There have been rumors about the iPad Mini 4 that it has been designed to be a bit less powerful compared to the iPad Air 2. Having a 7.9-inch screen as its trademark size, the iPad Mini seem to be less significant these days than it once was. This has resulted from the proliferation of huge phones and more capable tablets and laptops. Thus, people tend to be a little more mindful of the products they may find less useful. Well, there are plenty of other features that you still have to know about this device. Some of the most notable features are presented here.
More Powerful iPad Mini
In comparison to the previous versions of the Mini, this model has been considered the most powerful and packed with better features. Basically, it has better screen and camera, faster processor, and the crazed touch ID fingerprint sensor. Accordingly, it also has more than 1.3 times faster and 1.6 times quicker than the previous iPad Mini models. Moreover, it can also handle apps that require split screens.
Slower Compared with the iPad Air 2
Based from the features of the larger model of the iPad Air 2, the iPad Mini 4 have nearly similar specifications than its Air 2 counterpart. Nevertheless, the graphics processor can be a third slower which can be more observable when playing games and switching between apps.
The iPad Mini 2 has been considered to have a better battery life than the iPad Mini 4. Although Apple claims that it can last up to 10 hours across all the iPads, it can only last up to 9 hours and 34 minutes. On the other hand, the iPad Mini 2 has been measured to last up to 11 hours and 20 minutes, which can be pretty disappointing for those who want to acquire the newer models.
