New Apple iPad Mini 6 is Changing the Game, Again!

Since its launch in September 2021, the new iPad Mini 6 has quickly become one of the most popular tablets on the global market. Taking a closer look at its upgrades and redesigns, it is easy to see why there’s such a massive demand for this device.
Let’s see how the new iPad Mini stacks up against its larger counterparts.
Power in The Palm of Your Hands
In theory, tablets are meant to be easy to carry around and used while you’re on the move, but most iPad models have always struggled to achieve this due to their large size. Both the Pro and Air are just over 9 inches long and 7 inches wide, making it too clunky for hassle-free portability and quick access. The redesigned Mini measures 7.69 x 5.3 x 0.25 inches and has a screen size of 8.3 inches, which makes this the perfect fit.
Only the Best Updates
The iPad Mini 6 is a joy to use because it’s been updated with the latest features that were previously reserved for more higher-end ranges, such as:
● Liquid Retina Display
● Storage and RAM on par with the latest iPads on the market
● Wi-Fi 6 compatibility with 5G support
● Pixel count higher than the iPad Air 4
● A system powered by the new A15 Bionic Chip
● True Tone, P3 wide colour gamut, and
● Peak brightness of 500 nits
The new Mini features an all-screen display, made possible thanks to the Home Touch ID button being scrapped. Instead, the Touch ID sensor is now located near the power button. Larger iPads also have this design, but due to their size, it has proved inconvenient, especially when you’re trying to hold the device while signing in. Thankfully, the new all-screen display of the Mini is perfect for its compact size.
The redesign also means that the new Mini now looks similar to the Air and Pro models with its flat-edged design and Liquid Retina display that stretches edge to edge.
USB-C for Better Compatibility
The Mini 6 has a USB-C port which Apple claims enables 10x faster data transfers than its predecessor. It allows for quicker charging times and better compatibility with other USB accessories, making it supremely more useful than other iPads without this port.
Apple Pencil 2 is Unlocked
Before the launch of the new Mini, the Apple Pencil 2 was exclusively reserved for the higher-end iPads, while more affordable options supported the original 2015 Apple Pencil. Although the original is of exceptional quality, charging it is somewhat inconvenient because it needs to be plugged into the Lightning port. The good news is, the new Mini is the first in the range to support the Apple Pencil 2, allowing for wirelessly charging by magnetically attaching to the side of the iPad.
If you're looking for a tablet that doesn’t compromise on power or convenience, then the iPad Mini 6 is for you!
