Apple held one of the most anticipated tech events of the year and introduced new products like the iPad mini 2021.

Launched alongside the iPhone 13 series, the new iPad mini 2021 brings a long-overdue upgrade to the series. It now features a refreshed flat design that’s more compact that can fit in your palm.


The new edge-to-edge, slimmer bezels make for a larger 8.3-inch Liquid Retina Display while achieving a small build.

This screen has a 500-nits peak brightness, True Tone Technology, P3 coverage and support for Apple Pencil, which charges automatically when you attach it magnetically on the side of the device.


For a more streamlined look, the Touch ID fingerprint scanner is located on the lock/power button on the top. Under the hood, it’s powered by an A15 Bionic chip. The same processor powering the new iPhones. It has a 6-core CPU and 5-core GPU. All that while promising an entire day of battery life.

The chipset also brings modern connectivity features like WiFI 6 and 5G. The best part is, it now has a USB Type-C port that works on a slew of accessories.


Apple also brings its latest camera features to the new iPad mini 2021. There’s the new 12-megapixel ultra-wide camera with Center Stage, which can dynamically adjust the zoom to make video calls more engaging.

Around the back, there’s a 12-megapixel camera with True Tone flash. It then ships with the latest iPadOS 15.
