iPad mini (2021) | $499.99 at Best Buy
Best Buy has now opened its pre-orders for the latest iPad mini. Ordering there will also score you six months of Apple Music and Apple News+ for free if you’re new to those services.
There’s no chance you will confuse the previous-gen iPad mini with the new one. Apple’s smallest tablet has had a complete design overhaul for 2021 with a new edge-to-edge Liquid Retina display, similar to those found on the iPad Air 4 and latest iPad Pro models.
Its screen size has been boosted to 8.3 inches, tip from 7.9 inches, with the overall footprint remaining much the same thanks to removing the ‘forehead and chin’ bezels that housed the home button and FaceTime camera before. There are four gorgeous colors to choose from — space gray, pink, purple, and starlight.
Inside there have been just as many improvements. The display now features True Tone, P3 Wide Color, full lamination, and an anti-glare coating for a premium viewing experience. It also supports the second-gen Apple Pencil.
It’s powered by the A15 Bionic chip, which allows for 40% faster performance in terms of raw CPU and an 80% boost to GPU performance. iPad mini has now moved to USB-C for connectivity, like the iPad Pro and iPad Air before it, meaning you can connect all manner of external devices.
And the most portable iPad gets the best mobile signal, too, with 5G connectivity on the cellular configurations making it the best iPad for those wanting to take a tablet on the move.
