Apple iPad mini, Apple A5, iOS 8, 7.9", Wi-Fi & Cellular, 16GB, Silver
Delivering the iPad experience in a smaller package, the Apple iPad mini makes taking your iPad with you easier than ever. Featuring a 7.9-inch display, FaceTime HD and iSight cameras and an all-day battery life, plus over 500,000 apps and games available from the App Store, iPad mini is thin, light, fully-featured and available at an incredible price.
A Smaller Package
iPad mini is thin, lightweight and perfectly sized to fit in the palm of your hand. It measures just 7.2mm in depth and weighs an amazing 312g, making it perfectly balanced to sit in your hand or slip into a bag when you’re not using it. With the 7.9-inch screen, iPad mini delivers a screen that’s 35 per cent larger than on a 7-inch tablet, while still being small enough to feel comfortable in one hand.
iOS 7- simpler than ever
This iPad mini will arrive in your hands with iOS 7 installed. iOS 7 has been redesigned with a beautiful new look, easy-to-use interface, amazing features and improved security. Smarter multitasking, Control Centre and AirDrop combined with iCloud makes using an iPad even simpler than ever. And with apps like iPhoto, iMovie, GarageBand, Pages, Numbers, and Keynote free to download, you’re in a better position than ever to enjoy the best of iPad.
Apple’s A5 chip gives the iPad mini the power it needs to ensure smooth performance, fast graphics and responsive apps. The A5 is power-efficient, helping to ensure iPad mini prospers from a battery life of up to 10 hours, so you can use it all day without needing to recharge.
Capture the moment
Dual cameras on iPad mini give you plenty to smile for. The front-facing FaceTime HD camera is great for online video chats, with a next-generation backside illuminated sensor with larger pixels helping to brighten your calls and selfies, even in low-light. On the back of iPad mini, a 5 megapixel iSight camera will snap beautiful shots with autofocus and face detection or incredible full HD video with image stabilisation.
