Apple will hold a keynote next month dedicated to the presentation of its new iPhone 15. The latter could however also be used to announce another product: the iPad mini 7. The latter would notably have a new chip and a photo part in progress.
Apple will soon tell us about the iPhone, but could also have things to tell us about a new iPad mini. We learn from the leaker ShrimpAppleProthat in parallel with its future iPhone 15 and a new series of Apple Watch, the firm would prepare the arrival “ at least one new iPad, probably the iPad mini 7 “. If this informant does not yet give any precise presentation date for this new iPad mini, the latter would take the place of a sixth iteration launched in 2021 and powered by an Apple A15 chip, the same processor as the iPhone 13 and 13 Pro.
Remember that according to Mark Gurman (journalist for Bloomberg often well informed), Apple would have planned two events for the rest of 2023. The first in September, traditionally dedicated to the iPhone and Apple Watch; and a second, probably in October, dedicated this time to new Macs running M3 processors. The iPad mini 7 could thus be presented as early as September.
iPad mini 7, what’s new on board?
As for what this new model would bring,WCCFTechdoes not mention any particular design change. Essentially, the device would therefore retain the same chassis as its predecessor, but with an updated technical sheet. In particular, there would be a new SoC (potentially the Apple A16 of the iPhone 15 or the A17 of the iPhone 15 pro) and a photo part brought up to date.
I’m seeing at least one new iPad coming. Probably mini 7. Will reserved that for the next post.

In this regard, Apple would bet on a possible change of rear camera, but also and above all on the addition of the Photonic Engine to its iPad mini 7. Used on the iPhone 14, this machine learning technology makes it possible to automatically improve the quality shots, mainly in low light. If this addition is confirmed, it would be a first on iPad.
The iPad mini 7 would finally allow the recording of videos with the ProRes format, as well as stereo recording. So many tracks that must however be taken with a grain of salt, the information concerning this new model being for the moment quite rare and unsupported.
