The iPad mini may be small, but it packs a lot of power. It’s even more capable than the base iPad with its A15 Bionic chip and Neural Engine, 12MP ultra-wide front camera with Center Stage, 5G connectivity and USB-C port for charging. Apple has completely redesigned the mini this time around, making it look like a smaller version of the iPad Air. It has an 8.3-inch Liquid Retina display with a 2266 x 1488 resolution that is almost edge-to-edge, flat edges and a button. on/off with fingerprint. The new mini not only looks more modern than ever, but it also handled everything we threw at it, including light gaming, online shopping, video streaming, FaceTime calling and note taking with the second-gen Apple Pencil.

FaceTime calls are even better on the small tablet too, thanks to the Center Stage feature on the front camera. It automatically pans and zooms to keep you in the middle of the frame, even while you’re moving and talking at the same time. As far as battery life goes, the iPad mini lasted around 12 hours on a single charge in our tests, two hours longer than Apple’s estimate. Admittedly, an 8-inch tablet won’t work for everyone, but those who know that the e-reader-sized device is exactly what they’re looking for should consider buying one at Amazon’s latest sale.
