iPad Mini with Retina Display

When Apple's iPad Mini debuted in late 2012, one of its few shortcomings according to critics was the lack of a crystal-clear Retina display like the displays used in newer versions of the iPhone and iPad.

A new iPad Mini with Retina Display (aka the "iPad Mini 2") was announced by Apple on October 22, 2013, as an updated and upgraded version of the original iPad Mini.The iPad Mini with Retina Display increases the resolution from the original's 1024x768 to a resolution of 2048x1536, for a pixel density of 324ppi (pixels-per-inch) on a 7.9" display. For comparison, the display in the iPhone 5 delivers 326 pixels-per-inch.

The iPad Mini with Retina Display is currently scheduled to become available for purchase in November 2013. The iPad Mini with Retina Display will also include a 64-bit A7 processor to help handle the increased resolution and iOS 7 as its mobile operating system. Pricing for the new iPad Mini starts at $399, a sum that is $70 higher than the starting price for the previous generation iPad Mini.
