Upgrading from an iPad mini 4 to a 5th generation iPad mini may not sound like a big improvement because you are only going up one generation. But the iPad mini 4 was released in 2015 and the 5th generation iPad mini arrived in 2019. This gap in time means you get several noteworthy improvements. For example, the iPad mini (5th generation) features a 7.9” display with a 500 nits max brightness, P3 wide color, and True Tone. The 5th generation iPad mini also supports the first-generation Apple Pencil. Another notable improvement is the processor, which goes from an Apple A8 chip in the mini 4 to an Apple A12 Bionic chip with Neural Engine in the 5th gen iPad mini. Other features of the 5th generation iPad mini include an 8MP wide camera, a 7MP FaceTime HD camera, up to 256GB of storage, a Lightning connector for charging, and a home button with Touch ID for security.
