The Apple iPad Mini 5 is an excellent pick if you want a portable device to consume e-books and online videos while on the go. At 7.9 inches and less than a pound in weight, this iOS tablet is easy to carry around. It has a bright retina screen with a 2,048 x 1,536 resolution so you can enjoy your books with sharp text and images. Watching YouTube clips and your favorite Netflix shows on this display should also be exceedingly pleasant. We were only able to notice pixels when viewed from an unnaturally close distance.
Playing the latest games is also possible with the new Apple iPad Mini. At the time of our review, we were able to play games like Alto’s Odyssey, Assassin’s Creed: Rebellion, Marvel Strike Force, and Inside without any signs of stutter. This strong performance extends to the use of the day-to-day use of the iOS, which felt buttery smooth.
Aside from entertainment consumption, the latest Apple iPad Mini can also handle some light work. This iPad packs an A12 Bionic processor that is powerful enough to run apps like Adobe Lightroom. This chip also allows the iPad Mini to perform well when multitasking, which can be enhanced by updating to the new iPadOS. Also, this iPad can be paired with the Apple Pencil. This allows for easy sketching and note-taking without having to set the iPad down on a flat surface. And when you need a more traditional typing setup, you can pair this iOS tablet with a third-party Bluetooth keyboard.
The respectable power in the Apple iPad Mini is complemented by its decent battery life. We used it in intermittent periods for three days before we had to charge it. It should last you for up to 10 hours of constant web browsing and answering notifications. Expect the battery to drop faster when playing games or binge-watching Netflix shows.
If you are looking totoday, Amazon is the place to go. The retail giant is dropping most iPad Mini configurations to its best price. We just made it easier for you to know how much you save by comparing the prices. Grab these iPad deals now before stocks run out.
