ijustine ipad mini test

In mid-March, Apple introduced two new iPads, the 5th generation of Air 3 and mini. For the latter, mini-users waited for three and a half years because no updates have been received for this size class since the 4th generation. But now the new model came as salvation, which did not change anything externally, but it became absolutely fantastic internally.

Mini just got mightier

iPad mini is beloved for its size and capability. And now there are even more reasons to love it. The A12 Bionic chip with Neural Engine. A 7.9‑inch Retina display with True Tone. And Apple Pencil, so you can capture your biggest ideas wherever they come to you. It’s still iPad mini. There’s just more of it than ever.

For many products it may not be worth switching from generation to generation, as there is no difference in knowledge, but now between the last mini and the present, three and a half years have passed. That is, there is actually any mini, it is worth replacing it because you will experience a brutal difference in performance, the display is also miles better and of course Apple Pencil support is also a huge thing. If you have previously loved this size and do not bother that the device has not changed anything externally, you will not be disappointed now.
