The iPad Mini is not Apple's best tablet (it's an 11-inch iPad Pro). This is not a good enough tablet (it's iPad Air). It's awkward. Slightly too small, but too big, and requires a pretty radical change to the tablet's performance if you used to use any other iPad. But boy, after a week of using the recently updated Mini, I still find it awfully attractive. The iPad Mini is the real queen of content consumption
What is this?
Upgrade to Apple's smallest tablet.
The mini-tablet is great for books and even movies.
She feels a little tight to use a pencil.
What do I mean? Maybe it does not make sense at first. In the end, the iPhone XS Plus has a much more beautiful 6.5-inch OLED display, the iPad Pro has a large and great display with a higher upgrade frequency. They shaved and shaved these covers until they were the edge of the razor, and the covers of the Mini looked old-fashioned and too short.
But have you ever tried to read a medium sized iPhone or iPad book? He feels too small or too big. Mini with its 7.9-inch display with a resolution of 2048 by 1536, similar to the Baby Bear bed. It is right. Bezel is large enough, I can hold the iPad with one hand, and not by chance, to go to the next page, like me with a big iPad. I found myself reaching it all week despite the fact that it continues well under the twelve hours of reading the marathon while my Kindle Oasis lasts for days. This is partly due to the fact that I could go to the wiki Game of Thrones to freshen myself about the characters I'm reading, not about getting to my phone, as I do with my oasis.
And so, the iPad Mini is great for watching videos too. She does not roll over when a person standing in front of me on a plane scrolls her back as a big iPad, and a range of colors in something like a scene with a quantum sphere in Ant-Man and Wasp looks bright enough and not tired There is no need for a wider color palette of P3, but I'm sure it will be useful if I want to edit my dog photos on the Mini for Instagram.
in support of Apple Pencil, which was frankly too long. (Seriously, how difficult is it to implement pencil support?) Although pencil support is also felt … unnecessary? Using a pencil on the small Mini screen, everything feels tight, a smaller pencil, more suitable for smaller minis, can make things a little less attached.
But that's where I'm a little trivial. The screen is really too small to create content and take advantage of the A12 processor based on this thing, but it also feels too big to view the material. If I just watch the movie and do not watch the movie, doing something like a game Stardew Valley then there are huge black bars that make the movie a bit less intimate.
With an initial price of $ 400, it is also very attractive, especially compared to on a simple iPad last year, which is more difficult, has a lower resolution display and a more processor. If I have to spend less than $ 400 on the iPad, then it's better than that big, slow.
But the real problem that ponders me, whether the iPad Mini even has its dirty hands in 2019, is that it, just like any other non-Pro iPad, just feels old.
Apple has done a great job of adding gestures of support and Person ID to Pro last year, and I adore these features. On Pro, I slip up and go home, while on the Mini, I'm fumble for the Home button. On Pro, I look at the camera to auto-load the password for LastPass, on the Mini, I hope that the finger I click on the Touch ID button is already programmed.
Super small troubles, but also Apple is skillfully solved and chosen for the exception! This leaves the iPad Mini feeling less like the cutting edge of the tiny tablet this (seriously beautiful display) and more like a lazy upgrade Apple pushed just so would be some cheaper devices for people to buy to use with all of these new services t  This is much thinner than the original Mini. “/>
