The whole package. In a smaller package.
Designed to be a concentration, rather than a reduction of the original, the iPad Mini comes with everything that defines iPad, and iPad experience, in a 23 percent thinner, 53 percent lighter* profile that fits in one hand. A beautiful display, powerful A5 chip, FaceTime HD camera, iSight camera with 1080p HD video recording, ultrafast wireless, and over 275,000 apps ready to download from the App Store empower your iPad Mini to do what an iPad can do. iPad mini is an iPad in every way, shape, and slightly smaller form. (*Compared with iPad (3rd generation). Actual size and weight vary by configuration and manufacturing process.)
Less size, not means less design and quality. In making iPad mini, every detail with extraordinary precision is taken into considertaion. That’s what gives iPad mini its incredible fit and finish. With tolerances measured in microns, mono-crystalline diamond-cut edges, and sleek metallic finishes, iPad mini was designed and engineered to incredibly high standards. And you can sense that every time you pick it up. It feels beautifully made. Precisely because it is.
iPad mini is so thin and light, it requires an ultraslim connector. It’s called the Lightning connector, and it features an all-digital, eight-signal design that’s significantly more durable than the 30-pin connector. Another brilliant feature of Lightning: It’s reversible. Which means there’s no wrong way to plug in the cable. If you have an iPad accessory that depends on the 30-pin connector, you can still connect it to your iPad mini. Simply use a Lightning to 30-pin Adapter (sold separately).
Thin and light design. iPad mini has everything that makes an iPad an iPad, but it’s a fraction of the size. At just 7.2 millimeters, it’s pencil thin and unbelievably light. You can easily hold it in your palm. And stash it in your smallest bag without a second thought, so it’s always close at hand.
Beautiful 7.9-inch Display iPad mini makes one thing clear: Its 7.9-inch display more than measures up to the complete iPad experience. View web pages in Safari. See where you are and what’s around you using Maps.1 Flick through your photos and watch videos in vivid detail. And wave hello to the family on a FaceTime call.2 The iPad mini display uses the same LED backlight technology as iPad to give you plenty of pop per square inch. And it’s perfectly sized to work with hundreds of thousands of apps made for iPad.
Powerful A5 chip with Generous Battery Life iPad is known for its fast, fluid performance, and iPad mini doesn’t disappoint. It features the powerful and power-efficient A5 chip, which makes everything you do feel smooth and natural. From the little things like switching from app to app and swiping from page to page, to the big things like editing photos, watching movies, and playing games. iPad mini wouldn’t be an iPad without incredible battery life. Even with so much performance packed into such a small space, it still lasts up to 10 hours on a single charge. So you can read, watch, play, write, and create whatever you want, as long as you want.
FaceTime and iSight Cameras With FaceTime built into iPad mini, you can make a video call over Wi-Fi or cellular. The front-facing FaceTime HD camera gives everyone a great view of you, while the iSight camera on the back lets you show others what you’re seeing. You can also use the front-facing camera for taking self-portraits or recording 720p HD video. The 5-megapixel iSight camera features a backside illumination sensor that captures great-looking pictures whether by sunlight or candlelight. Autofocus, tap to focus, and tap to set exposure functions mean every photo you take instantly becomes frameworthy. Built-in face detection automatically balances focus and exposure across up to 10 faces. With iSight camera, you can also capture all precious, beautiful, spectacular moments. In 1080p HD, no less. The spacious iPad mini display gives you a great view of whatever you’re filming. And with automatic video stabilization, your recording is free of bumps and shakes. So your videos are instantly ready to share.
Ultrafast Wireless iPad mini features advanced Wi-Fi that's up to twice as fast as any previous-generation iPad. With dual-band (2.4GHz and 5GHz) 802.11n Wi-Fi and support for channel bonding, download speeds can reach up to 150 Mbps, which means the things you do every day may start to feel a whole lot faster. If you want to connect to the Internet even when you don’t have access to Wi-Fi, choose iPad mini with Wi-Fi + Cellular. It can make ultrafast cellular network connections around the world — including LTE and other advanced wireless networks such as HSPA, HSPA+, and DC-HSDPA. So you can download content, stream video, and browse the web at amazing speeds — without a contract or long-term commitment.
Siri Siri is the intelligent assistant that helps you get things done, just by asking. Talk to Siri as you would to a person: Ask “Do I need an umbrella?” or “Did the Giants win last night?” or “What time is the barbecue on Sunday?” Siri not only understands what you say, it knows what you mean. It figures out the right apps to use to find the right answer. Then, just like a personal assistant, Siri provides you with the information you need.
