iPad mini 2 review

iPad mini 2 review

Complete review of Apple's new Retina-display equipped, 64-bit, 7.9-inch tablet In 2012 Apple took the year-old 9.7-inch iPad 2, condensed it down to 7.9 inches, and re-launched it as the new iPad mini. Every inch an iPad, yet one of stark contrasts - a design from the future wrapped around...
Retina iPad mini: How good is it for comic book reading?

Retina iPad mini: How good is it for comic book reading?

I don't know how big the intersection is between gadget nerds and comic book nerds, but based on how many questions we've gotten about how legible and enjoyable comics are on the new Retina iPad mini, I'm guessing it's pretty close to Galactus big. The iPad Air, thanks to its large, 9.7-inch...

Do you see image retention on your Retina iPad mini? [Poll]

Do you see image retention on your Retina iPad mini? Much has been said about the – still frankly pretty darn impressive – display on the Retina iPad mini. Narrow color gamuts are clear to see when you sit the mini next to the iPad Air but what about this image retention issue; are you seeing it...
Retina iPad mini iSight and FaceTime HD camera tests

Retina iPad mini iSight and FaceTime HD camera tests

The iSight camera in the Retina mini remains unchanged from last year's original. It's still the same 5 megapixel, backside illuminated (BSI), five-element, hybrid IR file red, and f/2.4 aperture. What has changed is the Apple A7 processor inside, and the image signal processor (ISP) inside it....

Retina iPad mini display: How icons, text, and comics compare

The Retina iPad mini has an LED-backlit LCD screen with in-plane switching (IPS) for a wide viewing angle. It also has a 2048x1536 display crammed down to 326ppi to fit into a 7.9-inch screen. That's the same pixel count as the iPad Air, the same density as the iPhone 5s, and the same screen...
Retina iPad mini display: High density, narrow color-gamut, possible image retention

Retina iPad mini display: High density, narrow color-gamut, possible image retention

The Retina iPad mini promises all the pixels of the iPad Air at the density of the iPhone 5s. That's 2048x1536 at 326ppi. If that sounds like a screen-dream come true, in many ways it is. Unfortunately, the Retina iPad mini only provides the same, narrower color gamut of the original iPad mini....

Using a keyboard with your iPad? Here are the shortcuts you need to know!

While Apple did a great job with the virtual software keyboard for the iPad, for some people nothing replaces the productivity of pounding on a real, physical, hardware keyboard. Luckily, you can connect a variety of Bluetooth keyboards to achieve just that, and when you do, some traditional...

Retina iPad mini: Silver vs. space gray gallery

While the new Retina iPad mini certainly looks a lot like last year's original, Apple has switched out the old, scratch and chip-prone slate gray color for an all new, all-the-more resilient, space gray finish. It also matches the space gray options for the iPhone 5s and iPad Air, if that sort of...

Family Portrait: The iPad Air and Retina iPad mini

One is 9.7-inches, the other is 7.9-inches. That, primarily, is the difference between the iPad Air and the brand new iPad mini with Retina Display. Both pack the A7 chip, the M7 motion co-processor and of course, that glorious 2048x1536 resolution Retina Display. And, since the redesign of the...

It may be dark outside, but the iPad mini is certainly keeping our eyes open! This isn't a proper unboxing video – because I cheated...

Did you order a new Retina iPad mini? [Poll]

Did you order a Retina iPad mini? Well, well, well. Apple sure dropped this one on us, and caught many of us – sleepy Brits included – by surprise. Just last night as we were all getting ready to bed a rumor surfaced that we might be seeing the Retina iPad mini today, and lo and behold here it...

Apple A7: Way more power than a phone needs to have

Apple A7: Way more power than a phone needs to have

When Brian Klug joined me on the Vector podcast last week, I asked him if including the Apple A7 chipset in both the iPhone 5s and the iPad Air and Retina iPad mini meant the phone was way overpowered, or the tablets were way underpowered. He answered in the best way possible - that the phone was...
