So my mum’s iPad mini 4 is old. Like, battery-has-bloated-out-of-its-chassis old. Today, Apple announced a new iPad Mini, featuring the Bionic A12 chip that was once featured on the iPhone XS. The timing is perfect, given that we are heading to New York for our holiday and we can buy the new one over there, which is a little bit cheaper than buying locally. She loves the iPad Mini for its size and I was worried that Apple might kill off the entire iPad Mini line since the last hardware update was more than three years ago.
Apart from that, a new iPad Air is out and also features that Bionic A12 chip. Both devices will be blazingly fast, with the same 10 hour battery life. In addition to all these improvements, Apple Pencil support is now available on both the iPad Air and iPad Mini, great news for those looking to do creative work on the device.
