Apple's Phil Schiller unveils a new iPad Mini with Retina Display. The new tablet features a 2,048x1,536-pixel display, and houses Apple's A7 processor. Pricing starts at $399 for the Wi-Fi 16GB model; it will be available in November.

Let's talk about iPad Mini. iPad Mini has been a big hit with customers because it delivers the complete iPad experience in an even smaller design, 7.9-inch. Let's you do all the things that you love to do with iPad. Just surf the web, do your e-mail, make FaceTime calls, read books, watch movies and use all those hundreds of thousands of applications. Customers love the complete iPad experience the iPad Mini delivers. The one most requested feature to add to iPad Mini is a beautiful Retina display, and that's what we're gonna do today. The 7.9-inch Retina display that's 2048 by 1536 pixels, the same number of pixels as an iPad Air, so it runs all the same software and use it for everything you do from looking at photos but the pixels are so small that you can't see the individual ones in the normal distance. But text is sharp as the finest printed newspaper or magazine, the experience is just amazing. And the new iPad Mini with Retina display is also powered by this brand new A7 chip with its 64-bit architecture, this [unk] a huge jumper performance for iPad Mini. Up to four times faster CPU tasks and up to eight times faster at graphic tasks. You're gonna feel performance across everything you do that's so fast and still that great all day 10-hour battery life. The iPad with Retina display also gets the new two times faster WiFi with Mymo antennas. It gets the expanded LTE support for more carriers around the world. That's everything you love about iPad, the 5-megapixel iSight camera, the new FaceTime HD camera. It comes in silver and white and space gray and black. And the new iPad Mini with Retina display will be priced at just $399. That's for 16 gigs with WiFi and $529 for cellular with cellular technology. They'll be available later in November and we're gonna keep the original iPad Mini in the line as well because as you know, it starts at just $329 but what we're going to do is at the same time lower the price with that iPad Mini to just $299.
