The iPad Mini 3: Everything You Need To Know


Here’s the new iPad Mini 3.

It’s almost exactly the same as the old one.

Same design. Same thinness. Same processor. Same camera.

The one difference: it now has Touch ID.

Oh, you can also get it in gold.

Battery is the same (10 hours).

They are still doing that weird thing with capacity tiers. 16/64/128GB. Don’t buy a 16GB, you dummy.

You can pre-order tomorrow, and it goes on sale Friday October 25th.

You should probably buy last year’s model (now called the iPad Mini 2), because it’s basically the same, only way cheaper.

The iPad Mini OG is still on sale too, but you shouldn’t buy that, because the internals are the same as an iPad 2, and that is crazy old.
