Description

The iPad mini 3 is Apple's third-generation mini tablet, although technically, it is almost identical to its predecessor. The device offers a 7.9-inch Retina Display with a resolution of 2048 by 1536 pixels. Processing power is provided by an Apple-designed A7 system-on-chip, and up to 128GB of storage are available for storing files and media. In charge is the latest version of iOS, Apple's mobile operating system. All this is housed in a lightweight, 7.5-millimeter thin body made of premium aluminium. Unlike its predecessor, the iPad mini 3 has a Touch ID fingerprint scanner built into its home button.
