The new iPad mini uses the A12 Bionic chip, which is the same processor from the latest iPhone Xs. Apple claims it delivers three times the performance and nine times faster graphics. The advanced Retina display with True Tone technology and wide color support is 25 percent brighter and has the highest pixel density of any iPad, delivering an immersive visual experience in any setting.
