Apple Unveils New iPad Mini With Retina Display [iPad Event]


The day has finally come. Apple has unveiled an iPad mini with Retina display. The second-gen model packs the new 64-bit A7 processor and the expanded LTE support in the iPad Air. Apple has also added another 128GB storage option to the Retina mini.

Color options for the new iPad mini are Space Grey and Silver, so no Gold this time. Apple has raised the price from $329 to $399, which likely has something to do with the higher expense of shipping a Retina display. Availability will begin “later in November.”

The first-gen iPad mini is still being sold, and Apple has lowered the price on that model to $299.
