My favorite iPad
Owned for less than 1 week when reviewed.
I've had every iPad Apple makes, iPad, Air, Pro, and now the new mini 6. This my favorite of them all. I have a MacBook, and this is the perfect companion. I use it for so many things, and it's very powerful. I can take this with me when I don't want or need to take my MacBook.
Purchased this iPad for my 4 year old and it was super lightweight for him. He is able to watch his favorite you tubers and movies. I set him up an Apple ID so that he can FaceTime grandparents and other family members! I did purchase a case and screen protector to avoid any damage. Also purchased the apple care to cover potential damages and love that I can take it into any Best Buy to be serviced.
Originally I ordered purple and was told I was getting it sent to me and when I looked in the box it was grey so I took it back to customer service and got the purple order and altogether I love my new purple iPad mini I must say tho make sure u don’t get the run around since it is hard to find be patient and also when purchasing know exactly what u want don’t settle
I bought this as a business tool to help keep me organized. It does what I need it to do. Works nicely with the Apple Pencil. One thing is how small everything is on web but I zoom in with no problem. Not a big deal. No web lag or at least I’m not noticing. All in all it’s a perfect iPad and nice upgrade from the iPad mini 4.
Such a cool rendition on the Mini Ipad, its so light, and so so so much fun.
Every day things like checking the news, playing a game, or even the weather feels so much better when your device feels lighter than your phone …. This is simply amazing!!!!!!

Apple iPad mini 6th gen (2021) reviewRejoice iPad mini fans, the smallest Apple tablet has just gotten its biggest upgrade to date! There is so much new stuff - a larger screen in a smaller
iPad mini 6 extended-use review – There's no substitute for portability [Video]I've been using Apple's dramatically redesigned iPad mini for about two months now, and my biggest takeaway is that it's a great device for reading and note taking. But as you'll see in my iPad mini 6 extended-use review, it's not without
iPad mini 6 shipping estimates begin slipping into October and NovemberThe iPad mini 6 pre-orders opened just after the “California Streaming” event, with the first orders arriving on September 24. If you waited until today to try to pre-order one by next week, you'll probably need to wait at least the second half
A:AnswerYes, I see it in significant effect. It's not just scrolling either, it messes with anything flowing through that region of the screen, including animations. A trained eyes will see 'squash and stretch' when in landscape too. Portrait scrolling is largely where it can make people nauseous. If a software update doesn't show up very shortly, it's likely a true hardware issue, so I'd then return this and waiting until I have confidence they've fixed the next batch. I've confirmed this to exist on around 10 different new iPads minis, most demo units, as well as mine. Too bad, it's exactly the device I've been waiting for, otherwise. - I'd recommend holding off on buying for a bit.
A:AnswerThis new model of iPad mini uses USB-C for charging. So, if your previous iPad or any other mobile Apple device used the Lightning connector, that would be a no. However, the box comes with the charging cable and the power brick, which means that you should not worry about that.
A:AnswerYes, it does have Bluetooth. You should be able to connect to wireless earphones, headphones, speakers, and even keyboards. It also has two cameras, one in the front and the other on the back. They have a new feature called Center Stage where the camera tracks the people on frame and focuses on a really intuitive way.
A:AnswerIf you go to the iPad mini website on apple.com, you can simulate an order by clicking on "Order" at the top right corner of the page. Then, make the configuration that you want. Before you "Add to bag", there is an "Add a trade-in" option where you just have to click on "Get started". This will pop-up a small window where it navigates you through a series of questions where it asks you about the brand (in this case is Apple), the Serial Number (you can get it from you iPad Pro settings), and some questions regarding the condition of the device where at the end it should give you the value of your trade in.
Now, if you want to do this through Best Buy, you can use the website tradein.bestbuy.com where, through a series of questions, it might give you an offer. However, the few tries I made with this website do not offer any trade-in value and only offer you to recycle it. That is why the first option I gave you was to do it directly with Apple. Good luck!
