Its aluminum case might not have changed much, but the newest iPad mini with Retina display is faster and more powerful than ever. With the exception of the Retina display, all the important upgrades on the latest iPad mini can be found on the inside, in all-new features such as the A7 chip, dual antennas and MIMO technology, and iOS 7.

The iPad mini with Retina display has been re-engineered so that it’s just as efficient as the full-sized iPad. The newest iPad mini is powered by the A7 chip, a processor built on desktop-class architecture, guaranteed to deliver higher CPU and graphics speeds and a longer battery life. This iPad mini offers processing speed that’s four times as fast as that of previous-generation iPad minis’. Graphics performance has been significantly improved, too.

Like the iPad air, the iPad mini with Retina display also sports an M7 coprocessor, which collects motion information and frees up the A7 chip for more important tasks. All these upgrades help the iPad mini with Retina display deliver a more responsive user experience, especially for processing-intensive apps.

Aside from Apple’s latest mobile processors, the iPad mini with Retina display is also equipped with dual antennas and MIMO (multiple in multiple out) technology. This hardware enables faster, more reliable connections via 802.11n WiFi, allowing for more convenient downloads and uploads.

iOS 7 is another upgrade that improves the iPad mini with Retina display’s overall performance. According to Apple, its latest mobile OS is designed for the iPad mini, enabling functions such as AirDrop and Control Center. Along with improved multi-tasking capabilities, these new features make everyday use of the iPad mini with Retina display even smoother.

Of course, the iPad mini also has some familiar features, including the Retina display, a 5 MP FaceTime camera and a 1080p HD still and video rear camera. The Retina display on the newest iPad mini makes it one of the best small tablets for photo editing and viewing, video playback, and creative tasks such as sketching. The tablet’s 7.9-inch Retina display contains more than 3.1 million pixels and features a 2048-by-1536 resolution that allows for the display of razor-sharp details and vibrant colors.
