Apple iPad Mini 5th Generation Review and Features

The fifth-generation iPad Mini (stylized and marketed as iPad mini and colloquially referred to as iPad Mini 5 is a tablet computer in the iPad Mini line, designed, developed, and marketed by Apple Inc.

Announced in a press release along with the third-generation iPad Air on March 18, 2019, and released the same day, it was the first iPad Mini that was released without a live press event. Its predecessor, the iPad Mini 4, was discontinued on the same day.

It shares a similar design to the iPad Mini 4 and features the Apple A12 Bionic chip, 64 or 256GB storage, and a more modernly upgraded 7.9-inch Retina Display with support for Apple Pencil (1st Generation), True Tone display, and Bluetooth 5.0. iFixit’s teardown shows this iPad Mini is equipped with an upgraded 3GB of LPDDR4X RAM, the same as the iPhone XR.

The iPad Mini 5 is the final model with a home button, which has been present on all models since the original in November 2012.

The iPad Mini 5 was discontinued on September 14, 2021, with the announcement of the iPad Mini (6th generation).

The iPad Mini (2019) features the upgraded front camera system of the 7MP (1080p) camera used since 2016 starting with the iPhone 7 and continuing with the iPhone XS, while the rear camera system continues with the older 8MP (1080p) used since the iPad Air 2 in 2014, as such, it cannot be recorded in 4K video.

The iPad Mini uses a Lightning port and has a headphone jack. It has a True Tone display, which allows the LCD to adapt to ambient lighting to change its color and intensity in different environments. It also has a wide color display (Display P3 color gamut), which means it can show more vibrant colors compared to the previous generation.

The Apple A12 Bionic chip powering the iPad Mini (2019) has a 66% higher clock speed than its predecessor, which had a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor; (the Apple A8 in the previous generation was clocked higher than the iPhone 6). The Apple A12 Bionic chip has a 2.49 GHz six-core processor. The iPad Mini (2019) is 3 × faster than the iPad Mini 4 and supports Apple Pencil (1st Generation).

What are the specifications of the Apple iPad Mini 4 tablet?

Here’s a summary of the technical specifications for the Apple iPad Mini 4 tablet:

  • Processor/CPU: 2.49 GHz Hexa-core (2 × Vortex + 4 × Tempest) Apple A12 Bionic

Network

SIM <strong>SIM</strong> (Subscriber Identity Module) is a small card that contains mobile network subscriber's account information. This allows the phone using the card to attach to a mobile network. The SIM card is most commonly associated with GSM and UMTS mobile networks. Moving a SIM card from one phone to another allows a subscriber to switch mobile phones without having to contact their mobile network carrier. SIM cards can also be used by a phone to store limited amounts of data, such as phone numbers and text messages. Nano SIM
