Full Review: Apple keeps the update lean and fails to impress

Good hi-res screen ; Solid design

Essentially the same tablet as the iPad mini 2 but a lot more expensive

is not included in the iPad mini 3. It makes sense. Apple's NFC is limited to touch-to-pay and the iPad is too big and too clunky to be used as such a device. No big loss there. There’s one case where NFC would be useful on the iPad mini 3, and that's...

Apple iPad mini 3 review

 

It's almost a case of déjà vu with the iPad mini 3, but despite its lack of any real update, it's still the 8in tablet to be reckoned with

Superb screen Good colour balance Rhythmic sound Strong app selection Premium design ‘Touch ID

Very similar spec to last year

iPad mini 3 review

 

A ‘new' tablet with a distinct lack of upgrades

Sleek design ; Good app access ; Touch ID for security

Too similar to mini 2 ; Pricey compared to last year ; Not as powerful as Air 2

Apple iPad Mini 3 review

 

Touch ID and identical specs mean the iPad Mini 3 is technically the best small Apple tablet. But is it worth the extra £80?

The best small tablet experience ; Touch ID for unlock and iTunes ; Gorgeous build, stunning Retina screen ; All-day battery life

The Mini 2 is now much better value ; No spec bumps like the iPad Air 2 ; Non expandable, no 32GB ; Slightly inferior colours next to Air 2

The Mini 3 is futureproof thanks to fingerprint scanning but makes the iPad Mini 2 too much of a bargain to ignore

Apple iPad mini 3 review: A tablet that struggles to find its place

 

When the iPad mini with Retina display launched alongside the iPad Air in 2013 the biggest choice you had to worry about was whether or not you wanted a 7.9-inch or a 9.7-inch screen. The message from Apple was clear: you get the same power either way....

Great size, good screen, TouchID integrated

Same as last year, iPad mini 2 offers far better value for money

Put simply the iPad mini 3 demands an extra £80 for TouchID and the option to choose the gold colour finish. That's a significant premium over the iPad mini 2, which is the better buy. If you like the idea of the iPad mini's sub-8-inch screen size then...

Apple iPad mini 3 adds Touch ID, but makes the old model more appealing (hands-on) - Pocket-lint

 

The iPad mini 3 saw itself updated at Apple's special event. But where the iPad Air 2 got plenty of investigation, the "new" iPad mini 3 was skirted over

iPad mini 3 review

 

If you aren't desperate for Touch ID, this tablet offers very little

Still well-designed ; Slick OS ; Touch ID is more secure

Too much like the mini 2 ; Overpriced compared to last year ; No real upgrades

This is last year's tablet with Touch ID and a new colour - as we don't know how quickly Apple Pay is going to spread, it's hard to find a reason to recommend this tablet.

iPad Mini 3 review: Gone and mostly forgotten

 

The iPad Mini 3 was a good tablet, but has been superseded by the iPad Mini 4

If you're looking for an equally well-made alternative then check out the Nokia N1, though this Android tablet is only available via grey import at present. Also check out our Best Tablets article for other top picks and a buying guide.

Apple iPad mini 3 video review - and why we could have used last year's iPad mini 2 footage

 

A less popular 'upgrade' may be the removal of the middle-ground 32 gig capacity. We'd rather Apple had dropped the 16 gig capacity and start at 32, since 16 gig really isn't enough these days, especially as the usable space out of the box is more like...

Apple iPad mini 3 review

 

Little brother in the world's most popular tablet family, a new iPad mini was announced at Apple's 16th October event, now in Mk 3 guise.Here's our review of the iPad mini 3. See also: iPad mini 3 vs iPad mini 2 comparison.

The iPad mini 3 is a great tablet in almost every way, and if that verdict sounds familiar, it's because that was our conclusion about the iPad mini 2. Apart from the Touch ID fingerprint reader and the option of a gold-coloured back, there's no...
