The big and highly-anticipated news is the latest iPad Pro is here. But what’s more interesting is that Apple has launched iPad mini 4. Now that the iPad mini 4 is officially here we can lay the rumour to rest. Here;s the full run on the fourth-generation mniature iPad specs. Pricing and launch date timeframe is also detailed.
Actually, and I mean that the iPad mini 4 was rumored to be thinner and lighter wiit an iPad Air 2-esque redesign, an A9 cpu, and an improved display. Finally, the ‘mini’ tablet from Apple is truly, minimal in size, so let’s not waste anymore time and get down to the hardware keys of the iPad mini 4.
The ultra-sleek form factor of the current flagship iPad Air has been ported across to the latest mini offering, bringing with it a stunning 6.1mm profile for iPda mini 4, compared to the 7.5mm slab that is the mini 3.
The iPad mini 4 features the same 7.9-inch stunning Retina display that made visual media on the third-gen iPad mini look sensational. With a native resolution of 2048×1536 pixels screen, produces a boasting 3.1 million pixels, equating to 326ppi (pixels-per-inch) density. However, the display technology on the mini 4 have been grabbed from the Air 2 tablet, essentially three display components combined into one panel, to create life-like images.
The latest iPad mini 4 benefits from the inclusion of the Apple’s own A8 processor and M8 motion co-pocessor, found in last year’s iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. The 64-bit architecture of the A8 chip offers up incredibly fast CPU speeds, paired together with seriously impressive graphics that makes the mini 4 tablet a significant improvement over its predecessor.
Apple continues to improve camera offerings with each generational bump, this time around thrown an 8-megapixel rear shooter with a fordward-facing 1.2-megapixel module for FaceTime HD cam on iPad mini 4. The main camera setup can support video stabilization, ability to record 1080p videos as well as Slo-mo videos at 120fps. Great!
Extended improvements followed, and will continue to be made to Touch ID. There isn’t really a best deal that can be done hardware wise to improve the functionality as the reader is already extremely efficient. The latest iPad mini flaunts the same Touch ID sensor as found in the mini 3 with any amendments to the functionality being handled software side.
The biggest selling point of the new iPad mini 4 is the fact that itwill ship with a fully pre-loaded with iOS 9 already installed. When you consider the iPad-only-features embedded within, think about Apple has done something impressive to develop iOS 9 with the iPad family in its mind. The inclusion of the Slide Over and Split View functuinality that belongs to the iPad will increase productivity and multitasking capabilities. Still got PiP, a new Picture-in-Picture tech that has caused a stir with excited iOS fans ever since it was ultimately introduced by Apple during WWDC.
Battery life on the latest and greatest iPad mnini is an extremely important aspect, and of course on any consumer device today. When talking about the portable slate like the iPad. The integrated lithium-ion cell that’s built into the iPad mini 4 provide users with up to ten hours of continuous battery life under perfect conditions.
With powerful accessories, it’s the availability of marketable that can evidently convincing a consumer to purchase a product, like iPad mini 4? To complement the latest mini tablet Apple has revamped the accompanying accessory standard by filings it physical and digital shelves up with new Smart Covers in a range of finishes, as well as a stunning Smart Case that offers a next level of production.
