Apple’s all-new”iPad mini 6″ will feature an 8.3-inch display, up from the current 7.9-inch display, according to Ross Young at Display Supply Chain Consultants.
As we published earlier today, iPad mini 6 is 8.3".

The actual form factor of the iPad mini 6 is not expected to change. This means the 8.3-inch display will come in the same physical size as the iPad mini 5, with the larger screen size being made possible by the removal of the home button, as Bloomberg has previously reported.
In terms of design, the iPad mini will likely resemble the latest iPad Air and iPad Pro with slimmer bezels and no home button. It’s unclear whether the new iPad mini 6 will feature Touch ID in the power button or Face ID support. Bloomberg has described this as “the biggest redesign in the nine-year history” of the iPad mini.
