Apple reveals new iPad Mini with Retina Display
Apple has updated the second-generation iPad Mini and included a Retina Display to the device along with a faster processor.
The iPad Mini has been a hit since it was launched a year ago but Apple has taken it to the next step with the introduction of a new model which will include the high resolution Retina Display.
The 7.9-inch screen has the same 2048 x 1536 resolution as the iPad Air’s 9.7-inch display.
iPad Mini, which will go on sale in late November, now includes the faster A7 64-bit processor aboard the iPad Air and the iPhone 5 which offers greater speed without compromising the battery life.
The A7 processor ramps up performance by up to four times and improves graphics performance by up to eight times.
The device maintains its svelte dimensions – 7.5mm thick – and also offers the same 10-hour battery performance.
Also included with the new iPad Mini is a FaceTime HD camera for even better quality video calls and the 5-megapixel rear iSight camera.
The original iPad Mini will still be available but with only 16GB capacity once the iPad Mini with Retina Display is introduced.
The iPad Mini with Retina Display will be priced at $479 (16GB wi-fi), $629 (16GB wi-fi + cellular), $598 (32GB wi-fi), $749 (32GB wi-fi + cellular), $699 (64GB wi-fi), $849 (64GB wi-fi + cellular), $799 (128GB wi-fi), $949 (128GB wi-fi + cellular).
The iPad Mini 16GB will be priced at $349 (16GB wi-fi) and $499 (16GB wi-fi + cellular).
