Global smartphone market to grow by 12% in 2021, claims report – Times of India

The global smartphone market is expected to grow by 12% in 2021, despite the industry facing a shortage of chipsets. “Backorders are building,” said Canalys Research Manager Ben Stanton. “The industry is fighting for semiconductors, and every brand will feel the pinch,” he added. Despite this, however, the report suggests that the global smartphone shipments are expected to reach 1.4 billion units this year.

apple: Apple could reveal a new iPad mini design this year – Times of India

Tech giant Apple may be working on giving the upcoming iPad mini a design overhaul, if claims by tipster Jon Prosser are to be believed.
