The fifth-generation iPad Mini (stylized and marketed as iPad mini[1] and colloquially referred to as iPad mini 5[2]) is a tablet computer in the iPad Mini line, designed, developed and marketed by Apple Inc. Announced in a press release along with the iPad Air (2019) on March 18, 2019,[3] it was the first iPad Mini that was released without a live press event. Its predecessor, the iPad Mini 4, was discontinued on the same day.[4]

It shares a similar design to the iPad Mini 4 and features the Apple A12 Bionic chip, 64 or 256GB storage, a more modernly upgraded 7.9-inch Retina Display with support for Apple Pencil (1st Generation), True Tone display and Bluetooth 5.0. iFixit's teardown shows this iPad mini is equipped with an upgraded 3GB of LPDDR4X RAM, the same as the iPhone XR.[5]

Features[edit]

Hardware[edit]

The iPad Mini (2019) features the upgraded front camera system of the 7MP (1080p) camera used since 2016 starting with the iPhone 7 and continued with the iPhone XS, while the rear camera system continues with the older 8MP (1080p) used since the iPad Air 2 in 2014, so it cannot record in 4K.[6] The iPad Mini uses a Lightning port and has a headphone jack. It has a True Tone display, which allows the LCD to adapt to ambient lighting to change its color and intensity in different environments.[7]

The Apple A12 Bionic chip powering the iPad Mini (2019) has a 66% higher clock speed than its predecessor, which had a 1.5GHz dual-core processor; (the Apple A8 in the previous generation was clocked higher than in the iPhone 6)[8]. The Apple A12 Bionic chip has a 2.49GHz six-core processor.[9] The iPad Mini (2019) is 3x Faster than iPad Mini 4, and does support Apple Pencil (1st Generation).
