Apple presents the iPad mini 2021: the smallest of the family now has a Pro body

Apple has just presented an iPad mini totally renewed in design, along with the new iPhone 13 Pro, the new iPhone 13 and the Apple Watch Series 7. The new small tablet from Apple has received the design that we have seen in the iPad Pro since 2018 and in the iPad Air since last year.

It was a more necessary renovation to say goodbye to the old frames, kept practically from the original design. In that sense, in addition to edges that have been reduced, the Liquid Retina display (LCD) screen has grown from 7.9 to 8.3 inches. This means that this new member of the family receives new covers and new accessories.

A15 Bionic to become the second fastest iPad of the moment

The iPad mini 2021 improves on the iPad Air 2020 because instead of an A14, Apple has equipped it with an A15 Bionic, which Apple says is 80% faster than the previous generation that, remember, had an A12 Bionic.

In addition, the iPad mini now has a USB-C port that replaces the traditional Lightning, and that Apple says that enables 10x faster file transfers. As a detail, Apple incorporates a 20-watt charger in the box, something it no longer does in the iPhone. At the connectivity level, the iPad mini 2021 comes with Wi-Fi 6, optional 5G and allows the Apple Pencil (second generation) to be magnetically charged from one of the sides, like the higher models.

Like the iPad Air with which you share almost everything, iPad mini now has Touch ID built into its power button, not counting on Face ID like the Pro and the iPhone. Another point in common with the Air is also the new stereo speakers.
