The iPad mini has received the most significant upgrades of all in today's iPad announcements, receiving a Retina display upgrade, as well as the latest A7 processor. This makes the iPad mini power equivalent with the iPad Air, with the same resolution screen in its smaller form factor for a higher 326ppi.

While the iPad Air will go on sale next Friday, 1 November, Apple has given the iPad mini an availability date of "later in November".

Pricing for the iPad mini will start at AU$479 for the Wi-Fi 16GB model and AU$629 for the 4G equivalent. The iPad mini will also now be available with 128GB of storage, maxing out at AU$949 for the 128GB model with 4G.
