Apple hasn’t always offered timely upgrades for the iPad mini. While the 4th gen and 6th gen models are only two generations apart, they were released six years apart. The 4th gen iPad mini was released in 2015, and the 6th gen model arrived in 2021. Essentially, this means there are notable differences in almost all aspects of the tablet – beginning with the exterior design. The 6th gen iPad mini features a squared-off design, similar to the iPad Pro lineup. Apple also moved the Touch ID sensor to the side power button and increased the display size. The 6th gen iPad mini has an 8.3” display with True Tone. You will also find 5G connectivity, support for the 2nd gen Apple Pencil, up to 256GB of internal storage, a 12MP wide camera on the back, a 12MP ultra-wide camera with Center Stage on the front, and Apple’s A15 Bionic chip with Neural Engine.
