2025 iPad Mini series likely to co-exist alongside a foldable version as a premium
Apple is most likely going to produce a foldable device by 2025, according to the most recent notes written by the reputable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. It is predicted to be an iPad rather than an iPhone, yet due to its high price, it won’t be able to completely replace the present Mini series. Therefore, the two items may be offered as entry-level and premium options in the Cupertino giant’s next-generation tablet lineup.
The iPad Mini is anticipated to return in late 2023 or early 2024 with a new iteration that will finally use a modern chipset. Ming-Chi Kuo, a well-known analyst with TF International Securities, believes that the series’ potential extends much farther.
By 2025, it’s anticipated that Apple would enter the foldables market, though its initial products are expected to be tablets rather than smartphones because the latter would be too expensive to produce until then.
As a result, “certain media” have predicted that the iPad Mini will be replaced by Apple’s first-generation foldable device, possibly due to size. Kuo now claims that this is unlikely to be the case because of the alleged foldable alternative’s high price.
There may therefore be a foldable and non-foldable iPad Mini as a “basic” proposition and its “premium” alternative, respectively, in or around 2025.
