Neither tablet has been this cheap since(Opens in a new tab) early May(Opens in a new tab) and probably, maybe won’t dip any lower come Prime Day, so scooping one up is a smart move. (Also, some colors will arrive within a day or two if you need an impressive last-minute Father’s Day gift for a tech-savvy dad.)
Promising up to 80 percent faster performance than the previous generation (from 2019), this iPad mini features a zippy A15 Bionic chip, an all-screen design with bright 8.3-inch Liquid Retina display, a versatile USB-C port, an upgraded selfie camera with Center Stage, Apple Pencil support, and a battery life of up to 10 hours per charge. The only thing it’s really missing is a 3.5mm headphone jack (RIP), but the overall package was enough to earn it one of our coveted Mashable’s Choice Awards and the following review from senior editor Stan Schroeder:
The iPad mini is as close to perfection as an iPad can get. It’s a smaller iPad Air that does nearly everything better. It’s missing some Pro features, but few that I would pay extra for. It’s practical, pretty, and portable.
iPad OS 16 is set to arrive sometime in July, FWIW, bringing with it “an entirely new multitasking experience” and “desktop-class apps.” Culture reporter Elizabeth de Luna has the deets.
