way.
So, naturally, it warrants a more thorough look!
iPad Mini 6 — Perfect for Mobile Gaming
There are still many questions marks regarding Apple’s smallest tablet. Still, leakers do agree on the following: it’ll sport an 8.6″ LCD display, Touch ID embedded in the Power button (just like on the latest iPad Air 4), USB C (at long last), a Smart Connector, Apple Pencil 2 support, along with Apple’s A14 Bionic — an absolute speed demon that’ll chew through any task with staggering ease.
As for pricing, the 64GB Wi-Fi model will supposedly retail for $399, with the 256GB one going for $549. If you want the Cellular model, you’ll have to spend either $529 or $679, depending on the model.
All in all, we’re talking about as well-rounded a device as it gets. Because of its smaller screen, the Mini 6 will also be easier to handle, which means games like Call of Duty: Mobile, Fortnite, PUBG Mobile, and League of Legends: Wild Rift (just to name a few) will be a lot more enjoyable than on an 11″ or 12″ diagonal. And if you happen to be into digital CCGs (think Magic the Gathering: Arena, Hearthstone, Legends of Runeterra, etc.), then you’ll surely have the time of your life — an 8.6″ display is the sweet spot for digital card games.
Mobile gaming is the future, regardless if we like it or not. Companies are raking in record amounts of profit and these numbers will only continue to grow as time goes on. And for the longest time, gamers had to choose between their (arguably oversized) mobile phones and (relatively humongous) tablets, which is why Apple’s upcoming iPad Mini 6 will be such a breath of fresh air. It won’t necessarily make any other device obsolete or less alluring, but it will bridge the gap in the most crucial ways.
There’s still no concrete release date at the time of this writing, but if the rumor mill is to be believed, Apple will hold an event in early October, with most devices announced at that point going on sale just a few weeks later!
