Apple is known for excellent design and the iPad mini 4 is no stranger to this philosophy. 18% thinner than the previous iPad, the mini 4 is only 6.1mm thick and just 299 grams in weight.
The aluminium unibody construction means that this commitment to being slim doesn't sacrifice strength; you can happily put the iPad mini 4 into a clutch bag, rucksack or suitcase with your other belongings.
Part of developing the iPad mini 4 to be so svelte was to reduce the screen thickness. Previously manufactured with three separate components, the new Retina display combines the LCD, touch sensor and cover glass into one seamless item. Eliminating the gaps puts you closer to the screen for increased brightness, text sharpness, colour saturation and touch sensitivity.
The 7.9-inch display has also been coated with an anti-reflective coating which reduces glare by up to 56 percent in comparison to previous iPads.
iPad mini 4 uses the Apple-designed A8 processor. This has a second-generation 64-bit architecture and is perfect for modern applications such as 3D games or photo and video editing. The M8 coprocessor helps out here by taking on board the calculations for the 5 main sensors, so the main A8 processor can handle the more difficult calculations.
There are two excellent cameras available on the iPad mini 4. The main iSight camera has an 8-megapixel resolution with excellent precision optics. With an upgraded image signal processor and optimised software in the iOS 9 system, more detail can be captured than any previous iPad camera.
Burst mode allows for up to 10 pictures per second, with iPad able to detect smiles and blinks to suggest the best images. Video can be shot at 120 fps for super slow motion effects.
The front-facing FaceTime HD camera has also been improved, with larger pixels in the refined sensor for better low-light performance.
Once you've taken images or video, you can also edit them! Apple includes a full editing suite to adjust exposure, colour, brightness and contrast, as well as applying filters, stickers and animations.
When it comes to security, Touch ID has you covered. With Apple's own encryption based security, you can use your fingerprints as the ultimate password.
Created as part of the initial set up procedure, all you need to do is press a finger to the home button on your iPad mini 4 to unlock the screen. The sapphire crystal coating is strong and resilient, taking a perfect image and resisting damage due to wear over time.
You can use Touch ID for more than just unlocking the screen though. You can use your fingerprint to automatically sign into secure apps and other systems that require authorisation.
You can also verify your credentials to make one touch purchases in iTunes, iBooks, App Store and with Apple Pay at participating retailers.
iPad mini 4 is available as both a WiFi only model and a Cellular enhanced version. WiFi capabilities are now twice as fast as in previous iPads and the cellular option can take advantage of high speed 4G LTE networks (where available).
With 20 LTE bands in the cellular version, iPad Pro is practically global, with compatibility across many carriers in almost every developed country in the world!
With new multitasking features, iOS9 helps you get the most out of using your new iPad. Slide Over, Split View and Picture in Picture all help you multitask. Quicktype features are also available to help make typing easier with cut can paste shortcuts available right on the screen.
Slide Over lets you slide a window open in from the side with a second app. Perfect for responding to a text or email without completely leaving what you were doing.
Split View gives you a 50/50 split of two separate apps at once. Scroll around a map while looking up a hotel's website. Edit a document while having the reference open at the same time! Split View makes it easier to focus.
Picture in Picture works brilliantly for FaceTime, scaling down the screen to a small corner so you can continue the video call while working elsewhere. The same can be done while watching videos!
