    Perfect size with pencil support!

    This is what I was dreaming about since pencil integration was introduced. I carry my iPad everywhere, and the mini is the perfect size for mobile. Carrying something large, even if it’s the iPad Air felt uncomfortable. But this fits in my bag and I can whip it out to read, watch videos, or write notes / sketch wherever I am. I am in love with it. Con- pencil is not included and it’s steep at another $100. But once you get it, it’s a match made in heaven.

    iPad mini 5

    So I’m an Apple fan boy. Their products are amazing. If you don’t have an iPad mini it’s a great product. But not a huge improvement over the iPad mini 4. I’ve grown tired of apple holding back on tech for the next big thing. Not having a face scanner when they are able to place the tech in a phone is ridiculous. The 5 is faster than the 4 and some slight improvements but not worth the upgrade. That being said if you don’t have a mini then get this one then wait a couple of generations for your next one.

    If you enjoy the iPad Mini, you will certainly enjoy this update. It has a faster processor, more storage and more RAM. You will notice the speed improvements. It is nice that this device finally supports Apple Pencil and Logitech Crayon. Both work smoothly on this device. This device is getting close to being perfect. However, I wish it had FaceID and support Apple’s Smart Keyboard. Nonetheless I still gave it 5 stars

    Great for FaceTime

    I bought this to be a bridge between my iPhone SE and Macbook Air and so far so good. Screen is a great middle size to watch videos on a plan or surf the web on the couch without having to pull out the laptop. Biggest perk for me so far is the upgraded face camera over what I have on my other devices, makes for better FaceTime calls. So far, happy with the purchase.

    I love all my Apple products. My first mini is pretty much out of memory and there are no updates for it since it is older but I still use it and am willing to share it with my grand daughter. I really was happy when the new mini came out and had to have it. It is all I expected-fast, fun and light as a feather.

    Awesome screen! I wish it had more storage options

    I purchased this for my girlfriend to replace her aging first generation iPad Mini. It’s night and day faster and the screen resolution is much better! I was disappointed that the largest storage option was 256GB. She uses it for long plane trips and she likes to have a nice assortment of movies.

    I love this device. It’s the perfect size for almost every use. If I needed a mobile tablet the size of a computer screen, I’m better off buying a full power laptop. This size is the perfect right off of screen size and ability to carry around. Only challenge is that nobody will sell me a cover. :-)

    I love the iPad mini form factor. This is another great update to their line. It's a no brainer upgrade if you have a 2 and 3 mini. Thinner, better display, much faster. Little harder sell if you have a 4 mini, but if you use processor-intensive apps or need the Apple Pencil, I highly recommend it,

    Great replacement for iPad

    Our old iPad was showing it's age, so we decided to go with this faster, smaller version as a replacement. After a few weeks of use, we really like it. Resolution is great; it is fast; and we haven't had a crashing issue with our Game Changer app like we were on the older version.

    I love the Apple Mini 4 pad... small enough to put in my purse and large enough to view the screen easily. When I want to travel light I put this mini in my purse and take off. I have a larger iPad as well that I really enjoy for larger tasks and heavier loads of transport.

    I do everything with this thing. Read ebooks, edit photos and videos, play Fortnite, watch movies, take notes, etc. I used to own an iPad Pro (2017) but replaced it for this smaller device and I definitely do NOT regret it! Fits in most of my purses too so that’s a plus!

    I've had 3 iPad mini's, a 3 and a two 4's prior to upgrading to the iPad Mini 5. Wow, was this an upgrade! The size was always perfect, along with the weight and Apple, for a change, did not try to improve on what was already good. Overall the best tablet ever!

    Seems quite a bit faster than my iPhone X. I really like the size for playing games. The larger models are too big to easily play games with. In addition to being much faster, the mini's screen handles glare better than the regular iPad.

    I wish it was a bit cheaper but this hardware flies and I love the mini form factor for travel. This is nowhere near a laptop replacement attempt, I use this strickly for media consumption, some gaming, and some light email/texting.

    The new iPad mini is the best iPad i’ve ever used. Its no comparison to the Pro line of iPads but the performance is on par with the iPhone Xs. Games run perfectly and there are years worth of compatible accessories make it a great buy

    I like to read and because of the size, I can easily carry it with me. I find that I use it more often than I do the computer. The only problem that I have is that some of my contacts did not transfer from my old iPad.

    functionally the Ipad 4 and Ipad 5 are the same but the new one (5) is very fast compared to the 4. I was having some trouble with the 4 reading my fingerprint but the new one works great. love the speed of the new ipad

    I have been waiting for an iPad Mini refresh for years. The new product is great and meets all expectations. The CPU performance is excellent and the addition of Touch ID is a nice feature. Overall a great product!

    I bought this iPad mini 2019 version to bring it with me when traveling. It’s very portable with its small body and gives me better viewing experiences compared to an iPhone. I really like this iPad mini.
