iPad mini barely got a mention on stage last year as Apple only added Touch ID and a gold option plus 128GB models to what was in every other respect the same 7.9-inch tablet that it released in 2013. iPad mini with Retina display was renamed iPad mini 2 while the new iPad mini 3 model kept the same exact chip and specs aside from the finger print sensor. Nearly a year later the smaller tablet form factor is back with the more powerful version.

  • iPad mini 4 features same power as iPad Air 2 but in a smaller casing
  • Priced at $399
  • iPad mini 3 drops from the lineup
  • iPad mini 2 sticks around at new $269 price
  • iPad Air and iPad Air 2 keep their same prices
