Those who have managed to pre-order the iPad mini could get their hands on it very soon. Apple iPad mini pre-order is expected to deliver starting from next Friday, i.e. September 24.

Eventually, you should see the iPad mini listed in the stores.

The latest iPad mini features an 8.3-inch edge-to-edge display. Apple has moved the Touch ID to the top for the sake of smaller bezels and a less chunky design. Now the Touch ID on the top doubles up as a power button. The iPad mini is powered by an A15 Bionic chip that is faster and offers a superior graphics processing capability.

The sixth-generation iPad mini comes equipped with a USB Type-C and is compatible with the second-generation Apple Pencil. Furthermore, the Apple Pencil attaches to the iPad mini body with the help of magnets. The iPad mini is offered available in 64GB and 256GB variants.
