Product information

Apple’s iPad mini with Retina display delivers the full iPad experience into a smaller, lighter package. With impressive specifications that deliver a fast and fluid experience with incredible visuals and an all-day battery life, iPad mini with Retina display still fits easily in one hand.

Small Wonder
iPad mini with Retina display is thin, lightweight and perfectly sized to fit in the palm of your hand. It measures just 7.5mm in depth and weighs an amazing 331g, 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.

Retina display
The astonishing 7.9-inch Retina display comprises of 3.1 million pixels at a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels, displaying incredible detail in your photos and videos and ensuring that text looks sharp and well defined.

iOS 7
iPad mini with Retina display 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 mini even simpler than ever. There are over 500,000 apps available to download from the App store, while apps like iPhoto, iMovie, GarageBand, Pages, Numbers, and Keynote are included, so you’re in a better position than ever to enjoy the best of iPad.

Fast and fluid
Combining Apple’s new 64-bit A7 chip and M7 coprocessor in iPad mini with Retina display gives you more speed and performance to do what you want, without compromising on battery life. The A7 allows apps and games to run faster and respond quicker, with superior support for more detailed graphics and visual effects, comparable to those only previously seen on desktop computers and games consoles. The 64-bit architecture supports both the older apps that you love as well as newer, more robust apps that make more possible on an iPad mini with Retina display. The M7 coprocessor measures motion through the gyroscope, accelerometer and compass, to enable apps to give you a better experience on the go. This allows iPad mini with Retina display to maintain the same great battery life that you expect from an iPad.

Capture it in HD
Dual cameras on iPad mini with Retina display 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 with Retina display, a 5 megapixel iSight camera will help you snap your shot or full HD video at a moment’s notice, with the A7 processor making the adjustments needed to ensure a great picture or video automatically.

Faster Wi-Fi
iPad mini with Retina display features two antennas and MIMO (Multiple-Input Multiple Output) technology to help you get the most out of your router and internet connection. MIMO combines with dual-band wireless, delivering download speeds that are potentially twice as fast as previous generations, reaching up to 300Mbps.

Not as good as expected The thing I hate most about this item is when you are typing emails etc and it just changes the words and when you read back it makes no sense at all. I thought my sister was writing a bit weird but now I know it is the ipad changing words. I spend more time now having to re-read everything to make sure it is ok. I love the size of this and the camera is brilliant. Disappointed that for a lot of things I still need my Lao top. I have downloaded apps to be able to do things on iPad but found a lot are pretty useless. I use this for surfing the net and checking my emails. Must be too used to Microsoft as it takes time getting used to Apple. If it did all that my laptop did I would give it 10 out of 10. I suppose as I get more used to it I might be able to find ways to get more done. I am happy with this ipad though and would recommend it to buy. 06 September 2014
Great Ipad Much happier with this the mini ipad than the regular ipad. Easier to use, easier to read books on and easier to carry around. Highly recommend. 19 August 2014
Great for our holiday We bought this for a holiday abroad, to keep in contact with our children. There are so many places to connect up to free wifi which helps. I also took a camera which has stayed in my bag as his takes wonderful pictures, which are easily sent attached to an email or placed on social mediA. 05 August 2014
As expected- excellent Usual apple quality. Very good product . Recommended 05 August 2014
Really useful I'd put off buying it as I already have an iPhone and a MacBook, but actually it's a great addition. Really handy and I also bought a keypad for it so can use it in work situations easily. Great to get the three year guarantee from John Lewis also. 25 June 2014
Excellent product Best buy in a long time, very good price, easy to use, my kids absolutely love it. 18 June 2014
Ideal product Process of purchasing was very easy. The shop had several products on display which could be held and used. The sales women were helpful and knowledgeable. Easy to watch sky go and catch-up TV. Size of screen is fine. 17 June 2014
Can't put it down! I thought long and hard when choosing a tablet., finally deciding the the iPad mini. It took me a little time to get used to it as I only have a laptop , however after putting some CDs on it via my laptop for my holiday and buying Scabble which I love I wouldn't be without it. It is so quick to check emails and to browse the internet. I'm not technically minded being of retirement age but I have got used tousling it very quickly. I downloaded the instructions, some of which are hard to understand. I love the camera facility and it is so quick to download books, magazines and music. CDs bought through Amazon can be auto ripped to your tablet which is so easy. I thought I would use it mainly when away but have found it great for home use. 03 June 2014
