New iPad mini adverts pit big against small

New iPad mini adverts pit big against small

Apple has quietly rolled out a pair of new iPad mini adverts, focusing on the 7.9-inch tablet's interplay with the full-sized iPad, and how both deliver the touch experience merely at different scales. The two new commercials look at Photos and iBooks respectively, tying the two versions together with themed photos - each iPad showing one half of the frame - and topically linked books.
