Apple is unveiled their updated version of the iPad mini with Retina display on October 16th in an event hosted in Cupertino. The unveiled device? The iPad mini 3.
The specifications for the iPad mini 3 don’t vary all too much from last year’s model with the exception of the added Touch ID sensor. It has a 7.9 inch Retina display, 64 bit A7 Processor, 5 megapixel iSight Camera with 1080p HD video recording capabilities, HD FaceTime camera and classic aluminium chassis.

Available in a choice of 3 colours, silver, space grey and gold, pre-orders for the Apple iPad mini 3 start today and can expect to set you back around £319 here in the UK with the original iPad mini now starting at £199. It’s about time Apple realised lower prices are the way forward to contend with their Android competitors.
With the iPad mini 3 being near enough exactly the same as last year’s iPad mini, it wasn’t overly explored at their event and only featured briefly.
