    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.

    I love my big 12.9 iPad Pro, but while it has it's place, it can be a little large for casual reading and carrying around. The new iPad Mini takes care of that! It's light, fast, and best of all, has become my "go-to" pad for consuming news and reading books. Add Apple Pencil compatibility, and it's perfect. It was a long wait between the last version of the iPad Mini until this newest one, but it was worth the wait.

    It’s a replacement for a broken unit...

    ... but Apple announcing that the new iPad os will support normal external storage made a big difference in choosing to replace it with another iPad. And amazingly they’re finally going to fix the ridiculous cursor/select/replace method that barely makes sense on a phone. And mouse support and improved “file system “ - not terribly confident it will BE a file system but I’m ok with just having rational storage.

    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

    Having the Apple Pencil Suport makes a BIG difference. I also highly recommend an App called Drawing Pad. Also, Hello Crayon. I also download coloring pages from the internet to bring into the Hello Crayon app and color them. I also got the iPad Mini because it was more affordable and more portable. I’m really enjoying mine. I would give this more stars then 5.

    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.

    First off, we’re not fanboys, but apple is so simple it’s foolish not to have one. My wife and I run a business together and we tend to reach for our iPads more than a computer! It’s still not a computer replacement, but it’s close. My kids all have apple products, so communication wise, it just plain works... all the time.

    I really like my new iPad mini. It has plenty of memory for all my game apps and pictures. I am now able to download even more apps that keep me busy doing new puzzles and coloring pictures. It take really good pictures also. It was great to use at my granddaughter's graduation. Love this product.

    Perfect For What I Do

    Short and sweet, this is exactly what I needed for a quick sketch pad for composition. Plenty of space, uploadable to GB or Logic on Mac, compact but big enough for books (Manuals, .pdf's, etc.). Plus linking to the iPhone, this my go to for many things. All quality things cost more, buy quality!

    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.

    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,

    Having used my iPad Mini 4 since 2015 I was thrilled to see a new version come out. Faster then the mini 4. Double the storage (256 vs 128 on the mini 4). Love that I can use the Logitech Crayon with it for drawing and coloring apps. Look forward to using it for many years.

    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!

    I needed a tablet for reading and studying on the road. This fits the bill perfectly. Size is just right. I am happy that I waited and got the newest version as I am pleased with the speed. Now that I can use the pencil is an added bonus.
