The new iPad mini is also equipped with Apple Pencil support and an A12 Bionic chip delivering three times the performance and nine times faster graphics. Its advanced Retina display with True Tone technology and wide color support is 25 percent brighter and has the highest pixel density of any iPad.

“iPad continues to provide magical new experiences for a growing range of uses where it is the absolute best device, from playing games in augmented reality to note-taking and drawing with Apple Pencil, from streaming HD movies and editing 4K films to learning to develop apps with Swift Playgrounds,” said Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “Today the iPad family takes two big leaps forward with an all-new 10.5-inch iPad Air that brings high-end size, features and performance at a breakthrough price, and a major upgrade to the 7.9-inch iPad mini, which also brings Apple Pencil, Retina display and the A12 Bionic chip to the many customers that love its compact size.”

What about the new AirPods .???

The ipad mini is more expensive than the ipad!!! The lineup is so confusing its a joke! 7.9, 9.7, 10.5, 11, 12.9... some work with the first gen apple pencil, some with the second gem, some accept the smart keyboard, but there are different smart keyboard sizes! A12 on ipad air and mini, A10X on ipad (I might be wrong as I am really getting confused here) and some other on the pro models! What happened to the days when we had “iphone” and “ipad”!!

iPad mini starts at 400? Why so expensive? The last one was at 400 with 128gb not 64gb like this one.
