The Apple iPad mini was not well received because people were expecting something different. They were expecting a piece that advanced the normal iPad with newer technology and software. Instead, what they got was the iPad 2 but in a much smaller form. In hindsight, this is perfectly reasonable, and there was not really any announcement that it would be the equivalent of the iPad 5 or anything. So, now that the public has suitably lowered its expectations, what can it expect with the new Apple iPad mini 2?
This is true, and yet the change in thickness and weight is so small that it is not noticeable. It is still a very thin device to the point of feeling like you are holding a slice of salmon (an exaggeration, but you get the idea). It is small; the tablet’s almost square shape makes it feel more like a tablet and not like a mobile phone. The weight has gone up by 29g, which is hardly anything, and the thickness has gone up by 0.3mm, which is even less than nothing.
It has a 23.8-watt rechargeable lithium-polymer battery, which is pretty big, even for a small tablet device.
This means that you can expect a rather good battery life and a lot of talk time to go with it. The old iPad mini used to use around 16 watts per hour, but the newer one uses around 24 watts per hour. This is supposedly because the
phone’s battery has to keep up with its processing power. Apple have come out and said that if you use the device continuously, then you will get ten hours out of it before you need a recharge. This means that intermittent users will
have to recharge roughly every two days.
circumstances when it comes to processing. There is little it cannot handle at this point.
