Apple on Tuesday debuted its sixth-generation iPad mini, which resembles a smaller iPad Air. The new tablet boasts thinner bezels, a larger screen, a Touch ID power button, a USB-C port, and compatibility with the second-generation Apple Pencil.
Other changes include the same A15 Bionic chip as iPhone 13 models, and a boost to 4GB RAM, up from the previous model’s 3GB. The ninth-generation iPad, which also debuted on Tuesday has the same 3GB RAM the previous generation sported.
MacRumors confirmed these specs by scanning strings contained within the Xcode 13 beta.
As for other iPad models, the iPad Pro is available with up to 16GB of RAM depending on the storage capacity you opt for, while the latest iPad Air has 4GB of RAM.
The new iPad mini and iPad models are available to order now on Apple’s website and launch on Friday, September 24.
