It’s really exciting to see the iPad mini 6 coming out ever since its major upgrade in 2019. The new iPad mini is $100 more than its predecessor, due to the global component shortages. However, just as Apple said, they’re giving the littlest iPad its biggest update ever. Let’s check some of the most welcomed new features on iPad mini 6.
A15 Bionic chip
One of he biggest upgrade for iPad mini is the new A15 Bionic processor, which makes the new tablet 40% faster than the previous models in terms of CPU performance and a whopping 80% faster for GPU performance. The new iPad also works two times faster in machine learning, thanks to its updated Neural Engine. If you frequently deal with tasks like “graphically rich games to pro apps used by designers, pilots, doctors, and more”, iPad mini 6 is definitely your thing.
The new iPad mini has 5G compatibility (no support for mmWave 5G technology, however) as well as 4G if you buy the cellular model. The speed can reach 3.5Gbps, though that depends on the 5G infrastructure available to you.
Like other premium iPad models, iPad mini 6 replaced Lightning port with USB-C, leading to 5Gbps data transfer rate which is 10 times faster than the previous generation model. And now you can connect it to all kinds of accessories like cameras, external storage, and 4K displays.
The new iPad mini also comes with stereo speakers, a bonus for those who like playing music or watching videos without headphones.
Apple Pencil 2 compatibility
iPad mini 6 support Apple Pencil 2, the same stylus the iPad Air and Pro are compatible with. It attaches to the side of the device magnetically for pairing and wireless charging.
The last iPad mini only offered 32GB and 128GB options, while iPad mini 6 comes with 64GB and 256 storage sizes, so the storage is doubled.
