  • Lightning accessories still in short supply
  • No Retina display
  • Some apps and websites feel a little cramped on the smaller screen
  • Landscape keyboard is too small for easy touch-typing

  • External keyboard needed for long-form typing chores
At A Glance

Don't confuse the "mini" in "iPad mini" with "lite"--with the exception of a Retina display, this slimmed down iPad gives you the full iPad experience, including access to over 275,000 iPad-optimized apps, in a device that's about half the overall size and weight of the standard iPad. Retina-display purists will (justifiably) balk at the 1024-by-768-pixel screen, but I suspect that most people will be wowed enough by the iPad mini's other features, performance, design, and build quality to accept the screen for what it is--very good, but not Retina.

Marketing Information       We focused on the big picture, but never lost sight of the details.

The most important feature on any iPad is the screen. So for the iPad with Retina display, we wanted to build not just the best iPad display, but the best display on any mobile device. To create a display with over 3 million pixels was an engineering feat in its own right. But we went even further. We designed a camera that could take images as brilliant as the display itself. And we enclosed iPad in a unibody so thin and light, you can take all those pixels with you wherever you go. And they travel beautifully.
