About The iPad Mini 6
In September 2021 Apple released the latest Ipad Mini, which comes with its biggest upgrade ever! You might be asking if this is still worth buying in April 2022, considering in 5 months there’ll be another updated version of the iPad Mini. Let’s see what the iPad Mini 6 has to offer for if you’re really planning on buying one.
The Size and Color
that not only allows you to take some really dramatic selfies, but more importantly enables a feature called Center Stage, where the camera will pan around during a video call to keep you in the center of the frame, while also expanding out when it recognizes someone else joining in.Its Design is now similar to the iPad Air, with flat sides and more options for color, including pink, purple and starlight.
Just like the iPad Air you can attach a second generation of Apple Pencil to the iPad Mini 6.
The problem is only that it takes up almost the entire right side of the device, which made Apple have to find a new place for the volume buttons, and that is the right side to the top.
On the bottom, you’ll find a USB C Port which replaces the previous model’s lightning connector, as well as a new stereo speaker system.
But, there are some things that Apple left out, like the headphone jack.
There’s also no home button, which means iPad Mini will use the same swipe navigation just like on the latest iPhones.
Touch ID is still here, moved from the home button to being integrated into the top button.
This iPad Mini 6 is also equipped with the same A15 Bionic chipset as the new line of iPhone 13 models and translates to 40% faster CPU performance,
and 80% faster graphics performance compared to the previous iPad Mini
The iPad Mini also comes with cellular 5G model as an optional upgrade, which costs an additional $150, along with a monthly payment of about $10 with your chosen carrier.
The Camera? Introducing Center Stage
The camera system on iPad Mini 6 has also been upgraded, with True-Tone flash for the first time, alongside a 12 megapixel camera lens. That’s a significant increase from the previous model’s 8 megapixel lens.
But what’s more surprising is that Apple gives another 12 megapixel camera on the front as well, except this one is for ultra-wide camera performance, that not only allows you to take some really dramatic selfies,
but more importantly enables a feature called Center Stage, where the camera will pan around during a video call to keep you in the center of the frame, while also expanding out when it recognizes someone else joining in.
In a Nutshell
The iPad Mini is already on sale and starts at $500 for the Wi-Fi only model, the iPad Mini offers a high-mobility use since it is the smallest form of iPad you’ll find in the market, with an increased size of the screen and a significant improvement in terms of software and hardware, the iPad Mini 6 is still a good buy.
