- The iPad Mini with Retina Display comes with a remarkable screen resolution and there has been no drop in pixels. Even though it has a smaller screen size compared to the Air. The iPad Mini's 2048x1536 resolution equals nearly 326 pixels per inch, which translates into even better pixel density. If you are one of those who likes to read a great deal, then, this is definitely a welcome change.
- Another additional highlight is the 64-bit A7 processor. The presence of an M7 co-processor helps track motion and could be used for motion-aware apps. This helps reduce the strain on the battery life.
- In comparison to the last Mini, it has a better front facing camera. There is an extra microphone on its back that adjusts itself. At the same time emphasizing on the surrounding audio, regardless of the fact, if the front facing or rear camera is being used.
- There is an improved LTE Connectivity, internationally for all the LTE models and an improved MIMO Wi-Fi antenna (However, no 802.11ac wireless).
- Another aspect that is quite promising is the speed. If you are an avid gamer or someone who likes using Apps frequently, then, iPad Mini with Retina Display, delivers a smooth performance.
- It lacks the finger print testing touch ID button.
- If one were to have a good look the iPad Mini with Retina Display, then, there isn’t much change. Externally, it looks a lot like the old mini. It has a similar basic compact design.
- Sometimes, the viewing space on the Mini can get crammed because of the extra letter boxing and screen size.
