Apple iPad Mini 4 Review

Apple iPad Mini 4 is considered the best small tablet Apple has ever created and it is also considered as one of the best 7-inch tablets. If you are still new in the mini range devices and you do not know whether you want to choose the large or the small model, the first thing that you need to know is that this mini iPad is a tablet which can actually fit in your pocket.

This mini iPad is available but is still expensive with £399 or $399 or AU$579 with the 128GB and Wi-Fi-only model. This mini iPad from Apple also has a boost to its storage, so if you have not yet gotten into the smaller iPad range, you will now get it by default in 128GB capacity in both Wi-Fi as well as cellular variants.

iPad Mini 4 Design

The design of this Apple iPad Mini 4 is still borrowing the same design style from the original iPad mini. This mini 4 has the same swooping curved edged and also has the ceramic-like back of the tablet.

Just like the iPad Air 2, this mini 4 has a little bit of thickness shaved off compared to the previous generation to make the mini 4 becomes even more portable and light. From 331g, the mini 4 is down to 299g which makes it even easier to slip into the inside of your pocket.

The screen of this mini iPad is still encased with the same large bezels just like other iPads but with less down the horizontal sides to make it looks sleeker. Meanwhile, the volume and power buttons are easy to be found without even looking.


iPad Mini 4 Performance

The Apple iPad Mini 4 is considered a powerful tablet because the user can glide through most tasks easily. This iPad Mini 4 also scored 3126 on Geekbench 3 which is over 200 more than other iPhones such as iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. When Apple releases iPadOS, this new operating system is designed specifically for iPad tablets which will make iPads become powerful devices in their own range.

Obviously, there is no 3D Touch in this iPad Mini 4. The 3D Touch is only accessible on the iPhone 6S. You can also see that there is a big change in the interface which is the split-screen. The idea is that you swipe in from the right-hand side of the screen and get a list of all the apps which are capable of running, side-by-side with what you are doing.
