Apple iPad mini 3: all the official images

Apple iPad mini 3: all the official images
Last year, the iPad Air's major redesign followed the cues of the iPad mini 2, which comes to show how spot on has the small tablet line of Apple been in terms of chassis construction in the first place. The new iPad mini 3 retains the shape and form of its predecessor, as it's still the most elegant and premium small tablet on the market. This achievement is even more respectable given that the mini 3 is crafted out of metal, unlike most slates in the sub-10" category, which for the vast majority are plasticky. 

The mini 3 has also been given a new, golden color option, in line with the times, which looks pretty svelte. Apple also added the inevitable Touch ID scanner for the first time in a mini slate, which means you can now easily unlock the display, and do iTunes and other purchases simply by pressing your finger against the home key.

Honestly, doesn't blow me away, and doesn't disappoint. Higher res screen, 2 gigs of RAM, 64 gigs for the price of 32, TouchID, a gold option (see post 1), upgraded camera, and the SIM card hookup is pretty good. Plus 8.1 will be a big update.

My bad, I was posting about the Air 2. You're right, the mini 3 cam is the same. +1

Apple tabs(yes i call them tablets) feel great in hand but are nothing new, its time to innovate apple. At least this should've had an A8 processor if not A8x.
