Apple announces iPad mini and updated fourth-generation iPad

The much-rumoured iPad mini has been revealed by Apple.


It’s available in WiFi-only and WiFi + mobile versions, has a 7.9-inch display, a front-facing camera, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera and a display that boasts the same resolution as the first iPad models. Pricing starts from £269 for the 16GB WiFi-only model, which goes on sale from 2nd November. Mobile-enabled versions will follow later in November.

An updated ‘full-size’ iPad has also been announced. It has the 9.7-inch display of its predecessor but runs a new Apple-designed A6X chip that promises up to twice the CPU performance and up to twice the graphics performance of the A5X chip. It’s also compatible with more 4G LTE mobile networks than the previous version.

Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing, said “iPad mini is every inch an iPad. With its gorgeous 7.9-inch display, iPad mini features the same number of pixels as the original iPad and iPad 2, so you can run more than 275,000 apps designed specifically for iPad. iPad mini is as thin as a pencil and as light as a pad of paper, yet packs a fast A5 chip, FaceTime HD and 5 megapixel iSight cameras and ultrafast wireless - all while delivering up to 10 hours of battery life.”
