Small Wonder

It measures just 7.5mm in depth and weighs an amazing 341g, 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. And with iPad mini with Retina display Wi-Fi + Cellular model, you can connect to mobile networks for up to 4G LTE internet access, all you’ll need is a compatible SIM card from your network provider.

Q & As

Apple iPad mini with Retina display, Apple A7, iOS 7, 7.9", Wi-Fi & Cellular, 128GB 5 5 2 2
Almost Painless Having a full size 3rd generation ipad previous (lost/stolen on a flight), I was nervous about going to the mini as I did not want to compromise performance. It was good to see that (apart from the obvious size) the specification against the full size and mini are the identical. I recall after I purchased my original (full size) ipad, my thought was, well as incredible as it is, for me its still big and not as convenient to carry around as I would like; so after a couple months deliberating, I went for it, the ipad mini - good choice. Containing the faster A7 processor, for myself I don't see any real improvement in respect of performance. On set up it gave me a real chance to clear out the stuff I did not really use and though there was a need spend a bit of time on how itunes needs to be configured to copy my previous purchases, its there, up and running and as ever with so much Apple stuff, "does what it says on the tin" The additional guarantee from John Lewis was a no-brainer and just great service. Just one point to be aware of, all versions have an almost identical box, so just check the specification on the box is the one you have asked for! 06 June 2014
Great buy Upgraded to this from ipad2 and love it. Really crisp graphics and colours and an easier size to carry around. The two year guarantee is an added bonus. 01 January 2014
