This Friday is an important day for Apple. In addition to the arrival of the iPhone 13 family, it is also possible to start using the iPad mini from that day onwards. At least, on paper. In practice, it seems to be a completely different story.
Because if you don’t pre-order your iPad mini right away, there’s a good chance you’ll have to wait a long time to get it. If we go to Apple Store We’ll see that you won’t receive one at home right now.
iPad mini is taking too long
If I were to order the iPad mini 64GB and Wi-Fi today, I would wait 4-6 weeks to get it. In the worst case scenario, it could mean that I can start using the new device on November 2nd. At least, that’s the Spacegrey variant. If you don’t want to wait long for the device and want to get started quickly, you can also choose a different color. The other three colors can be delivered on the day of release. And if you don’t like the color, you can use a can to hide the color.
The iPad mini was unveiled last week. The new mini It features a new design (and that was soon). The tablet has the same design as the iPad Air (2020) and also fits better with current iPhone models. This means that the angles are squares. In addition, it is much more powerful than its predecessor. In terms of the CPU, for example, we see a 40% increase and 80% better GPU performance than the 2019 model. This makes the tablet ideal for playing games or heavy tasks that require a lot of computing power. So a very interesting development.
The iPad mini (2021) camera system is also noticeably better. On the back of the tablet there is an improved 12MP camera with Focus Pixel function. In addition, True Tone Flash, Smart HDR, and 4K Video are also available.
On the front of the iPad mini is a 12MP selfie camera and an ultra-wide lens. Perfect, because this also supports the new Center Stage functionality for FaceTime on the iPad mini.
