On his newly launched Front Page Tech website, leaker Jon Prosser has shared renders showing off the alleged design of the next-generation iPad mini, which he says are based on schematics, CAD files, and real images of the device.

In line with details shared earlier this month by Bloomberg's Mark Gurman and Debby Wu, Prosser claims that the new iPad mini will feature slimmer bezels around the display and no home button, with Touch ID relocated to the power button like the latest iPad Air. The report adds that the new iPad mini will switch from a Lightning connector to USB-C and will be equipped with "dramatically improved" speakers.

According to Prosser, the new iPad mini will be powered by the A14 chip, support 5G, and have compatibility with a new, smaller Apple Pencil. The device will launch by the end of the year in three colors, including black, silver, and gold.

The report claims the new iPad mini will have dimensions of 206.3mm x 137.8mm x 6.1mm, but no display size was offered. The current iPad mini has a 7.9-inch display, and Bloomberg has claimed the new model could have an 8.5- to 9-inch display. The rear shell looks similar to the current iPad Air, with a single camera and a Smart Connector.

Prosser has a mixed track record with Apple rumors. He accurately revealed that the new iMac would be available in a variety of colors, but he was mostly recently wrong about a new MacBook Pro being announced at WWDC this week.

until these is more evidence of this device existing I’ll hold my excitement.. Prosser is annoying as anything and don’t trust his leaks since he was so sure about the MacBook Pro announcement and got trolled by Apple for it.

however, this Mini looks great and can’t wait to see if it’s true..

Outside of the recent MBPro non-announcement at WWDC, Prosser was spot on with a ton of crap. I guess his status will be confirmed once the re-designed Air and Pro launch. His iMacs were close to spot on so those will be the tie breakers.

But from my experience with his leaks, I'm setting money aside for this mini! Would fit perfectly in my lineup.
