The Apple iPad Mini with Retina Display

Apple iPad Mini with Retina Display

Apple iPad Mini with Retina Display has arrived.

The Apple iPad Mini with Retina Display is certainly a mouthful of a title. However, it does tell us what the iPad Mini with Retina Display ( previously labelled the iPad Mini 2 ) is all about. You guessed it now comes with a Retina Display and supersedes the enormously successful iPad Mini.

This gives the Apple iPad Mini with Retina Display a PPI of 326 which is double that of its predecessor, the iPad Mini. The resolution is 2048 x 1535 which matches that of the newly announced iPad Air. The display screen is 7.9 inches.

The power comes from 64-bit A7 CPU ( the same as in the iPhone 5S ) and as it is more energy efficient this pumps up the time required for a recharge to around ten hours which is impressive as it actually has a smaller battery than its predecessor. We never expected to see a TouchID sensor on the The iPad Mini with Retina Display and that’s the case.

Along with the two versions to choose from and which RAM you need the only other choice is to pick a colour. There are just 2 choices : Space grey or silver.

Pricing for the iPad Mini with Retina Display whether you choose the Wi-Fi only version or you pick the 4G version and what amount of memory toy select.
