I don't find most of those to be helpful for the form-factor.... especially for how the Mini is used in vertical markets.
All of the above + full cellular capabilities (none of this neutered ‘data only’ nonsense)! Coupled with iPadOS 15, where we could finally link the Watch to the iPad, maybe I could finally reduce the amount of devices I have.
I never use my phone; it just stays at home, plugged in, as a ‘call routing’ device. My IPP is my main device. I would love to have it take over those duties.
Id also add fID to the list. At this point, the components are cheap enough that Apple could keep the same price point. Not a deal-breaker, though.
That’s a good point! I think a Mini with tID, A14 Bionic, and an iP11 camera would keep the cellular Mini at a $499 price-point.I will add my voice to those calling for a “mini Pro” design with full cellular capabilities.
The difficulty with that is that it would surely need to be priced higher than the iPhone 12 Pro Max, since it would have nearly all the capabilities of that phone, but an even larger screen. (Maybe it would be missing some camera lenses?)
I don’t expect they will do that, of course. The likeliest outcome is a shrunken Air 4, perhaps with a newer SoC. I’ll be okay with that.
Considering that even the original iPad Air was Palpable in one hand it's probably possible. Might not be very comfortable to do though...How is it supposed to fit into the magic keyboard without looking weird as the footprint won’t match the cavity?
9 inch screen and you want to hold it onto one hand like shown? Is that even possible?

Yup, but the beauty here is the new air form factor is exactly what some of us have wanted out of a mini. I’d upgrade instantly if I didn’t just buy a 5th gen a few months back.It isn't going to be a 'mini-Pro'....It's going to be a 'mini-Air', like it's always has been.
