iPad mini 2021 has bigger screen than predecessor

The iPad mini will be less ‘mini’ in terms of screen size in 2021. That is namely 8.3 inches while its direct predecessor still had a screen of 7.9 inches. However, the screen edges have become a lot narrower and the resolution has also been increased a bit. You can now enjoy a screen resolution of 2266 by 1488 pixels, so that everything looks sharp. It is a standard LCD screen and not yet the renewed mini LED display as in the iPad Pro.

Of course, the True Tone functionality is also present, with which the color temperature is adjusted to the ambient light. The maximum brightness has been improved somewhat, so that the screen is still easy to read in direct (sun) light.

Touch ID still present and more interesting gadgets

You can still ensure that all your data remains safe with the iPad mini 2021 thanks to your fingerprint. The Touch ID sensor is incorporated in the on/off button on the top of the tablet. Unlocking via facial recognition is therefore not possible.

Apple has equipped the small iPad with stereo speakers and a USB-C connection. Thanks to the speakers and the larger screen, you can optimally enjoy websites, music and movies. Charging is done via the new connection and is done with a maximum of 20 Watts. As a result, the tablet is charged relatively quickly and you can also easily connect all kinds of accessories.

Further specifications of iPad mini 2021

The smallest iPad of 2021 is equipped with the most powerful processor from the manufacturer to date. The Apple A15 Bionic was presented at the same time at the event and can also be found in the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max. That chip not only offers much more raw processing power, but is also a lot stronger in terms of graphics. You can use the iPad mini 2021 for the heaviest graphic tasks, but playing games is no problem at all.

Apple has also upgraded the cameras. You can do FaceTime in a maximum resolution of 12 megapixels with the front camera. It has a viewing angle of up to 122 degrees and the Center Stage function of the iPad Pro can also be used. On the back you will find two 12-megapixel sensors. This allows you to shoot not only normal photos, but also snapshots at a wider angle.
