Apple’s iPad is losing ground to competing Android tablet and phablet manufacturers. Sales have gone down over the previous years. Apple is looking to, currently, turn their game around with the launch of their new and updated iPad lineup.
The iPad Mini 3 was launched some days back accompanied by an in-built Touch ID fingerprint sensor. Looking at the device, you’d be surprised that there are no major differences between this year’s iPad mini and the one released last year. Leaving the Touch ID fingerprint sensor, both are identical
The iPad Mini 3 uses the A7 chipset and M7 co-processor. The iPad Mini 3 has a 7.9” Retina Display with 2048 × 1536 resolution. The iPad Mini 3 runs on Apple iOS 8.1. The iPad Mini 3 has a 5 MP iSight camera that has 1080p video recording capability and a FaceTime HD camera.
The iPad Mini 3’s price starts from $399 for the one with 16 GB internal storage and Wi-Fi only. The highest price for the iPad Mini 3 is $729 for 128 GB internal storage and LTE. The iPad Mini 2 received a price cut to $299 for the basic version. A non-Retina iPad Mini can now be bought for $249. We would recommend that you go for other better options in the market for that price.
