The highly anticipated Apple event has finally come & we are more than excited to say the least! With the announcement of the new iPhone 13 series (14/09/2021) Apple has spared no expense to curating this series. New, optimised displays, enhanced cinematography modes within the devices & elegant minimal designs (in some beautiful colours!)
The virtual event began with an introduction to the new iPad (sixth generation) mini. Starting from $499, the device is ready for pre-order being available from 24/09/2021. The iPad mini promises a new selection of colours ranging from pink, purple, a light champagne & of course the original deep grey – all of which are stunning.
This isn’t the only new detail Apple has brought to the table with the new iPad Mini – removing the home button & placing the touch ID at the top of the device there is so much more screen space to play with. True tone, antireflective coating & 500 nits of brightness the actual hardware of the iPad Mini has had a complete transformation. Increasing the screen from 7.9″ (2019 version) to a whopping 8.3″ (2021 version) & now that the home button has been taken away, the bezels reach from edge to edge of the screen.
Updating the camera with 12 megapixels front & back, the camera now performs much better. A larger aperture, for sharper, more defined images; an improved flash, so you’re able to capture those low light photographs no matter what environment you may be in. For the front, Apple has added the Center Stage feature, which automatically keeps you in focus & frame whenever you move around within a shot.
Supporting the second generation Apple Pen, the pen can now connect to the new iPad Mini, wirelessly charging when attached magnetically to the device. It takes away the lightening connector & replaced it with a USB-C port. (BONUS!)
The mini also is supported by 5G connectivity. (BONUS!)
The iPad Mini was not the only iPad Apple announced, they also introduced the ninth generation iPad – encompassing an A13 bionic chip, True tone colour adjustment tech & 12 megapixel ultra wide camera (again with center stage for those amazing videos you’re dying to produce!).
Same as the new Mini with pre-order available & deliveries from 24/09/2021.
