After comparing the iPad Air 2 with the last year iPad Air, it's now time to have a look at the differences between the iPad Mini 3 and the iPad Mini with Retina display.
What you need to know, beforehand, is that Apple has also revised the names for its products from the iPad Mini line. Thus, last year's iPad mini with Retina display is now being called just the iPad mini 2. It would've looked kind of weird being called iPad mini 2 with Retina display, so yeah, this makes sense.
However, there's not too much to compare when it comes to the newer model, as it seems that Apple doesn't think it should endow the newest Mini with better performance. Here are the single features that have changed:
Color - just like the iPad Air 2, the new iPad mini comes in gold, as well. It seems that Apple really thinks this can be a sales booster.
New storage configurations - also, just like it's bigger brother, it is now available in 16GB, 64GB and 128 GB options starting from $399.
Touch ID - the fingerprint scanner is present, just as previous rumors have hinted.
Everything else is just the same - the processor, the cameras and even the display, which isn't getting the improvements that the iPad Air got.
