An excellent small tablet
Prices will drop more now
Might be worth paying a bit more for the new version
One of the major changes with the iPad mini 4 over the older version is its design. It may look the same, but it’s been slimmed down from 7.5mm to a wafer thin 6.1mm. It’s also now more powerful, has a stunning screen and the battery is still a 10-hour beast. The A8 processor is a good step up from the A7 inside the mini 3 so if you’re going to play 3D games or throw around some of the more hefty iPad apps from the App Store, this is certainly a solid option.
The price will start to drop more now that the new 2019 iPad Mini has landed. For a while though, you might find prices aren’t a million miles apart, meaning you might want to spend a bit more on the newest version for the extra speed and higher resolution screen.
