Retina iPad mini review: High density
Launched in late 2012, the iPad mini was as sluggish as the iPad 2. It did not have the stunning Retina display feature that Apple had inserted to the iPad previously in the year. But not a bit of that mattered as, for a few people, tininess rules.
The previous iPad mini might not have been progressive, but it was partly the size of the full-scale iPad and half the mass, and those two verities matter above a high-tech processor or a beautiful screen.
The latest iPad mini along with Retina display is here, and it eradicates the original mini’s 2 major failings by espousing Apple’s A7 CPU and gaining a stunning high-resolution display screen. The lone catch is that the latest iPad mini is not partially the size of the iPad. With the opening of the iPad Air and minor increase to the width and mass of the mini, the second is now approximately two-thirds of the dimension and mass of its larger equivalent. The lines that separate huge and small iPads have hazed.
But followers of the tiny iPad should still celebrate. The iPad mini along with Retina display addresses every flaw of the preceding model. It is the iPad mini Apple almost certainly wished it could have manufactured in 2012, but merely it could not.
