9to5Mac has learnt some exclusive information on Apple's upcoming iPad mini 6.

Sources familiar with the matter claim that the iPad mini 6 will come with A15, the same chip set as the iPhone 13 lineup. A more powerful A15X variant is believed to be in the pipeline for other iPad models.

Apple is expected to replace the Lightning port with USB-C on the iPad mini 6 and equip the tablet with Smart Connector. This means accessories compatible with Smart Connector for the iPad mini 6 could be announced alongside the tablet.
