iPad Mini 3

The Apple iPad Mini 3 is the third generation of Apple's iPad Mini tablet computer and the successor to 2013's iPad Mini with Retina Display. The Apple iPad Mini 3 debuted in October 2014 at the same time as the iPad Air 2, which serves as the successor to the iPad Air.

The iPad Mini 3 retains the screen size and 2048x1536 resolution of the iPad Mini with Retina Display, which both offer a pixel density of 324ppi (pixels-per-inch) on a 7.9" display.

New Features in the iPad Mini 3

As far as new features, the main change in the iPad Mini 3 is the addition of a Touch ID fingerprint sensor like those found in newer iPhone 5 and 6 models. The only other changes are built-in support for the Apple iOS 8 mobile OS and a new gold color option, which joins the slate gray and white color options.

Prices for the iPad Mini 3 are $100 less than iPad Air 2 prices, starting at $399 for the 16GB Wi-Fi edition. The 64GB and 128GB editions are available for $499 and $599, respectively. As with previous iPad releases, versions with cellular capabilities can be purchased for an additional $130.
