Contrary to rumors, the new mini has not abandoned the proprietary Lightning connector in favor of the universal USB Type-C, as is done in older iPads. But saved 3.5 mm audio jack, which is convenient.
The tablet has two cameras. The main inherited from the previous generation is the 8-megapixel module, which can shoot video with FullHD resolution. But the front end has changed, now it’s a 7 megapixel FaceTime module.
Apple does not disclose the details of tablet autonomy. It is known that the battery capacity is 19.1 Wh. The manufacturer claims that the device can operate continuously for up to 10 hours on the Internet over a Wi-Fi network, watching videos, or listening to music.

Renowned Chinese analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (Ming-Chi Kuo) calls the new iPad mini an affordable model. It’s too early to write about the cost of this phone, but we can assume how much a mini will cost a Russian buyer. For example, at the end of 2018, two maximum modifications of the fourth generation are available for purchase, for 29.9 and 39.9 thousand rubles, respectively. We are talking about models with a 128 GB Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi + Cellular drive. A truly affordable iPad (2018) can be found at a price of 23 thousand rubles. Most likely, the younger version of the iPad mini 5 will cost slightly higher than the 9.7-inch device, but not more than 25 thousand rubles.
