The Apple iPad Mini 16GB with Wi-Fi (Silver) is thin and light. With a new A7 chip, advanced wireless and powerful apps - all beautifully integrated with iOS 7 - iPad mini with Retina display lets you do more than you ever imagined. This Apple 16GB iPad Mini features retina display that has over 3.1 million pixels - a million more than an HDTV. That's a 2048-by-1536 resolution, four times the resolution of the previous-generation iPad mini. In fact, the pixels are so close together, your eyes can't distinguish them. So photos and videos show incredible detail and text is razor sharp. Because the best pixels are the ones you never see. It's just 0.29 inch thin and weighs less than three-quarters of a pound. So while you can do even more, you won't feel like you're holding any more.
The new Apple-designed A7 chip brings 64-bit desktop-class architecture to iPad. The A7 chip takes iPad to new heights of power and speed. Thanks to the A7 chip, apps run faster. Games are more responsive. And everything you do with iPad mini feels quicker, because it is quicker. Up to four times as quick, in fact. It also supports OpenGL ES version 3.0, enabling detailed graphics and visual effects once possible only on desktop computers and game consoles. And the A7 chip features 64-bit architecture, opening the door for even more robust and powerful apps. Which means even more possibilities for what you can do with iPad mini.
iPad mini was designed to be on the move. That's why the M7 coprocessor makes so much sense. It measures motion from your iPad mini by pulling data from the accelerometer, gyroscope and compass. So your apps can give you a better experience based on the movement of your iPad mini. It's a task that would normally fall to the A7 chip. But M7 is more efficient at it, which saves on power.
The Apple iPad Mini gives you the incredible 10-hour battery life. That's because the A7 chip isn't just more powerful, it's also more efficient. So no matter where you go with iPad Mini, you'll have the battery power to go even further.
iPad mini gives you up to twice the Wi-Fi performance thanks to two antennas and MIMO (multiple-input multiple-output) technology. With dual-band (2.4GHz and 5GHz) 802.11n Wi-Fi and MIMO, download speeds can reach up to 300 Mbps - double the data rate of the previous-generation iPad mini. So now when you want to download a movie, share photos or documents with AirDrop, or just browse the web, your connection is even faster than before.
