Radical new Apple iPad mini could steal the show in 2021

Poor old iPad mini. The tiny device has seemed somewhat neglected of late, with every other iPad in Apple's tablet line up getting an update in 2020. Indeed, compared with the edge-to-edge design of both the iPad Air and iPad Pro, the 2019 mini looks positively old school. But if a new 3D render is anything to go by, the mini could end up stealing the show in 2021.

Supposedly based on leaked CAD drawings, the new render (below) depicts an iPad mini the same size and shape as the current model. But the similarities end there – with an all-screen front and bezels even smaller than the iPad Pro's, this is a whole different (miniature) beast. Could it be the first iPad mini to hit our best drawing tablets list?
