Where to buy Apple iPad mini 4?
- John V., 2017-02-08
Apple’s latest iPad mini, the 4th generation model to be exact, helps to diversify the company’s portfolio, which recently got expanded with the introduction of the iPad Pro, but for those looking to keep it slim, compact, and simple, the iPad mini 4 is always worth the look. However, are there enough improvements and upgrades to warrant a refresh, or an incentive to upgrade?

If this was the iPad mini launched alongside the Air 2, it would have been an easy five stars. However, even with a year in between, it still performs very well for a smaller slate.

THE GOOD Compact size, vivid display, works with split-screen apps in iOS 9. Basically, a shrunken-down iPad Air 2. Perfect hand feel for vacations.
THE BAD Price is high for an 8-inch tablet. Slower graphics mean some apps and games don't feel as zippy. Small screen makes for cramped typing and multitasking.
THE BOTTOM LINE Unless you're absolutely in love with the iPad Mini 4's smaller size, opt for the faster, larger, identically priced, and still pretty portable iPad Air 2.
