The iPad mini 6 is a tiny powerhouse, and different people will find different ways to use it. The essential accessories for you will absolutely depend on how and where you use your iPad mini 6. If you're going to be doing a lot of creating, (hand) writing/note-taking, drawing, sketching, or painting, you'll certainly want an Apple Pencil 2 to go along with your iPad.

My iPad does quite a bit of traveling with me, so choosing one of the best cases for your iPad 6 is important. Choose the one that suits your needs the best, but I'm traveling with the ESR Ultra Slim Trifold iPad mini 6 Case right now and it's perfect for popping into my carry-on. It adds very little bulk to my iPad mini 6 and yet I feel the tablet is well-protected. It comes in a handful of nice colors from which to choose.

Keep in mind that the iPad mini 6 has a different form factor from all of the previous models. That means that any older cases or other form-fitted accessories are unlikely to fit.
