Apple iPad Mini 4 Review
The iPad mini 4 was unveiled in September 2015, with significant design changes, updated specs and new features that make it one of the best 8in tablets around. The iPad mini 4 comes with iOS 9, which contains several enhancements over the version used by the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. The most impressive is a huge upgrade to multitasking. Where previously apps could only be on-screen one at a time, a swipe from the right edge reveals a list of apps which can be run alongside whatever you’re doing. You can open Twitter on the right to read your stream or sent a quick tweet, while Safari remains open on the left.

The mini 4, like the iPad Air 2, has had a little bit of thickness shaved off compared to its predecessor to make it even more portable, and the weight is reduced accordingly. The iPad mini 4 is down to 299g, from 331g, which makes it even easier to slip into the inside pocket of a jacket or hide in a bag.
The iPad mini 4, as mentioned, is available in 16GB, 64GB and 128GB models, and each of those offers the option of WiFi-only or WiFi + Cellular if you want mobile connectivity.
Apple has finally outfitted the iPad mini 4 with a better camera. The iPad mini 4’s iSight camera matches the 8 megapixel specs of the iSight camera in the iPad Air 2.
Like a number of Apple’s tablets at the moment, it’s hard to point to real innovation under the hood, but the mini 4 achieves its brilliance through just being well packaged. The 298.8g weight means you feel like you’re just holding an oversized iPhone, but the larger 4:3 ratio of the screen means you can see more content in once place.
It’s hard to fault the performance of the iPad mini 4, as it works just as you’d expect it to under the finger. The extra RAM boost is welcome, as it means firing all those extra pixels is a little easier, but overall there’s nothing to really get worried about. The battery life is identical to that of the iPad Air 2 which is a surprise given its using an older CPU at its heart. That’s probably the biggest gripe of the mini 4, as it’s using a chipset that’s already a year old.
