However, even if this appearance might be good looking, breaking it means that repairing the display will make you spend a serious amount of money.

The battery package for the iPad Mini 4 gets too an important renovation and is a single-cell based device compared to a dual-cell found on other gadgets of the company, but with surprisingly lower performances. The potential of this battery set is also smaller at a little over 5,100mAh in comparison to the iPad mini 3 with almost 6,500mAh power under its extremely thin and light carcass. Remarkably, Apple has stated this battery configuration integrated into iPad Mini 4 is identical to that of older devices.
The group of experts who tested the tablet also said that its FaceTime digicam is slim and its antennas have been moved in a more comfortable place for the user. This iPad is more of hybrid between the Mini and the Air with the antennas located on its top, as they are on the Air, while the lower half looks like a conventional Mini.
