When Apple first introduced the iPad Mini in late 2012, everyone was astonished at the right form-factor for tablet gaming. It can be carried everywhere, with its 7.9-inch screen and how compact it is. Then Apple ignored the small tablet for the next eight years, delivering all the great improvements to its larger versions. The launch of a nice iPad Mini again was not anticipated until last month.
There’s no longer a home button. No need for a lightning cord. It has a remarkable 8.3-inch liquid retina display and a powerful A15 Bionic chip. The iPad Mini has been reintroduced. Apple removed the home button from the iPhone X in 2017. In 2018, it eliminated the home button and replaced the lightning connector with USB-C in the iPad Pro. The company then released the fifth-generation iPad Mini in 2019.
Everyone was utterly devastated. For a fan of the smaller form factor, the inclusion of the home button, as well as the latest hardware still required the exclusive lightning connector, which proved that Apple didn’t care much about the Mini as people did. Even with the old components, people were gonna purchase one but stopped because of the IPS LCD.
That’s why Apple’s announcement of the sixth-generation iPad Mini, the first actual redesign of the iPad Mini since its debut in 2012, was released as a nice surprise last month. There will be no more large top and bottom borders to contain the home button and hardware. There will be no more pixelated IPS displays. The sixth generation has four stereo speakers, two on top and two on the bottom, as compared to the fifth-two generation’s speakers on the bottom alone.
The sixth-generation iPad Mini is hardly larger than an Xbox Series One controller. It’s simple to toss both into a bag for on-the-go gaming. With a membership to Apple Arcade, they always have a large library of controller-ready games available. The same thing can be accomplished with a Nintendo Switch, but the Nintendo Switch doesn’t do everything an iPad does, such as everything you can do with a PC, except a 5G wireless connection.
In most cases, people prefer the iPad Mini over the newest iPad Air model. Some people like the smaller form factor because it is more pleasant to handle for long periods. Because of the small size of the screen, can hold it closer to the eyes and still see everything, which is important for someone who spends a lot of time using it in the bed.
The only time people use the iPad Air instead of the Mini is to read comic books. But when it comes to reading word bubbles large screen size is preferable. However, if you’re using a reader with a zoom feature, can be done even with the Mini.
People spent a lot of time playing games on iPad Mini, which is more than what’s done on iPhone or iPad Air in months. So like the 2012 released iPad Mini, the new one has rapidly become a quick gaming device.
