At the September presentation, Apple showed an updated iPad mini. The device has changed significantly: first of all, the design was redesigned.
The device supports the second generation Apple Pencil, which is magnetised on the side. The novelty also received an 8.3-inch IPS-display Liquid Retina with thin bezels and True Tone technology. The screen brightness reaches 500 nits.
Inside the tablet is the Apple A15 Bionic chip, which makes the device 80% more powerful than its predecessor. Lightning on the bottom has replaced the USB Type-C port. Also iPad Mini received support for 5G networks thanks to the new modem. The processor has a built-in Neural Engine chip, which accelerates the execution of tasks requiring machine learning.
The power button has a built-in Touch ID sensor, and the audio system now consists of speakers on both the top and bottom – honest stereo is supported. Wi-Fi has been upgraded to version 6 here.
The rear camera is a 12MP sensor with True Tone flash and Smart HDR for improved image quality in poor conditions. The front wide-angle camera also received a 12-megapixel sensor.
