Apple iPad Mini (2021) review: Little powerhouse


The iPad Mini is big enough for movies and games, but small enough to read with one hand. It's my favorite iPad yet.

Big enough to perform most tasks Compact enough to travel easily Powerful performance Loud speakers USB-C

Screen is not bright enough Too small for content creation No headphone jack

“The iPad Mini is officially my favorite iPad ever, and it will do most of the things you want a tablet to do really well.”

Apple iPad mini 6th gen (2021) review


Rejoice iPad mini fans, the smallest Apple tablet has just gotten its biggest upgrade to date! There is so much new stuff - a larger screen in a smaller...

Larger screen and thinner bezels, modern design.

Display does not support HDR, or high refresh rate.

That is not bad per se - Apple offers great iCloud sync and subscription services, there are many games that run better on iPads, you get at least 5 years of software updates, plus - there is a reason the iPads are the best-selling tablets in the world...

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

Unimpressive display, wavy scrolling in portrait mode

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...

iPad mini 6 extended-use review – There’s no substitute for portability [Video]


I've been using Apple's dramatically redesigned iPad mini for about two months now, and my biggest takeaway is that it's a great device for reading and note taking. But as you'll see in my iPad mini 6 extended-use review, it's not without compromise....
