As most #iPadmini fans would have noticed, the upgraded 4th gen model uses the same A8 chipset that we saw on the #iPhones from last year. A new revelation has now confirmed that while the tablet uses the same chipset, it’s actually a little faster here.
This means that users can expect better performance from the device especially in terms of graphics and even get decent benchmark scores, depending on the amount of power that the display is taking. It is also worth noting that the iPad mini 4 now has 2GB of RAM, which is twice as much as the previous gen model, so there are upgrades all around.
So if you’ve held back on an upgrade of your iPad mini 2, now is probably the right time to get one given the kind of upgrades we’re seeing here. With the iPad mini 3, Apple had only introduced a Touch ID sensor underneath and kept the hardware relatively unchanged compared to the predecessor. This led us to believe that Apple is probably not taking this lineup seriously, but it’s good to see that’s not the case.
The pricing of the iPad mini 4 starts at $399 for the 16GB WiFi model and $529 for the LTE variant, so they’re certainly not going light on your wallets.
