Apple unveils new iPad mini with breakthrough performance in stunning new design

Yesterday's Apple Event provided a solid update across the iPhone and Apple Watch ranges. The screens get better and better on the latter and the iPhone Pro range now has Promotion, bringing dynamic refresh rates to the iPhone range. Better battery life on the iPhone is welcome too.

It was the iPad mini changes that impressed me the most. It was an odd size before, the overall size was fine, but the forehead and chin ate into a lot of the display and that's been overcome with the same design as the iPad Air.

It has the latest A15 chip, while the 'regular' iPad which was also updated gets the A13. Plenty of power, good battery and a very discrete profile. It's a really good update.
