Media Event Recap: iPad mini 3
Following the iPad Air 2, Apple has also announced the iPad mini with Retina Display 2. This features the same externals as the previous iPad mini, but does include Touch ID. However, unlike the iPad Air 2, the iPad mini 3 doesn’t feature a fully laminated display and is just as reflective.
Under the hood this new iPad mini has an A8X chip, the same one as the iPad Air 2.
It also features the M8 motion co-processor. This new Retina iPad mini will be available for pre-order tomorrow, or in-store pickup next week. It will come in Space Gray, Silver, and Gold. You can also pick from 16GB, 64GB, or 128GB. For those wanting the older iPad minis, Apple is still selling both of them, with a $100 price drop on the mini 2.
