Apple iPad mini (2021) Review


Excellent performance ; Long battery life ; Works with second-generation Apple Pencil

No multi-user option in iPadOS ; Pricier than previous model

Apple's fifth-generation iPad mini tablet delivers Pro-level power in a smaller size that's better for reading, taking notes, and slipping in a jacket pocket.

Apple iPad mini 6 review (2021)


The iPad mini's diminutive form factor won't be for everyone, but those in the market for an ultra-portable tablet can do no better.

Compact size enables single-handed use ; Fast performance from A15 Bionic ; Sharp and bright display ; Decent battery life and USB-C charging ; Excellent camera upgrades

Magic Keyboard isn't supported ; Apple Pencil Gen 2 sold separately ; Small display can feel cramped ; 64GB of 2021 ; Expensive

iPad mini 2021 Review – Apple’s smallest tablet is a big deal


More so than most items in Apple's range, it feels like you either love the iPad mini or you don't quite understand its appeal. Now in its sixth-generation, the smallest iPadOS tablet h…

New design looks and feels great ; 5G option adds a welcome boost in speed ; Apple Pencil 2 support is well integrated ; Competitively priced for a companion device

WiFi + Cellular option is an expensive upgrade ; Screen isn't as good as on an iPad Pro ; No mmWave 5G support

iPad mini 6 review: mini size, max performance!


The freshly-redesigned 2021 iPad mini is by far the most premium, fastest small tablet you can get right now. Here's everything that makes it special...

Perfect size and weight for reading and jotting down notes ; Unrivaled performance on a small tablet ; Punchy stereo speakers ; USB Type-C ; 2nd-gen Apple Pencil support

Apple iPad mini 6 (2021) review: Awesome and ultraportable


The iPad mini 6 (2021) is an excellent and hyper-portable iPad worthy of consideration.

Amazingly portable, light design ; Speedy A15 Bionic processor ; Sharp and bright display ; Excellent webcam ; USB-C charging ; 2nd Gen Apple Pencil support

No Magic Keyboard or headphone jack ; Pricey

At the end of the day, those who want an excellent one-handed tablet experience for reading books and watching shows and movies — with no compromises — should check out the iPad mini 2021.

Review: Apple IPad Mini 6 (2021) | A Little Speed Monster Apple iPad mini 6 (2021)


The new iPad mini is not for everyone, but for those of you who like the compact format, it is the best tablet purchase you can make.

A15 Bionic processor, USB-C, enhanced camera with "In Focus", 5G and high-quality iconic Apple design. In addition, travel-friendly and compact.

The IPS screen is not up to date, and could have been brighter anyway.

Small iPad mini is not for everyone. Many people probably think that the screen is too small, but if you, like me, prefer the compact format, there is actually no better tablet on the market right now. Yes, big brother iPad Pro, but then we are in a...

Apple iPad mini (6th Gen) review


The new iPad mini (6th Gen) might be the ultra-portable sketching, note-taking and photo-editing device of your dreams.

Bigger screen, still sharp ; Apple Pencil 2 support ; Powerful & flexible

No ProMotion screen ; No 3.5mm jack

The iPad mini (6th Gen) is a fantastic creative companion. It's powerful enough to handle pretty advanced creative work, yet fits in a coat pocket. Upgrades including a bigger screen and Apple Pencil 2 support only cement its place as a portable...

The Tiny iPad Is the Best iPad for Not Getting Any Work Done


The redesigned iPad Mini has convinced this skeptic that small tablets are still useful—and maybe even better than big ones.

Beautiful redesign; lightweight and portable; screen size perfect for reading and playing games; powerful performance; solid battery life; 5G support if you want it

iPad mini 6 tidbits: A15 chip, camera upgrades, no mmWave 5G, more


One of the best surprises of the “California Streaming” event was the brand new iPad mini 6. With a redesigned look, better cameras, up to 256GB storage, Touch ID on the Top button, and 5G support, this is the best iPad mini ever created. However,...
