Apple iPad Mini 3: Still Great, But Not as Good a Deal
What can I say about the iPad mini 3 that hasn't already been said? No, seriously, what can I say? Apple's latest mini is essentially the same product as the first iPad Mini With Retina display with exactly four upgrades, only three of which are significant. Apple's iPad Mini 3 is exactly the same size and shape as the last model: 7.8 x 5.3 x 0.29 inches. Consider the new iPad Air 2 - released concurrently with the iPad Mini 3. The front-facing FaceTime camera is still 1.2MP and capable of capturing 720p video, meaning it's unchanged from the last iPad Mini and matches the iPad Air 2. Like the iPad Air 2, the iPad Mini 3 supports Apple Pay for in-app purchases. Ultimately, the iPad Mini 3, like the iPad Mini before it, is an excellent mid-size tablet. I just wish Apple had acknowledged that its new iPad Mini 3 is really still last year's model and lowered the base price of the entire Mini line. The iPad mini 3 is a great tablet, but so was the iPad mini With Retina Display.
