Apple has finally revealed its new generation of iPad mini after 2 years since the last model was released in 2019.
This time around Apple has given a complete redesign to the iPad Mini, which now has rounded and thinner bezels just like its bigger brothers iPad Pro & iPad Air, and comes in a new array of finishes, including space grey, pink, purple, and starlight.
The iPad Mini will now support Apple pencil and will have a TouchID on the power button, as well as a USB-C port instead of a Lightning port.
In terms of processing power, the iPad mini will be up to 50% more powerful than its predecessor, thanks to the new A15 Bionic chip with six-core CPU and five-core GPU.
The iPad Mini will also feature an all-screen design with a 21.08-centimetre (8.3-inch) Liquid Retina display with a P3 wide color gamut, True Tone, and 500 nits of brightness.
It has upgraded cameras, mainly the focus being on the front camera, which would now feature a 12MP ultra-wide camera with a 122° field of view which can be used for center stage like the other iPads. The rear camera is a 12MP camera now with support for 4K videos.
The iPad Mini has WiFi 6 + Cellular models that now support 5G (Limited to 4G LTE in India) with pricing to start from Rs 46,900 for the WiFi model and Rs 60,900 for WiFi + Cellular model.
The iPad Mini really complements the existing lineup of iPads provided by Apple. We will have to see if the normal iPad also gets this new redesign next year or not.
