Could the redesigned iPad Mini find increased traction with businesses?

With the features included in the new iPad Mini, “that starts to break open even more [business] use cases for sure,” Dettbarn said.

For the sixth-gen model of the compact-size iPad, the display size has been increased to 8.3 inches, up from 7.9 inches previously. The iPad Mini form factor is not getting any larger, though, thanks to a reduction in the bezels around the display.

Apple is also introducing 5G support for the first time with the new iPad Mini, and the tablet is getting a major performance boost with the inclusion of the same processor as in the iPhone 13 — the A15 Bionic. The chip will offer a 40-percent increase in CPU performance along with 80-percent faster graphics for the iPad Mini, Apple said.

“We are always seeing new use cases for the iPad in business,” Dettbarn said—and the new iPad Mini should only further that. The combination of the portable form factor with boosted performance and 5G connectivity could make a stronger appeal to businesses, he said.
