A beautiful display, powerful A5 chip, FaceTime HD camera, iSight camera with 1080p HD video recording, ultrafast wireless, and over 275,000 apps ready to download from the App Store. iPad mini is an iPad in every way, shape, and slightly smaller form.
Perfectly sized LED-backlit display.
iPad mini makes one thing clear: Its 7.9-inch display more than measures up to the complete iPad experience. View web pages in Safari. See where you are and what’s around you using Maps.1 Flick through your photos and watch videos in vivid detail. And wave hello to the family on a FaceTime call.2 The iPad mini display uses the same LED backlight technology as iPad to give you plenty of pop per square inch. And it’s perfectly sized to work with hundreds of thousands of apps made for iPad.
Thin and light design.
iPad mini has everything that makes an iPad an iPad, but it’s a fraction of the size. At just 7.2 millimeters, it’s pencil thin and unbelievably light.3 You can easily hold it in your palm. And stash it in your smallest bag without a second thought, so it’s always close at hand.
Over 275,000 apps from the App Store.
The App Store is home to over 275,000 iPad apps and counting.4 And right from the start, they work on iPad mini. But quantity is only part of the story. These are beautiful, immersive, made-just-for-iPad apps. And they change the way you do everything. You can make a spreadsheet for work, make a Hollywood-style trailer for fun, plan a lesson, plan a trip, or simply plan a meal — all on a device you can hold in one hand.
10-hour battery life.
iPad mini wouldn’t be an iPad without incredible battery life. Even with so much performance packed into such a small space, it still lasts up to 10 hours on a single charge.5 So you can read, watch, play, write, and create whatever you want, as long as you want.
Wave hello with FaceTime video calling.
With FaceTime built into iPad mini, you can make a video call over Wi-Fi or cellular.2 The front-facing FaceTime HD camera gives everyone a great view of you, while the iSight camera on the back lets you show others what you’re seeing. So even when you’re out and about, your friends and family are never out of the loop. You can hear every laugh and see every smile. And with the 7.9-inch display, you’ve got more than enough screen to take in the whole scene. You can also use the front-facing camera for taking self-portraits or recording 720p HD video.
Shoot 5-megapixel still images.
The 5-megapixel iSight camera features a backside illumination sensor that captures great-looking pictures whether by sunlight or candlelight. When you shoot photos, the big, beautiful iPad mini display becomes a big, beautiful viewfinder — giving you plenty of room to compose your shot. Autofocus, tap to focus, and tap to set exposure functions mean every photo you take instantly
becomes frameworthy. And with built-in face detection that automatically balances focus and exposure across up to 10 faces, there’s more room for more grins. So everyone look at iPad mini and say “Cheese.”
Next-generation cellular connectivity— up to LTE.
If you want to connect to the Internet even when you don’t have access to Wi-Fi, choose iPad mini with Wi-Fi + Cellular. It can make ultrafast cellular network
connections around the world — including LTE7 and other advanced wireless networks such as HSPA, HSPA+, and DC-HSDPA. So you can download content, stream video, and browse the web at amazing speeds — without a contract or long-term commitment.

The world’s most advanced mobile operating system.
At the core of every iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch is iOS. It includes all the built-in apps you use every day and all the intuitive technology — like Multi-Touch and Siri — that makes iPad mini so advanced. With every free iOS update comes even more capability for your devices. You’ll find the latest version, iOS 6, already installed on iPad mini. So right out of the box, you get more than 200 new features to make the things you do every day even better.
iCloud is built right into iPad mini. Just turn it on and you’ll have instant access to all the things you need, whether you’re on your iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, Mac, or PC.9 New features in iOS 6 let you do even more with iCloud. Share the photos you want with the people you choose using Shared Photo Streams. Locate, lock, and recover your misplaced iPad mini easier than ever. Browse a web page on one device and pick up where you left off on another device using iCloud Tabs. And that’s just for starters.
Print via AirPrint.
Print right from your iPad mini over Wi-Fi with AirPrint. There’s no software to download, no drivers to install, and no cables to connect. Print from Mail, Photos, Safari, and iBooks. Or any of the iWork apps — Pages, Keynote, and Numbers. With just a few taps, you can send whatever's onscreen to an AirPrint-enabled printer.
A new way to get connected.
iPad mini is so thin and light, it requires an ultraslim connector. It’s called the Lightning connector, and it features an all-digital, eight-signal design that’s significantly more durable than the 30-pin connector. Another brilliant feature of Lightning: It’s reversible. Which means there’s no wrong way to plug in the cable.
Lightning to 30-pin Adapter.
If you have an iPad accessory that depends on the 30-pin connector, you can still connect it to your iPad mini. Simply use a Lightning to 30-pin Adapter (sold separately).
