New iPad Mini features super crisp and clear Retina Display
-I am Scott Stein here at Apple's event in San Francisco.
And last year, the iPad Mini came out and everyone would expect it.
It was a really nice design.
But what about the retina display?
Well, here it is.
It's the iPad Mini with retina display and it feels exactly the same as last year's model, still really light, really compact.
And yes, that screen is 7.9 inches, 2048 x 1536.
It is the same resolution as the 9.7-inch iPad.
So, you're actually getting better pixel density in this model.
You're also getting an A7 processor, which is a bump up from the A5 last year.
So, it's leaping a generation.
And you got an M7 coprocessor, really the same specs underneath it feels to the iPhone 5S, but no touch ID.
These are standard home buttons here.
Now, this is coming out later in November and the price is gonna be 399, a little more than last year's 329 iPad Mini, but that iPad Mini is sticking around.
It will drop down to 299
and is currently available.
So, you have a choice of retina and non-retina versions with a little bit of a processor leap.
And at the same time, you're gonna have that iPad Air, which is gonna be a lot lighter and it's gonna have a similar resolution.
So, keep an eye out for both this fall.
It remains to see which one people choose.
I'm Scott Stein with a look at the new retina display iPad Mini.
