Apple today introduced the powerful new iPad mini — with a larger 8.3-inch Liquid Retina display — in four gorgeous finishes.
Featuring the brand new A15 Bionic chip, the new iPad mini delivers up to 80 percent faster performance than the previous generation, making it the most capable iPad mini ever.
A new USB-C port allows faster connectivity, and cellular models with 5G bring more flexible mobile workflows.
New advanced cameras, Center Stage, and support for Apple Pencil (2nd generation) enable new ways for users to capture photos and videos, communicate with loved ones, and jot down their ideas when creativity strikes.
The new iPad mini is available to order beginning today and will be in stores beginning Friday, September 24.
“With its ultra-portable design and wide range of uses from everyday tasks to creative and enterprise applications, there’s nothing else like iPad mini,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing.
“With a new all-screen Liquid Retina display, a massive boost in performance, new advanced cameras on the front and back, Center Stage, USB-C, 5G, and support for Apple Pencil, the new iPad mini is a huge leap forward that can be held in the palm of your hand.”
New All-Screen Design in Four Gorgeous Finishes:
The new iPad mini delivers an amazing experience in a gorgeous new array of finishes — pink, starlight, purple, and space gray. iPad mini features a larger 8.3-inch Liquid Retina display with narrow borders, all while keeping the same compact footprint.
A15 Bionic Brings Powerful Performance to iPad mini:
iPad mini gets a huge performance boost from the new A15 Bionic chip, with its incredibly efficient design that delivers all-day battery life.
Center Stage Comes to iPad mini with New Advanced Cameras:
The Center Stage experience on iPad Pro is now available on iPad mini, so users can enjoy even more engaging video calls.
An updated Ultra Wide front camera with a new 12MP sensor and a much larger field of view enables Center Stage, which automatically pans the camera to keep users in view as they move around. When others join in, the camera detects them too, and smoothly zooms out to easily include them in the conversation.
5G and USB-C for Faster Connectivity:
With 5G now available on iPad mini, customers can do even more with faster wireless connectivity on the go. 5G allows iPad mini to reach peak speeds of up to 3.5Gbps in ideal conditions.
Users can now stay connected and be even more productive wherever they are — from everyday activities like friends playing games, to field service technicians working onsite.
Combined with continued support for Gigabit LTE and eSIM, iPad mini offers incredible flexibility when users need to get connected. Wi-Fi 6 ensures even faster Wi-Fi connections as well.
