Apple iPad mini 5 Wi-Fi + Cellular 256GB - Gold
iPad mini - Mini just got mightier.
iPad mini is beloved for its size and capability. And now there are even more reasons to love it. The A12 Bionic chip with Neural Engine. A 7.9-inch Retina display with True Tone. And Apple Pencil, so you can capture your biggest ideas wherever they come to you.1 It's still iPad mini. There's just more of it than ever.
Design - Compact. Portable. Pocket-ready.
iPad mini features a thin, light and portable design that makes it the perfect on-the-go companion. At less than 500 grams and just 6.1 millimetres thin, it's easy to carry with you in one hand or take out of a pocket or bag whenever inspiration strikes.
Stay connected with fast Wi-Fi and 4G LTE Advanced whenever you need it. Up to 10 hours of battery life means you can go all day on a single charge.
Performance - Power beyond its size.
The A12 Bionic chip with Neural Engine enables a remarkable level of power and intelligence. It uses real-time machine learning to recognise patterns, make predictions and learn from experience. With all this power, you can run apps like Adobe Photoshop CC*, experience augmented reality or play an immersive game with console-level graphics.
Retina Display - It's not the size of the display. It's the quality of the pixel.
iPad mini packs over 3 million pixels into a 7.9-inch display. And we made them all count. Whether you're reading in the park or editing a video in your home office, the high brightness, wide colour and antireflective coating offer true-to-life detail and razor-sharp text. And True Tone dynamically adjusts white balance so images look natural in any light.
Cameras - Stay in touch. Shoot in HD. Play in AR.
The front and back cameras in iPad mini let you take vivid photos and cinematic videos. But the fun doesn't stop there. Make FaceTime calls with friends, scan documents and mark them up, or even use augmented reality to plan out your lounge room d?cor.
Apple Pencil - Pencil meets mini. Magic happens.
Apple Pencil opens up new possibilities for iPad mini. Together they turn iPad mini into your take-anywhere digital notebook. Jot down notes, sign documents and fill out forms. Or capture your most creative ideas by drawing, painting or sketching on the go.
iOS - Designed to help you get the most out of iPad.
iOS on iPad mini gives you the full iPad experience in the most compact iPad. Use multiple apps at once, launch your favourite apps from the Dock, and drag and drop files using simple Multi-Touch gestures. And you can access your files all in one place with the Files app.
Apps - Over a million ways to use iPad mini.
iPad mini comes with powerful Apple-designed apps like Photos, Maps, Messages, Mail and Safari. And with over a million iPad apps on the App Store, there's an app for anything you want to do.4 Edit a video, check your social media, sketch an idea and join a battle royale with friends.
iCloud - The best place for all your photos, files and more.
iCloud keeps things like your photos, files and notes safe, current and conveniently available on all your devices.5 And the Files app lets you manage all your files - in iCloud Drive and on your iPad mini - in one central location.
Privacy and Security - Your data belongs to you. And only you.
Like every Apple product, iPad mini was designed with your privacy and security in mind. Touch ID makes unlocking your iPad mini simple and secure. And you can make purchases conveniently and safely with Apple Pay in selected apps and on participating websites. Just place your finger on the Touch ID sensor and you're good to go.
Accessibility - Designed to empower everyone.
We believe technology is most powerful when everyone can use it. That's why iPad mini comes with accessibility features that support vision, interaction, hearing and learning needs. Like VoiceOver, which tells you what's happening on your screen, and Switch Control, which lets you interact with iPad mini without touching it.
