Comparison between the new iPad Mini 3 and the previous iPad Mini 2
We are still in the middle of the hangover from the keynote that Apple celebrated yesterday and in which we could see some quite interesting news. We already know that when Tim Cook’s guys prepare an event, we can expect anything.
Anyway, during the last few years we have been able to see how before the events a lot of rumors have been appearing related to the devices in question that were going to be (or were expected to be) presented. On the one hand, the curiosity of wanting to know how they will be and what characteristics the new devices will have, makes us want to know all the details related to it. But it is true that on the other hand, I would like to keep the magic of not knowing what we will find , beyond knowing the devices that will be presented.
If we think back a little, we’ll remember that we already knew what the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus looked like before Tim Cook presented them at the Flint Center in Cupertino, because even though the rumors were unconfirmed, they all pointed in the same direction and made it seem like they were on the right track. Something that, as we already know, ended up happening with the official presentation of the devices.
iPad Mini 2 vs. iPad Mini 3
On this occasion, Apple presented to the world the new iPad Air 2 and Mini 3, although it must be admitted that in the case of the smaller brother there were not too many novelties . Although it doesn’t mean it came without any, of course.
We have already told you in another comparison that the new iPad Air 2 has the new A8X processor , comes equipped with an improved screen, the M8 coprocessor and is also 1.4mm thinner and 32 grams lighter than its predecessor. However, we find that the new Mini 3 includes the same A7 processor and M7 coprocessor that already existed in the previous model. The screen that has been included in the new model also does not have the new laminate and coating of the larger model, but still maintains the dimensions and weight of the older model.
On the other hand, the camera of the new Mini 3 has the same functions that had already been seen in last year’s model but this time works with the latest version of iOS 8 . To see in more detail the features and differences between both devices, below you can see the comparison between the iPad Mini 3 and the Mini 2:
As you can see from this comparison, the differences between the two devices are not too great , so those of you who already have the Mini 2 may not want to upgrade. Of course, this is a decision you will have to make yourself. The biggest difference, in this case, is between the new iPad Air 2 and the previous Air.
Do you think the new features included in the iPad Mini 3 are sufficient to update or do you think they are insufficient? Let us know what you think, and don’t forget you can share this article with your friends by using the buttons above.
