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.
