iPad mini was designed to be a concentration, rather than a reduction, of iPad. It’s small. But when you use it, it doesn’t feel small. In addition to the Retina display, we packed in a tremendous amount of power and capability. And yet iPad mini remains the perfect mini size. That’s because we engineered its components to be as thin and light as possible. It feels like an iPad in every way — only it’s mini. iPad mini 3 comes with our breakthrough Touch ID technology. It gives you an unprecedented level of security because it uses nature’s most perfect password: your fingerprint. So with just one touch, you can instantly unlock your iPad mini. But Touch ID goes beyond that. You can also make secure purchases in iTunes, iBooks, and the App Store. And with Apple Pay, you can unlock an entire world of online shopping that’s fast, convenient, and secure. FaceTime HD camera Sometimes it’s nice to put a face to the conversation. And with FaceTime video calls on iPad mini, your conversations have never looked better. Make a video call over Wi-Fi or cellular and see (or show) every expression on the beautiful Retina display. The FaceTime HD camera in iPad mini ensures that all your FaceTime chats, selfies, and group Photo Booth shots are always crisp and clear, even in low-light situations. You can even use it to take videos of yourself. iSight camera We think about what goes into a great shot so you don’t have to. The 5?megapixel iSight camera on iPad mini was designed to help you capture all of life’s moments at a moment’s notice. Use the Retina display as an easy viewfinder to frame the perfect shot. And quickly swipe between modes including Panorama and Time-lapse to capture stills or video. Every time you shoot, the image signal processor in the A7 chip works with the camera to make adjustments and deliver a great picture or video — automatically. You don’t have to think about anything other than who you’re going to share the moment with.
