The improved design along with flat edges and narrow borders makes it comfortable to hold in one hand even for longer periods of time. It is really thin and light, which means you can carry it wherever you go.

This new flagship device comes in four gorgeous colors- pink, starlight, purple, and space gray.
The iPad Mini 6 is powered by an A15 Bionic chip, Apple’s latest chipset, and the same one that powers the iPhone 13 Pro. Its six-core CPU which brings up to 40% faster performance and five-core graphics allows the iPad Mini to run incredibly fast. And the Neural engine, for powerful machine learning applications, also improves dramatically on the new mini, with performance up to two times that of prior versions.

The excitement doesn’t stop there because it now supports 5G. It is the first of its kind to support 5G. 5G allows iPad mini 6 to have faster internet speeds for smooth streaming and downloading.
