IPad mini 5 Review Roundup: The Best ‘Mini’ Tablet Around

The only downside to using Apple Pencil on the new iPad mini is its smaller screen.

Not only does the new iPad Air have a larger display with over half a million more pixels than the previous generation, but it also "delivers a 70 percent boost in performance and twice the graphics capability" thanks to an A12 Bionic chip. Apple iPad: 9.7-inch IPS display with 2048x1536 pixels and 264ppi.

The number of tablets that can use the Apple Pencil expanded with the debut of the iPad Air 3 and iPad mini 5.

For a while now I've been advocating for the idea that the iPhone should support the Apple Pencil, so it could be used as a sketchbook or notepad.

The publication rightly sums it up by saying that the only reason to buy the iPad mini is its size.

This is still the most inelegant charging solution ever for a stylus.

The new Retina Display might not have ProMotion but it is pretty good as well. From its sizable forehead and chin (complete with physical home button and Touch ID sensor) to its headphone jack and Lightning connector, the new iPad mini looks exactly like the old one.

It's brighter and supports a wider color gamut, and it has Apple's True Tone technology, which automatically shifts the display tone to match the environment around you. This isn't an issue unique to the mini; the new Air looks just like the 10.5-inch Pro.

If you already had an iPad mini 4 and thought you could upgrade to the iPad mini 5 and use your existing cases, you are going to be disappointed. I think this line from the review perfectly sums everything up about the iPad mini. Reading from apps while holding the iPad mini in vertical orientation in one hand was easy and pleasant. It's very good and I'm glad Apple updated it. Old iPad mini cases and covers and keyboards should work fine with this device, provided they were designed for the iPad mini 4. I can't verify this increase, but I can say 3D games run great on the iPad mini.
