Apple iPad mini (6th Gen) review: the small tablet reaches its ultimate form


The iPad mini 6 is what the pocketable tablet was always meant to be, thanks to its sleeker design, smarter features and powerful flexibility

Smaller body, bigger screen ; Bright and sharp display ; Apple Pencil 2 support ; USB-C & (optional) 5G ; Powerful A15 chip

Screen still too small for some uses ; Screen isn't high-refresh rate ; No Smart Connector or 3.5mm jack ; Weaker battery life than other iPads

The iPad mini 6 feels like the ultimate expression of what Apple always wanted it to be: a highly flexible computer in the smallest possible space. This upgrade makes it as capable for creative work as for entertainment, and despite the price hike,...

Apple iPad mini (2021, 6th generation) review: Small and perfectly formed


The iPad mini (2021) is a beautifully packaged small tablet with all the power of an iPhone 13

Fast ; Great screen ; Apple Pencil 2 support

Battery life could be better ; No 3.5mm audio jack

The iPad mini is a fine little tablet. It’s quick, neatly designed and strikes a fine balance between screen size and function. I can’t think of anything bad to say about it.

Apple iPad Mini (6th generation, 2021) review


Air we go

Much improved design ; Packed with high-end tech ; Perfectly portable ; Ecosystem embarrasses rivals

No Apple hardware keyboard ; It’s had quite a price hike ; Easy-to-muffle speakers ; Loads of bordered apps/games

Arguably a somewhat niche product – even more so given the price rise – but iPad mini with this update cements its position as the best small tablet around.

Apple iPad (2021) review: The best entry-level iPad | IT PRO


Although pointing more to the past than the future, this iPad succeeds where it matters

Still feels premium ; Powerful and good value ; Great new front camera ; Extensive app ecosystem

Unlaminated display ; Some dated design/tech ; Uses first-gen Apple Pencil ; Mediocre speaker system

iPad mini 6 (2021) review


Apple has revised the iPad mini. Or rather: reinvented, because nothing is as it once was.

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
