A new iPad was announced during the Apple September event. The affordable tablet has received several improvements and is therefore ready for the future. The iPad mini has also been updated.
iPad mini 2021 official: these are the improvements
A new, affordable iPad was announced during the iPhone 13 event. The new iPad 2021 has the A13 Bionic processor, which is 20 percent faster than the chip that was in the previous iPad. According to Apple, the iPad is in any case much faster than most Chromebooks that you can buy right now.
In addition, the affordable iPad has a new 12 megapixel main camera, which should take much better photos. The screen has also received True Tone support, so that the display adapts to the lighting conditions. We know this from the iPhones and many other Apple products.
The design has hardly changed. This means you still have hefty screen edges and a Touch ID fingerprint scanner. So no Face ID facial recognition, but simply the familiar home button. The iPad 2021 also uses a Lightning port and no USB-c connection.
Also new: iPad mini 2021
A much major upgrade is available for the iPad mini. Not only does the compact tablet have a completely new design, but it is also considerably faster. The design of the iPad mini 2021 resembles that of the most recent iPad Air, with thin bezels and a Touch ID fingerprint scanner in the home button.
The display is 8.3 inches and has rounded screen edges. The edges of the device are ‘upright’, just like the iPhone 12 phones. It is important to know that the iPad mini 2021 does not have a mini LED display, unlike the iPad Pro from earlier this year. It is simply a ‘standard’ LCD screen, which produces beautiful colors and looks nice and sharp.
Another important improvement: the iPad mini 2021 has a USB-C connection, so you can connect accessories to the device, for example. For example, consider a camera. 5G support is also present and the 12 megapixel camera on the back has been improved.
It is also very nice that the iPad mini 2021 charges faster thanks to the 20 Watt charger. Previous iPad minis had a slower adapter, so you had to wait a long time until the tablet was full again. The second-generation Apple Pencil can also be used with the new mini iPad.
