Apple iPad Mini 4

The new Apple iPad Mini 4 might be small for a tablet, but it certainly packs a punch in terms of capabilities. Just like all the current Apple devices, the Apple iPad Mini 4 shares a similar design concept with its curved edges, metallic highlights and elegance. One of its selling points is its impressive thin profile and unbelievably low weight of only 298.8 g. The beautiful 7.9 inch LED-backlit IPS LCD features a scratch-resistant glass. Colors are perfectly saturated and details are sharp. The iOS 9 device comes with an Apple A8 dual core processor clocked at 1.5 GHz, 2 GB RAM, a PowerVR GX6450 quad-core GPU and several storage options consisting of 16, 64 and 128 GB. Camera functionality on the Apple iPad Mini 4 is superb with the rear 8 megapixel shooter or the 1.2 megapixel front camera. The tablet also uses TouchID, which utilizes your fingerprint as a secure password. Audio quality is decent with clear highs and mid-range. Other features are A-GPS, Bluetooth 4.0 and USB 2.0. The Apple iPad Mini 4 comes with a non-removable Li-Ion battery rated at 5124 mAh.

From an unloved stepchild to a Shining Star? According to some rumors, Apple would discontinue its iPad Mini entirely. There was hardly any mention of the Mini at the last keynote event. There was not even a news item. Nevertheless: The iPad Mini 4 has arrived - and more effort has been put into it than expected. It is even allowed to bear the iOS 9 banner.

There’s life in the old dog yet. It has been very quiet around the small iPad lately. Some people even claimed that the Mini could be cancelled. Phil Schiller from Apple only mentioned the iPad Mini 4 with two sentences during the keynote. With that in mind, the new iPad Mini performs better than expected in our review, but there is still a respectable distance to the iPad Air 2.

Now discontinued, the iPad mini 4 is a great little tablet if a little long in the tooth. Now replaced by the iPad mini with its A12 Bionic processor, we'd only recommend getting the iPad mini 4 if you can find it very cheap and don't need a lot of processing power.

Apple iPad Mini 4: Is It Good for Business?

Of course, iOS 9 isn't exclusive to the iPad mini 4; the OS upgrade is coming to all Apple tablets except the original iPad, which launched in 2010. But if you don't already own an iPad, the update provides some good incentives to consider getting one now.

The iPad mini 4 is a great little tablet that comes in at a price that reflects its quality and capabilities. It looks gorgeous, is a breeze to use and leaves little to be desired. It's a shame that Apple has kept the 16GB model, as we were really hoping that the starter model would be 32GB at £319, but we'd still recommend the £399 64GB model of iPad mini 4 over the 16GB iPad Air 2.

Please do not think this is an attempt to belittle the iPad mini 4,. The smaller iPad is still one of our favorite tablets, and there is no question it tops most lists when comparing 8-inch tablets, if that is what you’re after, the iPad mini 4 is a great device for you. However, if you’ve only been considering the smaller tablet based on price, and do not need the power in the pro line, take a look at the iPad Air 2 before you spend your money.

Apple continues to sell the iPad mini 2 for £100 less than the iPad mini 4, but the latest iOS mini tablet is better value unless money is very tight or you just want an iOS device for undemanding or niche tasks such as point of sale or digital signage duties. The iPad mini 4’s improved camera, performance and screen are all worth paying extra for.

Although the iPad Pro 9.7 is clearly a superior tablet here, it's only worth spending the extra on if you really need that better screen and you'll make use of the performance for proper work tasks. Then there are the additional costs of accessories like the Pencil and Smart Keyboard which enable this. Go for the iPad mini 4 if you're only to use the device for casual things like gaming and web browsing.

After the slightly disappointing iPad Mini 3, Apple is back on form with the iPad Mini 4, which is hands-down the best small tablet that you can buy. If you're looking for a bit of a bargain, the iPad Mini 2 is still available. It's screen's not as good, there's no TouchID and it's a little slower, but it's great value at £259 for the 32GB version. There's also the similar-sized Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0, which is the only Android to come close to the iPad Mini 4, although it's a touch slower and the build quality isn't as good.

If money is no object then the iPad mini 4 is the superior tablet here with all-round quality on offer. That's not to say the Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 is bad, though. We're really impressed with it and you can save a lot of cash this way. However, prepare yourself for a slightly odd Android experience which requires some tweaking due to its Chinese roots.

But is it a compelling upgrade option? At the very least, you’re going to shell out $399.00 to pick up the iPad mini 4, which is a Wi-Fi only model with a pathetic 16GB of internal storage. The price, of course, can go up to as much as $729.00 for the 128GB model with cellular connectivity. Needless to say, if you're currently sporting an iPad mini 3, or even 2, and don't notice any meaningful problems with their operation, you might want to hold off from getting the mini 4 – sure, it upgrades the hardware across the board and has side by side multitasking, but that doesn't seem to be that much of an incentive to upgrade from its still rather solid.

Apple has done its usual trick of lowering the specs where it can - the older chip is annoying - and should have launched the iPad mini 4 a year ago as the mini 3. But that doesn't stop it being great to use, and for the price it's a nice entry point into the iPad world.

It's hard to really see who the iPad mini is actually for, and who it would suit better than either a big iPhone or a bigger iPad. Apple has done an amazing job creating a small, powerful tablet. But it feels like, for most people, a small powerful tablet just isn't useful enough to make it a recommended buy.

The Apple iPad Mini 4

I wasn't very excited about the iPad Mini 3 when Apple announced it last year, as it was just the iPad Mini 2 with Touch ID while the iPad Air 2 was a substantial upgrade from the iPad Air in many ways. The iPad Mini 4 represents an update on the same scale as the Air to Air 2 transition, and it's both highly appreciated and arguably overdue.

On the whole, we think the faster components of the iPad mini 4 are well worth the additional spend. It'll get software upgrades from Apple for a longer time thanks to the slightly faster chipset and additional RAM. Spend the additional cash and get the new model.

So do Apple’s petite tablets make sense any more? I’ve been running with the iPhone 6s Plus in tandem with the mini 4, just to see how often I’d reach for the mini’s extra 2.5 inches of screen. In the face of phablet-sized competition, you might think that the mini would prove as useful as a (particularly well-crafted) paperweight.

The iPad mini 4 is faster, slimmer and more accomplished than its iPad mini 3 predecessor. This time around the mini succeeds in finding is place, despite not being as altogether powerful as the iPad Air 2. For most that doesn't mean the mini is a compromise; this is as much iPad as many will need. It's a lovely, compact tablet with anti-reflective screen coating that makes it good for watching movies, playing games, and reading or writing on the go.

The new iPad 4 offers great power for a reasonable price, and we'd be tempted to pay the extra £100 to upgrade from an A7 to A8 processor. It'll offer much better performance in the long run, and you will get better upgrades in the long run. Touch ID is a nice extra, and it's good for unlocking your iPad. Although you can't use your iPad mini to make in-store purchases with Apple Pay (like an iPhone) so Touch ID is really a quicker way to unlock your iPad mini. Even so, we'd pay the extra £100 to upgrade if possible. The faster CPU will give better performance over the long run.

What’s the difference between Apple’s tablets?
Source: PC Advisor English
The iPad mini 4 is the “best” iPad mini, but that’s from a technical standpoint. If you’re happy to trade off performance, screen quality, camera quality, and a Touch ID sensor (plus the more subtle differences in the table) then the £100 saving on the iPad mini 2 means it could be the one for you. The upgrades arguably make the mini 4 worth that extra £100 and it will no doubt be a more future-proof purchase if you care about being able to upgrade to the latest version of iOS. We expect the mini 4 to get at least the next two versions – iOS 10 and iOS 11. The iPad mini 3 is only a good deal if you can find a refurbished model at a low price – i.e. not much more than the equivalent iPad mini 2.

After a yearlong wait, we finally have a properly upgraded iPad Mini. While it adopted the iPad Air 2's super-slim aesthetic and got a similarly great screen, the iPad Mini 4 makes do with Apple's dual-core A8 chipset. Performance is remarkably solid, though, and the smaller battery inside doesn't do the tablet a disservice.

There are cheaper tablets - cheaper iPads even - but if you can afford to buy the iPad mini 4 you won't be disappointed. It finally has a great screen and while it can't match the more powerful iPad Air 2, it's got more than enough poke to satisfy demanding users. The rear camera is decent and a big step up from many cheaper tablets. With great build quality and battery life on top, it's hard to fault the new mini so unless you want to wait to see if Apple launches an iPad Air 3, or you want the Air 2's bigger screen, it's a good buy.

The iPad mini 4 is an excellent choice in a category that's slowly being replaced by larger phones like the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus and the 5.7-inch Galaxy Note 5. Starting at $399, the mini 4 attempts to warrant its hefty price tag with a high-quality screen, a premium build, and Apple's unbeatable app selection. And it mostly succeeds. That said, the iPad mini 2 is still available at a considerable discount, and while it won't run iOS 9 with quite the same smoothness, it's still an attractive option when you consider what you actually do with a tablet: browse the Web, watch movies, answer emails, and maybe play some games. For most people it's a better choice.

The iPad mini 4 is the best iPad mini yet, and easily one of your best options in this category. But at $399 and up, it's too close to the iPad Air 2's pricing to highly recommend. We have both devices in house right now, and the Air 2 feels nearly as light and comfortable in hand, with a 53 percent bigger display. With retailers often discounting the iPad Air 2 into the iPad mini 4's price range (if you live in the US, Staples is a good store to keep an eye on), it's hard to recommend going with the mini 4, unless you actually prefer the smaller size.

Apple iPad Mini 5

The Apple iPad mini 5 (2019) features a thin, light and portable design that makes it the perfect on-the-go companion. At barely 300 grams and a case 6.1 millimetres thin, it is easy to carry with one hand or take out of a pocket or bag whenever inspiration strikes. The A12 Bionic chip with Neural Engine enables a remarkable level of power and intelligence from the device. It uses real-time machine learning to recognise patterns, make predictions and learn from experience. With all this power, users can run apps like Adobe Photoshop CC, experience augmented reality or play an immersive game with some serious gaming machine graphics. As for storage capacity, it comes with 64GB and 256GB options. The iPad mini packs over 3 million pixels into a 7.9‑inch display. It has a 2048x1536 pixel resolution at 326 pixels per inch (ppi) and 500 nits of brightness. Whether users are reading in the park or editing a video in their home office, the high brightness, wide colour range and anti-reflective coating offer true-to-life detail and text. And True Tone dynamically adjusts the white balance so images look natural in any light. The front and back cameras in the iPad mini let users take vivid photos and cinematic videos. It has an 8-megapixel back camera with ƒ/2.4 aperture and a 7-megapixel front camera with ƒ/2.2 aperture, which supports 1080p HD video recording at 30 fps. But the fun does not stop there. One can make FaceTime calls with friends, scan documents and mark them up, or even use augmented reality to plan out the living room decor.

The Apple Pencil brings the iPad mini to life. It turns the iPad mini into a take‑anywhere digital notebook. Users can jot down notes, sign documents and fill out forms, or capture most creative ideas by drawing, painting or sketching on the go. iCloud keeps things like photos, files and notes safe, current and conveniently available on all devices. And the Files app lets users manage all their files in iCloud Drive and on the iPad mini in one central location. Like every Apple product, the iPad mini was designed with privacy and security in mind. Touch ID makes unlocking the iPad mini simple and secure: Users can just place their finger on the Touch ID sensor and they are good to go. The iPad mini comes with accessibility features that support vision, interaction, hearing and learning needs. Like VoiceOver, which tells users what is happening on their screen, and Switch Control, which lets users interact with the iPad mini without touching it. In conclusion, the Apple iPad mini 5 is upgraded from its predecessor with greater performance and Apple Pencil support, which makes it the best iPad mini to date. However, the price tag is also quite high as opposed to other tablets in the market, which is expected - it is thus suitable for users with a higher budget.

The iPad mini (2019) is a fantastic tablet overall. It's definitely not geared towards heavy productivity-oriented use, but it's almost perfect for casual use. Its form factor is perfect for commutes or travelling, and it's got really powerful hardware so performance and battery life are excellent as well. The design is pretty outdated at this point but we don't think that's going to a dealbreaker for anyone.

I have tested the iPad Mini 5 for well over a week, and I can confidently say Apple’s mini tablet is better than any other Android tablet on the market.

At Rs 34,900, the iPad Mini delivers more than it promises.

The iPad mini proves that this form factor is still desirable and useful even in an age of larger smartphones. With the A12 processor at an affordable base price, Apple’s smallest tablet is a tiny powerhouse of a computer. Yes, the design is seven years old but with the addition of Apple Pencil support and with decent battery life, Apple has breathed new life back into the iPad mini. Not everyone wants or needs to spend £1,000 on an iPad Pro.

The iPad mini lives on in a very capable package that includes the blazingly fast A12 chip. It's the cheapest hardware with Apple's latest processor. The ageing design is a downside, but this iPad design is a certified classic and we don’t think it’ll put many people off – it doesn’t us. With a headphone jack, outstanding performance, Pencil support and unrivalled portability in the tablet market, the iPad mini is a surprisingly excellent upgrade on a product we thought was about to bow out.

90% iPad mini (2019) review: Petite, portable power
Source: Macworld.co.uk English
The exterior design of the iPad hasn't changed much since 2015, which means it doesn't have some of Apple's better recent tablet features. Still, the A12 Bionic chip packs a heavy punch and support for the first-gen Apple Pencil makes it a more versatile tablet than before.

For those of you who are new to the mini altogether and looking for a tablet of this size, you truly can’t do better than the latest iPad mini, and the $399 and $549 prices for the 64 GB and 256 GB, respectively, will deliver you value for years to come.

If you need something more, you might be surprised at how capable this tiny device is, although the Air or Pro line remain smarter investments for being productive. That said, if you’re flush with cash and want an additional iPad that’s very pocketable, powerful, and good for on the move, this update instantly shifts the mini from ‘miss’ to ‘hit’ – even if it looks like it beamed in from 2015.

85% Apple iPad mini review (2019): Still the best small tablet
Source: Engadget English
It took Apple three years to update the iPad mini, and the improvements here mean the wait was mostly worth it. This time, Apple gave its small tablet the same performance as its flagship iPhone XS, an improved screen, and support for its Apple Pencil. That makes for a definitively modern iPad experience, but the mini’s dated design makes the tablet feel a little older than it should. And beyond that, Apple hasn’t broken any new ground here; everything good about the new mini has appeared in the company’s other products before. All told, this is the best small tablet you can buy right now. It’s just a little light on the thrills.

Review: iPad mini 2019 is a modern version of a small classic
Source: Six Colours English
The new iPad mini doesn’t need to be all things to all people. It doesn’t even need to be the cheapest iPad in the product line. It just needs to be small and light while still providing the power of a modern iPad, and it does that quite well.

iPad mini 2019 review roundup: The best compact tablet

The iPad mini certainly isn’t Apple’s best tablet, but it is the best compact tablet. If you want a slate that’s super-portable, offers great performance, and sports great design, there’s really only one option.

Still, some people may value the 9.7-inch iPad's ample display size over the 7.9-inch iPad mini's screen. As a result, I'd argue the iPad mini's audience is somewhat limited. The tablet is perfect for a subset of users interested in using a tablet for reading, watching videos and maybe some light web browsing and note taking, but that also own a substantially smaller smartphone they carry around with them on a daily basis.
