iPad mini 6 pre-orders are up and running, and those who have ordered their compact tablet first will be receiving their devices as soon as this Friday. However, U.S.-based Apple customers who are still eyeing the new iPad mini 6 may have to wait a while since the shipping estimates have been extended all the way into November.
The delay may be affecting other regions as well. We tried ordering the purple iPad mini 6 with 256GB of storage and received an estimated delivery between October 21 and November 4. Yikes.
The latest generation of Apple’s compact tablet should be worth the wait. In our iPad mini 6 review, our editor Henry T. Casey highlighted the tablet’s powerful performance, portable design and bright display. The iPad mini 6 sports the same A15 Bionic chip that is seen in Apple’s latest iPhone 13 lineup and Apple Pencil 2 support. Add in long battery life and it’s easy to see why this tablet seems to be in high demand.
