User Reviews 1 User Reviews I think The Verge really enjoyed using the new iPad mini. They found it to be a refreshing change from increasingly large phones and tablets. I appreciated the iPad mini's small but powerful design. I liked reading on the mini's 7.9-inch screen more than on my bigger iPads. I also felt the iPad mini was less disruptive to use in meetings than a phone or laptop.

User Reviews 2 I felt conflicted about using the new iPad mini. On one hand, it looked nearly identical to the 2012 original. The large bezels felt very dated compared to modern smartphones.

However, the upgraded display and Apple Pencil support made for a good viewing and writing experience. I appreciated the boost in performance from the A12 chip as well. The iPad mini handled multitasking and games with no issues. Battery life met Apple's 10 hour claim too.

User Reviews 3 I enjoyed using the compact tablet for reading, videos, and more. The small size allows comfortable one-handed use.
While cheaper tablets like the Amazon Kindle Fire offer better value, they lack the extensive app support of iPads. I think the iPad mini still provides the best premium small tablet experience.

  • Design 7 / 10

After a long four year wait, Apple has finally released an updated version of its beloved small tablet, the iPad mini. On the inside it packs a serious punch thanks to modern components like Apple's powerful A12 Bionic processor.

Design with a Modern Twist

Retaining its iconic 7.9-inch form factor, the new iPad mini offers lightning quick speeds and long battery life squeezed into a highly portable design.

The iPad Mini's internal upgrades but disappointment in the unchanged external design. The large bezels were considered dated, but the compact size provided a comfortable one-handed usage experience.

According to Apple, you can expect the same roughly 10 hours of battery life for surfing the web or watching videos as you’ll find on larger and pricier iPads.

Performance in Practical Use

The iPad mini sports a Retina display which stays fairly bright at 500 nits and supports features like True Tone for comfortable viewing in varied lighting.

The screen also works smoothly with the Apple Pencil for sketching or handwritten notes, although the mini only supports the 1st generation stylus rather than the newer magnetic Pencil.

A12 Chip and Notable Features

Despite familiar thick bezels above and below the display, the iPad mini 2019 brings plenty of updates like FaceTime HD cameras, stereo speakers, Apple Pencil support, and compatibility with Bluetooth 5.0 accessories.

It runs the full range of iPadOS apps and can even handle immersive AR experiences thanks to onboard machine learning capabilities provided by the A12 Bionic chip.

The significant internal upgrades of the iPad Mini, including the fast A12 processor and Apple Pencil support. However, disappointment was expressed regarding the external design resembling the 2012 original, deemed dated compared to contemporary devices.

The Apple iPad Mini (2019) garnered positive reviews for its powerful A12 processor, compact size, Apple Pencil support, and high performance.

Despite some criticism for the lack of external design innovation, the iPad Mini's affordability and premium features make it a compelling option for users in search of a top-notch small tablet.
