Apple iPad mini (2019) review: a tiny creative powerhouse

 

The new iPad mini is less versatile for work than the iPad Air, but it's incredible for creative endeavours and gaming

Very strong processor and graphics ; Vibrant and sharp True Tone screen ; Apple Pencil support ; Small and light, of course

Screen size limited for working ; Design is a bit outdated now ; No Smart Connector for keyboards

Apple iPad Mini (2019) review

 

The iPad Mini gets better sound and picture quality

Bright, punchy and vibrant ; Lots of dark detail ; Crisp sound

Blacks could be deeper ; Speaker placement

The looks haven't changed, but under-the-skin improvements make the latest iPad Mini even better than before

Apple iPad mini (2019) review

 

It turns out the iPad's mini-me is good for more than just a bit of gaming and Netflix

Light and portable ; Powerful and fast ; Display is excellent ; Surprisingly versatile

Design feels dated ; Cameras aren’t amazing… ; … and neither are the speakers ; Uses the older Apple Pencil

Dated design aside, the best small tablet money can buy, with an excellent mix of portability, power and apps.

Apple iPad mini review (2019): Small but mighty

 

Supreme power ; Best-in-class for the size ; TrueTone screen welcome ; Apple Pencil support

Design hasn't moved on ; Bezels are still huge ; Not a cheap option - it's pricier than the 9.7in iPad

There’s simply no better tablet at this size, with ultimate portability and unparalleled power for its price point.

iPad mini (2019) review

 

If you're looking for the iPad mini 5, this is it. It's called the iPad mini (2019), and it's Apple's new best small tablet.

Perfect size to tote around Works with the Apple Pencil Surprisingly powerful specs

Unchanged, bezel-heavy design Uses the older Apple Pencil Costs more than the iPad 9.7

The iPad mini 2019 is Apple’s most totable iPad, and it’s deceptively powerful for its small size. It has a bright 7.9-inch display that works with the Apple Pencil and a chipset that smokes the small tablet competition. Its price is equally deceptive,...

Apple iPad mini 5 (2019) review: A strange mix of the old and new

 

The new Apple iPad mini boosts performance and adds Apple Pencil support – if you liked the old mini, you'll love this one even more

Small and light ; Powerful ; Apple Pencil support

Big, fat bezels ; More expensive than the 9.7in iPad

For all that, though, it’s hard to criticise the iPad mini (2019) too much when it’s so superior to its rivals at this size. Despite its slightly old-fashioned appearance, it’s still a great tablet. It’s fast, has a wonderful display and is neat and...

Apple iPad Mini (2019) tablet review

The fourth-generation iPad Mini is the first new small iPad in more than three years. Despite the length of time between updates, the Mini is actually very similar in design to the old model. That's great news for anybody who has an older model that's...

Apple iPad mini 5 (2019) review: If it ain’t broke...

 

Almost four years on, the new iPad mini is still every bit as good as always

Outstanding speed; Portable and convenient size; Beautiful display; Apple Pencil support

Few added features over the mini 4; reduced battery life

The 5th-generation iPad mini might not massively shake things up compared to its predecessor, but massive performance improvements combined with the mini's near-perfect form factor make Apple's diminutive tablet an absolute joy to use.

Apple iPad mini review (2019): Still the best small tablet

 

It took Apple three years to update the iPad mini, and the improvements here mean the wait was mostly worth it. This time, Apple gave its small tablet the same performance as its flagship iPhone XS, an improved screen, and support for its Apple Pencil....

Plenty of power ; Solid battery life ; Improved display ; Finally has Apple Pencil support

This design was dated even the last time around ; Unexciting cameras ; Comes with a slow 12W charger

Apple iPad mini (2019)

 

Apple's iPad mini is the only small, premium tablet you should consider buying right now.

Powerful processor. Solid screen. Broad LTE options. Apple Pencil support. Light and easy to carry.

Compatible Apple Pencil isn't the better model. Aging design.

This year's iPad mini and the new iPad Air ($499) are basically bigger and smaller versions of each other. Here's how it steps up: The existing $329 iPad (just called iPad) is for all of your basic tablet needs. The $399 iPad mini is for people who...
