Along with the new iPad Air 2, Apple has also released iPad mini 3. The third generation iPad mini is not quite the device we were hoping it would be. Unlike its bigger brother the mini has not received a thinner design or upgraded specifications. However the new model has received some notable new changes that includes addition of the Touch ID and a new gold color option. Another change that we are sure you will love is the introduction of the 128GB model of iPad mini 3.
With Touch ID iOS users will get a more secure and quicker way of unlocking their iPad. They will also be able to make App Store purchases, and now with iOS 8 third-party applications will be able to take advantage of the fingerprint scanner technology just like they can on the newer iPhones.
Specifications of iPad mini 3 include A7 processor with M7 motion coprocessor, 5-megapixel iSight Camera, Facetime HD camera, Retina Display screen with 2048 x 1536 resolution, Touch ID fingerprint scanner, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, LTE 4 technology, 16GB, 64GB and 128GB storage options, and more.
iPad mini 3 that comes in gold, silver and space grey is available for $399, $499 and $599 for 16GB, 64GB and 128GB models respectively. For cellular models, the device can be yours for $529, $629 and $729 in the same orders.
In addition to iPad mini 3 Apple is also selling iPad mini 2 and the original iPad mini. iPad mini 2 is selling at $299 and $399 for 16GB and 32GB models.
