Introduction
Apple has quietly served up the final dish on its tablet platter, the iPad Mini with Retina Display—and judging by the specifications, this Mini will be pretty rad for an iPad. Follow along as we investigate the tasty ingredients making up this compact new Retina device.
The iPad Mini Retina Display is a worthy successor of both the iPad Air and last year’s iPad Mini. The Mini is no longer the runt of the litter, having gained the snappy A7 processor, M7 coprocessor and a 2048 x 1536 pixel display, at an impressive 326 ppi. Unfortunately, the newest member also inherits the familial low repairability.
