- Buy the Apple iPad Mini for $359 ($40 off) at Walmart
It packs a 7.9-inch Retina Display, an A12 Bionic chip, Touch ID, and 64GB of storage. The one thing we don't like about the new iPad Mini is that it sports the same dated, big-bezel design of the iPad mini 4. It also has the same Lightning port, rather than adopting USB-C connectivity like the new iPad Pro.
On a positive note, the new iPad mini 5's A12 Bionic chip enabled it to juggle multiple apps simultaneously in our lab. We also enjoyed fluid gameplay while playing Injustice 2. Battery-wise, the iPad Mini 5's built-in rechargeable power source went beyond expectations. Although Apple promises up to 10 hours of runtime, in our Laptop Mag battery test, it endured at 12 hours and 40 minutes.
In a nutshell, the iPad Mini 5 is the king among small tablets.
