The 32GB iPad mini 2 with Retina Display from Apple has a smaller form factor than its big brother the iPad Air. The iPad mini 2 is just 7.5mm thin and weighs less than 1 pound. Its smaller form factor makes it easier to hold in one hand. The iPad mini 2 comes in a silver finish.
The 7.9 Retina Display makes its debut on the iPad mini 2 maintaining its enormous 2048 x 1536 native resolution. At 326 pixels per inch the Retina Display can show up to 3.1 million pixels at a time. The Retina Display is also a capacitive touchscreen so youll be able to utilize all the multi-touch gestures of iOS 7.
While the iPad mini 2 may have a smaller form factor than the iPad Air it still has the same dual-core A7 chip. Apple introduces the 64-bit architecture with the A7 chip allowing for more robust and powerful apps. In fact the A7 chip runs four times faster than the previous generation iPad mini. Also the A7 chip supports OpenGL ES version 3.0 so the iPad mini 2 can enable detailed graphics and visual effects once only possible on desktop computers and game consoles.
The A7 chip is accompanied by the M7 coprocessor which measures the motion of the iPad mini 2. By pulling data from the accelerometer gyroscope and compass it lightens the load of the A7 chip. This frees up the A7 chip to focus on processing multiple tasks and maintaining fast performance. The iPad mini 2 may have the Retina Display but it still manages to maintain its 10-hour battery life. Thats because the A7 chip isnt just more powerful its also more efficient.
With iCloud you can sync your iPad mini 2 to your other iOS devices and Mac computers. Push photos download apps and continue from where you left off in iBooks with iCloud. iCloud also offers cloud storage so you can back up your contacts photos and important documents to Apples cloud servers. You can restore your iPad mini 2 to a previous state using iCloud.
