Apple's next iPad mini expected before mid-2024

The rumors that a folding iPad will replace the iPad mini and believes that Apple has a new one in the works.

In a series of Tweets on Tuesday morning, Kuo briefly discussed what he sees as the future of the foldable iPad. 

Specifically, the price difference between the iPad mini and a foldable device is the issue. 

Apple is working on a new iPad mini with a better processor being the main selling point. 

Shipments may begin as early as the 2023 holiday season but may slip into early 2024.

"Right now it doesn't make sense for Apple to make a foldable iPhone," said CCS Insight chief of research Ben Wood 

Wood also believed Apple would ship a folding iPad before a foldable iPhone. 

He said a folding iPhone "will be a super high risk for Apple." 

Apple has "no option but to react because the trend toward foldables is gathering momentum." 

Going for a foldable iPad would be an educational release for Apple
