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 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.

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.

Get smarter suggestions from Siri, be more productive with new multitasking features and enjoy enhanced performance and security thanks to improvements to the very foundation of iOS. It comes with powerful apps already installed that make every day easier, while existing features, like QuickType, have been enhanced to help you say what you want quicker and easier than ever. And if you're new to iPad, it's easier than ever to set things up, with the Move to iOS app, which securely transfers your contacts, message history, camera photos and videos, web bookmarks, mail accounts, calendars, wallpaper, and DRM-free songs and books from an Android device.

Q & As

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Once You're Used to It I must admit I was looking forward to this immensely, however I soon began to find it irritating, The thing which irked me most is that I often want to go back to the screen I just came from, and couldn't always do it. This was (and still is to some extent!) the thing which annoys me most about the iPads. Having said that, I went on to learn that each function usually has its own way of returning to the previous screen. The liking for this little dumpy wonder has grown on me gradually, and as the learning curve ascends I've now reached the stage where I don't think I could do without it! 13 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it When the iPad first came out I wasn't convinced of its usefulness, but the mini is great. I can do all my office work on the go. A great bit of kit Also very useful if you are into flying, various apps help you navigate faultlessly. Highly recommended 06 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Apple iPad mini 2, Apple A7, iOS 8, 7.9", Wi-Fi & Cellular, 32GB Bought as a 2nd one to take away and take out with me as the larger one is too big for comfort. This fits the bill admirably, well made, reliable, easy to use and anything I do on it ties up with the larger one. Just what I wanted Plus it has a 3yr guarantee. 11 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ipad mini 2 Much better than the earlier model; faster and sharper screen. Battery slow to charge compared with iphone but life is good 04 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic Very easy to set up and use. Can't fault the product. 16 December 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Thank goodness I took the plunge! I've used a PC for more years than I care to remember but with my 70th birthday on the horizon I felt that technology was "getting away" from me. I didn't want a smart phone so a tablet seemed the answer. Having done a little research I was convinced that I should take the plunge and I'm so glad I did. The iPad is very intuitive in use and although I'm not very "techy" setting it up to intercept my e-mails proved to be surprisingly easy. I'm a Mozilla Thunderbird user and that application does not interface directly with the iPad so I had to find a work-around to import my email address book but that didn't cause much grief. (I exported to MS Outlook first and from there to the iPad). I use MS Internet Explorer for browsing but although I haven't yet bothered to import my "Favourites" I don't expect any difficulties. The best thing about the iPad is that it's "there" immediately you switch on - no irksome, never ending boot-up and emails start arriving straightaway. It is in all other respects very fast - browsing is a delight - the screen being both very clear and of an adequate size for my ageing eyes. And there are loads of interesting apps out there to play with, and lots are free. I wasn't sure whether to go for the Wifi + cellular option but once I realised the iPad's utility I wanted to be able to take it out and about without having to rely on "hot spots". I now have dual connectivity at a very modest price and 3G is great. So if you're wondering whether an iPad is for you - it is, spoil yourself! 09 December 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Just as good in mini! Brilliant display, and great size for carrying around. Battery life could be better though. 30 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great product i would recommend this to anyone looking for tablet. buying from john lewis is great for so many reasons. free 2/3 years warranty and great customer service. 14 January 2014
