Mega power. Mini sized. The all-new iPad mini with the powerful A15 Bionic chip fits in the palm of your hand. It has an all-screen design with a stunning 8.3" Liquid Retina display. Superfast 5G. New Ultra Wide front camera with Center Stage. USB-C. iPadOS. And it works with Apple Pencil (2nd generation). Available in four gorgeous colors.

Apple's new iPad mini is available for pre-order right now and you should be able to walk into an Apple Store and pick one up from Friday, September 24. That's also when anyone placing an online pre-order should expect their order to arrive, too.

Apple announced the new tablet alongside a standard iPad as well as the iPhone 13 lineup and Apple Watch Series 7.

The new iPad mini is shaping up to be a great little tablet — all you need to do is decide which of those four gorgeous colors you're going to go for!

  • For me it was the most needed replacement. My mini 4 is long in the tooth. Still very usable but slows down sometimes among other things. I took the simplest path and did the Apple Store trade in. They gave me 149 for it. 350 plus tax for the new Mini. Like the 4 it'll be my leisure use item and the one I take with me on the go for the next 4 years. Look forward to getting it.
