The 2021 iPad mini is one of the best iPads you can get right now. In our iPad mini 6 review, we had almost nothing but praise for this excellent tablet. It has all of the power of the iPad Air but in a more portable package.
Compared to the previous generation of the iPad mini, the 2021 version has a new edge-to-edge screen with a Liquid Retina display. It also has a more powerful CPU, the same A15 Bionic chip that powers the iPhone 13. Even though this iPad is small, it's powerful. You'll be able to browse and stream to your heart's content and even enjoy some great games.
While this iPad isn't compatible with the Magic Keyboard, the iPad mini 6 is still great to use with the Apple Pencil 2. With fast input speed and low latency, writing and drawing on the iPad mini feels excellent. All in all, this is a fast, convenient tablet that just works, so you can't go wrong with the iPad mini 6.
