Apple iPad mini (2019) Wi-Fi Review:

Four years since the iPad mini 4's launch, its successor — the iPad mini (2019) — is here. It's the most “pocketable” iPad that you can buy right now, even if it'll only fit in a coat pocket. While the iPad mini now has serious processing power under its hood, this tablet is all about the form factor. When we reviewed the iPad Pro, our usage was almost completely geared towards getting work done while sitting at a desk. With the iPad mini it was the opposite.

Every time we picked up the iPad mini (2019), we immediately felt like slouching into our chair and unwinding. It became our go-to device to read something on, to listen to audiobooks, watch movies, and to play games. The iPad mini is easy to carry when commuting and is perfect for watching videos on while commuting to and from work. For a device that's perfect for casual use, it is a bit surprising that the iPad mini was basically in cold storage for years.

Not all products in Apple's impressive lineup of gadgets get refreshed frequently. Some, such as the iPhone, Apple Watch, and MacBook Pro, have been refreshed more or less annually, but there are others such as the Mac Mini, Mac Pro, and the iPad mini, which have gone for long periods without a refresh.

For the past few years the iPad launch cycle has been dominated by the iPad Air and iPad Pro series. Last year, Apple launched the iPad (2018), and it remains the most affordable iPad model in the market. This makes buying the iPad mini (2019) a slightly less straightforward decision. It has a smaller screen than the iPad (2018), but is powered by a newer and more capable processor, and costs more.

The iPad mini (2019) is available in Wi-Fi only and Wi-Fi + cellular variants, and in two storage options — 64GB and 256GB. iPad mini (2019) price in India is as follows:

  • Wi-Fi only 64GB: Rs. 34,900
  • Wi-Fi only 256GB: Rs. 48,900
  • Wi-Fi + cellular 64GB: Rs. 45,900
  • Wi-Fi + cellular 256GB: Rs. 59,900

The iPad mini 4 had launched at Rs. 28,900 for the 32GB Wi-Fi only variant. The iPad mini (2019) costs more, but that is most likely due to changes in currency exchange rates and taxes because the US price of both products was $399 at launch. It's good to see that despite this, the iPad mini (2019)'s price in India is pretty close to its US pricing.

The iPad mini (2019) also supports the first-generation Apple Pencil which is priced at Rs. 7,600. This is a nice touch for artists and those who like taking hand-written notes, but it would have been nicer to have had support for the second-generation Apple Pencil which can be charged wirelessly. That would have probably pushed prices up even more so it's easy to see why Apple decided to stick with the older Apple Pencil. The iPad Pro (2018)'s design with its flat edges also allows a natural place for the Apple Pencil to charge wirelessly, but the new iPad mini uses the same body as its predecessors, not the new style of the iPad Pros.
