Highly Capable, Ultra-Portable: Apple iPad mini 256GB WiFi+Cellular in Starlight

Keep the power of a full-sized device in the palm of your hand with the fastest iPad mini yet. First announced at the 2021 September Apple Event, the latest tiny tablet from the California-based company promises faster processing thanks to its A15 chip and speedy Neural Engine. Meanwhile, two updated cameras (one rear and one front) make this tablet optimized for video calling with the Center Stage feature. Center Stage helps to situate users directly in the middle of the 12MP Ultra Wide front camera. As you shift, the camera moves to keep you right in the middle of the action. And if others join you in frame, the lens adjusts to make sure you'll both be visible, too. That makes this device perfect for those who work from home as well as students with online classes—or anyone who needs to communicate with loved ones. Show off your exciting new tech with your first video call.

Powerful Processing with the A15 Bionic Chip

Each operation within the iPad mini is powered by the fast A15 Processor. With a more powerful 5-core GPU, this device can load graphics-heavy material up to 80% faster than its competitors and predecessors. Whether you're working on multiple pieces in photo editing software or playing a graphics-heavy game from the App Store, that extra power will come in handy more often than you might think. The new Neural Engine works to fuel up to two times faster machine learning, all while the 6-core CPU manages to move as far as 40% quicker than the competition. Whether you're working on creative projects, finishing up schoolwork or streaming content on the go, you'll be able to do it all quicker than ever thanks to this bionic chip.
