There’s more to mini than meets the eye. The new iPad mini 4 puts uncompromising performance and potential in your hand. It’s thinner and lighter than ever before, yet powerful enough to help you take your ideas even further.
iPad mini 4 puts everything you love about iPad into an incredibly sleek and portable design. So you can enjoy FaceTime calls with friends or get work done, wherever and whenever you want.
iPad mini 4 is powered by an A8 chip with second-generation 64-bit desktop-class architecture that can handle even your most demanding apps. Whether you’re editing a video, browsing photos, or both, your experience will be smooth and seamless.
The iSight camera in iPad mini 4 delivers advanced optics, an improved sensor and an Apple-designed image signal processor. It also includes handy features like panorama, time-lapse video, slo-mo, and burst and timer modes. The front-facing FaceTime HD camera has been redesigned too, with a refined sensor and larger pixels for even better low-light performance. The upshot? All your photos and videos – and video calls and selfies – look incredibly vivid.
iPad mini 4 uses Touch ID technology to turn your fingerprint into the perfect unforgettable password. So you can unlock your device with just one touch and keep your personal data secure, even if you share your iPad with someone else. Touch ID also lets you make secure purchases in iTunes and the App Store.
iPad mini 4 runs iOS 9, the most intuitive, advanced and secure mobile operating system in the world. If it feels like iOS 9 was made for iPad, it’s because it was. With improved apps and new features like Slide Over, Split View and Picture in Picture, iOS 9 helps you get more done in powerful yet simple ways. Whether you’re checking messages while answering email or creating a presentation while watching the big match, iOS 9 helps you get more out of iPad than ever before.
The Home button on iPad mini 4 is made from a sapphire crystal surrounded by a stainless steel ring. When you touch the button, the steel ring detects your finger and the crystal sends an image of your fingerprint to a sensor. Software then reads the ridges of your print and confirms a match. And it all happens in the blink of an eye.
iPad mini 4 comes with powerful built-in apps for the things you do every day, like surfing the web, checking email, editing movies and photos, writing reports and reading books. And there are even more incredible apps on the App Store designed to take advantage of its Retina display (instead of simply stretching out iPhone apps). So whether it’s photography, gaming, travelling or managing your finances, you’ll find an app that will help you do it better.
The LCD layer is now closer than ever to your eyes (and your fingers), so when you touch the screen it truly feels as if you’re touching your content. We’ve also improved the sensitivity of the screen, so it tracks your finger even more accurately, especially when you make quick gestures. Which means everything you do – playing games, surfing the web, enjoying photos and videos – feels more natural, immediate and immersive.
iPad mini 4 features a custom-designed anti-reflective coating that reduces glare by 56 per cent compared with previous iPad displays. In virtually any kind of environment – offices, classrooms, the outdoors – everything is clearer and more readable.
Something that performs this beautifully deserves an equally beautiful finish. iPad mini 4 comes in silver, space grey and gold. So it’s sure to stand out no matter where you take it.
The A8 chip has an astonishing 60 per cent faster graphics performance than the A7 chip. So iPad mini 4 boasts graphics once possible only on desktop computers and gaming consoles. Graphics-intensive games and video editing apps run superbly, and they look gorgeous on the beautiful Retina display.
Everything runs better on iPad mini 4. And thanks to the A8 chip, graphics-intensive apps are, well, intense. Video editing, modelling and design apps, and games – especially games – come to life, with incredible responsiveness, fluid motion and fleet performance quality.
When you’re in motion, the new M8 motion coprocessor continuously measures data from the accelerometer, compass, gyroscope and a new barometer. This offloads work from the A8 chip for improved power efficiency. The motion coprocessor also continuously calibrates all five sensors, so when you want to play a game or use the Maps app, iPad mini 4 is ready and able.
Shape up your text in no time with an all-new Shortcut Bar, convenient editing tools and a handy new way to select text with Multi-Touch gestures. And now when you use a wireless keyboard with your iPad, you can enjoy even more keyboard shortcuts.
