Apple’s current iPad lineup consists of several models. There is the smallest iPad mini, the iPad, the iPad Air, and the iPad Pro. However, there could soon be a fifth iPad model, or at least that’s what a post on Korean blog Naver seems to suggest where they claim that Apple could be working on an alleged iPad mini Pro.
The iPad mini is one of the cheaper iPad models that are available and while the smaller form factor used to be popular in the past, these days Apple’s iPad Pro seems to be gaining more attention. To that end, we had even heard rumors that Apple could even discontinue the iPad mini series, but recent rumors suggested that Apple could be bumping the display size.
However, this report not only suggests that the iPad mini lineup will continue to exist, but it will even introduce a “Pro” version. We’re not sure what so “Pro” about this model, but perhaps it could support the Apple Pencil and be a more powerful iPad except in a smaller form factor, but couldn’t Apple just release an iPad Pro with a smaller display instead of adding to the confusion?
There have been some rumors suggesting that Apple could introduce a mini LED iPad mini so perhaps this could be it, but either way since we’re hearing about this for the first time, we’ll maintain a healthy dose of skepticism for now.
