Top Apple insider hints at first refresh of the iPad mini in years, along with new AirPods and AirPower
Ahead of Apple's next media event in New York set for Tuesday, we were already anticipating big announcements to include two brand new iPad Pro models in 11-inch and 12.9-inch form factors. Now, a top Apple insider is out with some additional hardware predictions, which include the company's first fresh of the iPad mini in years, as well as new AirPods and the launch of the AirPower, which has been delayed repeatedly.
According to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple is going to launch a new version of the iPad mini that sports an upgraded processors and lower-cost panel. That comes via MacRumors, which reports that Kuo isn't sure if Apple will unveil it during the media event next week or wait to launch it sometime later in the year -- or even early next year. "But if an updated model is in the works, it makes sense for it to launch alongside the iPad Pro."
