So you’ve had your time with the Holy Grail of tablets and you’ve come back for some more, yes? You’ve seen and felt and experienced the iPad mini 2 – previously called the iPad mini with Retina Display – and you want to see what this iPad mini 3 is all about. Turns out there’s not a whole lot different with this newest iPad mini, it’s just a generational leap that’ll change the way you secure your mobile experience. And you can get it in gold, too.
If you’ll refer back to our iPad Air 2 vs iPad mini 3 guide you’ll find that the iPad mini 3 has several key points in which it’s been upgraded from its previous generation. Those points are, in no particular order:
• A new gold option
• A 64GB option for internal storage space
• Touch ID
This device still works with a Lightning connector, nano-SIM tray for 4G LTE networks, and the same amount of battery life as previous generations. This newest generation still has a three-axis gyroscope, an accelerometer, and an ambient light sensor.
The iPad mini 3 retains the exact same dimensions as the previous iPad mini as well as the same weight. Apparently Touch ID is completely weightless! It’s magic!
We’ll have a full review of this device ready for you once we’ve had enough time with it to call it good. Stick around SlashGear’s Apple hub for more!
