The 16GB iPad mini 3 from Apple has a smaller form factor than its big brother, the iPad Air 2. The iPad mini is just 7.5mm thin and weighs less than 1 pound. Its smaller form factor makes it easier to hold in one hand. This iPad mini comes in a silver finish.
The tablet’s 7.9″ Retina Display features a native resolution of 2048 x 1536, showing up to 3.1 million pixels at 326 ppi. The Retina Display’s capacitive touchscreen lets you utilize all the multi-touch gestures of iOS.
The mini 3 features the dual-core, 64-bit A7 chip, allowing for more robust and powerful apps. Also, the A7 chip supports OpenGL ES version 3.0 so the iPad mini can enable detailed graphics and visual effects once only possible on desktop computers and game consoles.
Accompanied by the A7 chip is the M7 coprocessor, which measures the motion of the iPad mini via the accelerometer, gyroscope and compass, lightening the load of the A7 chip. This frees up the A7 chip to process multiple tasks and maintaining fast performance. The iPad mini may have the Retina Display, but it still manages to maintain its 10-hour battery life. That’s because the A7 chip isn’t just more powerful, it’s also more efficient.
