NCHL

The iPad Mini 2021 is not at all like older iPad minis and you’ll shortly know why. It was introduced by Apple on September 2021. This tablet runs on the hefty A15 chip and now has a bigger display. iPad mini 6 is easier to use than bigger iPads. Although, it runs the same software (now iPadOS 15.0.1) and has the same capabilities.

Overview

As mentioned, the iPad mini 6 marks a change in focus for Apple’s small-screen tablet, going from entry-level tablet to premium powerhouse, with a redesign to match. The iPad mini has been a long-time favorite among fans, and after a period devoid of meaningful updates, the small-screen tablet has finally got the love and attention it deserves. Sporting a reinvigorated design similar to that of the rest of the premium iPad collection, and performance to match, the sixth-gen iPad mini is better looking and more capable than ever. Differences in this version: You lose that home button, but you have to let it go because it improves the bezel of the screen!

Plus, the ability to carry it around in a large pocket is also a big win for portability.

Design and Display

iPad mini 6 weights 293g which is considered quite lightweight.

The iPad Mini 6 (or sixth-generation) is modelled after the latest iPad Air. It looks modern, with a screen that pushes closer to the edges and no home button in sight. The larger display (8.3-inch versus 7.9-inch) fits inside a very similar-sized body. The 60Hz LCD here is perfectly fine. It hits around 450 nits of brightness. But, when compared to OLED, the colors just don’t punch as hard and blacks tend to look more grey.

The display on the iPad Mini 6 is new but not necessarily in terms of the display technology or quality. The rectangular display from the older iPad Mini has been replaced by an IPS LCD Liquid Retina display that curves around the edges. The pixel density is quite good too.

What is Jelly Scrolling Behavior?

Influence of iPad mini 6 on Everyday stuffs to Make our Life Better

1. Note Taking

One of the main reason why students choose iPad over other tablets is due to the note taking uniqueness on it. This is a powerful device for note-taking. Apple Pencil tracking is extremely accurate with no palm rejection. The only downside with the new mini is that it doesn’t have the 120 Hz display so it might feel like the pencil ink is lagging a bit.

2. Art

The display is laminated so there’s no gap between the pen tip and the line on the screen. There’s no parallax, no misalignment. As mentioned, Apple Pencil tracking is extremely accurate. The Apple Pencil can snap to the side of the tablet for Bluetooth pairing and charging. You don’t have to worry about battery life since the Apple Pencil is always attached by the side.

From an Artist’s view; “Tilt and pressure sensitivity works greatPalm rejection is flawless with apps that allow only pen input for drawing.”

3. Gaming

The iPad Mini 6 is packed with gaming-focused hardware and software features. These are surely going to be difficult to beat. Tablets are still finding their feet in a handheld world dominated by the Nintendo Switch, mobile phone and others. It provides you with a great grip.

iPadOS 15 with a new gamepad overlay open to use by any game developer using the App Store. This feature will have two control zones placed along the horizontal edge of the screen. Apple building such a feature directly into its OS means things are starting to get serious. 

4. Netflix

Are you likely to be holding the device most of the time while watching content or setting it down somewhere? With iPad mini 6 you have both options, the iPad cover will get you a good hold. While the grip of mini 6 is okay in itself too.
