iPad Mini - iPad 4 - iPhone5: Lots of Choices - What's Best?
Apple’s iPad mini is the latest and fourth generation iPad. It was released in the month of October, 2012. The new iPad has just about everything from the previous iPad. Its prices vary 16GB for $499, 32GB for $599 and 64 GB for $699. It has a faster A6X processor which adds extra system and graphics. With iPad mini Cellular data options and 4G connectivity LTE are also available for a low price and for the very first Apple is offering sprint technology network in the US which is compatible with the iPad model. Truly Apple hasn’t done much to make a difference between the latest iPad and the older versions; even the case looks the similar.
The important change which needs to be mentioned on the latest iPad is found on the inside, which is in the form of the A6X speedy chip. This A6X chip is advertised to make its performance double on the recent iPad. But according to many this is not the sufficient enough upgrade.
Even the design of the latest iPad from the apple has not been done in the fourth generation from its predecessor. It has the same weight, size, the same form factor and also the unchanged good-looking retina display. Attractive cover accessory is also not changed. The one good thing to make note of course is that the latest iPad from the Apple is having the smaller lightning port connector at the bottom, instead of 30 pin dock connector. It is really difficult to get the excited experience of lightning on the latest fourth generation iPad. This lightening connector has a very good experience on the previous devices of Apple products like iPhone 5, iPod Nano, and iPod touch.
Apple has not chosen to create any dock accessories for the recent iPad fourth generation. It is definitely going to bother some of the users. Fortunately Apple has updated the SD card and USB adapter accessory to go with the fresh lightning connector. This new feature can be used by the user for editing videos and photos. The Apple iPad mini does ship with the advanced amperage charger which will take less time to recharge the huge battery that is found on the device. This is also having good upgraded face Time camera which is 1.2 megapixels. It is an important upgrade and will have better performance when compared to the previous generation models.
