  1. I use iPhone 13 Mini and iPad Mini 6 💛

  2. It’s great for my uses in 64 GB 5G guise for streaming, playing Spotify while linked to my amp, and for boating with Navionics

  3. I will be getting the ipad mini soon, I honestly cannot wait for it!

  4. I absolutely love this iPad. It’s funny it takes better pics than my 2023 iPhone 14 pro max with 3 cameras ? This thing rocks

  5. I only wanna get it for Church notes, Bible app and like a second phoneish.. 😀

  6. Just get a huawei foldable phone and skip this American garbage.

  7. When I traveled, I always brought a camera, 2 lenses, and an iPad Pro 11. Not wanting to carry all that in a large backpack, I now carry a small sling, or not, an iPhone, and an iPad mini for editing. Smaller set up, don’t worry about theft as much. I pad mini is more popular than most think

  8. IPad Pro battery lasts a week?? If by light use you mean 10-15mins a day then yeah maybe

  9. iPad Pro mini 👌👌

  10. im a digital artist. i use an older ipad mini, (no usbc 😢) good if youre not sure about the pro, which im upgrading to, but minis are good for note taking for students because of the size if they need something smaller.

  11. I just updated two IPADs to the new ios for IPad 16 via the same network.. So, the mini 6 was initialised first – couple of minutes later I start the IPad 5th gen (2017). The older one was done within 15minutes, the mini 6 wasn't even at 20% of downloading the update. I guess it could be that the newer one has a heavier update. I think it was 400mb for both, but don't hold my word for it. What is up with that?

  12. The 60hz screen is outdated, the minimum these days should be at least 90hz, on an ipad though the minimum should be 120hz but apple would probably charge an extra £500 just for that.

    I have the 6th gen iPad mini and I prefer it. It’s my Kindle killer and I use it mostly to read and take notes. It fits in my purse and worth every penny.

  14. Planning to buy it mostly for reading books and manga with sketching. 64gb storage is kinda enough for me

  16. I’m a pilot and I use mine for navigation and flight planning. Having the smaller screen isn’t ideal, but when you don’t have a lot of space to work with and still need to keep checklists and stuff somewhere secure, you can’t beat an iPad mini 6 on a kneeboard. I think pilots were specifically considered in the decision to redesign, too. They used touchID instead of faceID, which is super hard to use from a kneeboard (though I’d prefer both and to have a choice, but it is what it is) and Tim specifically mentioned it being strapped to the leg of a pilot in flight along with flying being in one of their ads. Honestly for that use case, at least in small planes, this thing is incredible.

    The GPS for the internet is basically necessary for ForeFlight, and you can even get good signal a few thousand feet up sometimes, and download new weather and such.

  17. I got one because my 12” iPad Pro was too big for everyday light usage but I wanted something bigger than my phone for internet browsing and video watching.
