    According to a recent report coming from ArsTechnica publication, it seems that Apple has engineered the iPad mini 4's version of the A8 processor to make it slightly faster than the original chip used in the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.

    The Mini 4's processor runs at about 1.5 gigahertz, which is just a tad more powerful than the 1.4 gigahertz inside Apple's 2014 iPhones. According to Geekbench testing, the new iPad Mini is also roughly 20 percent faster than the Mini 2 and 3.

    The Mini 4 also has 2 gigabytes of RAM, which is double the amount in previous iPad Mini and iPhone models. The Mini 4 was announced last Wednesday, and starts at $399, with most of its new features being 'borrowed' from the iPad Air 2.
