Apple has unveiled a new iPad mini with an all-new design, similar to that of the iPad Air.
The 2021 iPad mini now has an 8.3-inch display with wide colour, True Tone and 500 nits brightness. It comes in new colours purple, pink, starlight and space grey.
The design includes Touch ID into the power button. iPad mini also now has USB-C like the iPad Air, while 5G networking is now available as well for cellular models.
iPad mini gets a 12MP camera on the back with Focus Pixels and f1.8 aperture, plus a True Tone flash. There’s now Smart HDR and better image quality, plus you can record videos in 4K.
The front camera gets a 12MP Ultra Wide camera, which also now supports Center Stage, just like the new iPad, a feature from iPad Pro.
A new stereo speaker system is also available in both portrait and landscape.
New smart folio covers will be available for iPad mini, while the tablet now supports Apple Pencil second-gen, which attaches to the side of the tablet.
