Apple iPad Mini 2019 with A12 Bionic Chip and Apple Pencil Support

As in 2018 there were no announcement was made by Apple on iPad Mini in the Launch event and since 2015 there was no update given to iPad mini by the company, but in 2019 Apple introduced the new iPad mini in the market with major upgrades over previous generation.

The appreciation for the iPad minis was worth over a decade and people are just kept buying the iPad mini 4 not because of anything fancy because of its compact design a perfect device fits between a mobile and big screen tablet that we see on iPad pro series. After 2015 Apple has updated its mini model now in 2019, even as the rest of the iOS lineup was updated and improved over time, but it’s for sure Apple took hell lot of time in upgrading their devices.Apple iPad Mini

Apple stated in media their research over buying habit of consumer, they stated that result was surprising as people were buying the mini primarily because of its size, not because of its price. And if people are going to keep buying something, then it becomes responsibility of the company to update it over time. So there’s a new iPad mini now, updated with some of Apple’s latest tech, and starting at $399.

A great Update to iPad mini 2019 if you can bear the Aesthetics.

In 2019 iPad Mini You’re still looking at the exact same external design, which is now nearly seven years old. If you secretly replaced any previous iPad mini with the new one, there’s a chance you might not even notice the difference. All the changes to this new mini are on the inside, and they’re significant which they should be, given the amount of time since it was last refreshed.Apple iPad Mini

Apple new iPad mini comes with new 8-inch High-Resolution display and the support of Apple Pencil V1. Hope fully the Pencil support is good but it will be great that Apple Pencil V2 also gets support on it but, considering the price constraint the Apple might have not implemented it.Apple iPad Mini

It comes with Same lightning connector, as i Phones are still using the Lightning ports so it will be easy for user to not carry another charger. We were expecting Type-C USB port but on iPad mini it does not make sense, thank god it comes with 3.5mm Headphone jack hopefully that will make lot of users happy.

On the display part it features 8-inch HD display having the broad bezel all round the front, it comes with same old home button with Fingerprint scanner, there is no support for Face unlock, on the design part you will not feel any difference have the same metallic body with thick bezels.

Soo all this This thing looks exactly same what we see on previous iPad Mini then what’s new in it?

1. It supports now the Apple pencil V1.
2. CPU updated to A12 Bionic Chip most power full chip that wee on iPad pro series.
3. Improved camera
4. Stereo Speakers
5. With New CPU the whole lot of Connectivity has become more advanced.
6. High Performance CPU can help in multi-tasking and now a mini can take a hell lot of load in terms of performance.

Apple Pencil V1 Supported on iPad Mini 2019Apple Pencil V1

The iPad Mini now support Apple’s Pencil, which sells for $100. iPad Mini only works with the first-generation Pencil because that one pairs with devices via Bluetooth; unlike the $129, second-generation Pencil, which connects and charges magnetically to other iPads. Other Bluetooth styluses should also work with the iPad Mini.

The first-gen Pencil works fine with the iPad Mini. It feels almost, kind of, sort of like writing with a “real” writing instrument. Palm recognition on iPad is generally very good. Perhaps because old habits die hard, when an editor came by my desk the other day to dole out assignments, I still grabbed the nearest paper pad and ink pen. There still exists a barrier, however tiny, to opening up and scribbling in a tablet app. I tried using Pencil in Adobe Lightroom on iPad Mini to accomplish some light photo-editing, but as with other apps, the stylus will only accomplish so much.

The first-generation Pencil’s worst offense? Its charging mechanism. It must be inserted into the Lightning port along the bottom edge of the tablet and sticks out like the pointed barb of a stingray.



• It come with more Power full CPU A12 Bionic chip made on 7nm technology.
• Solid performance.
• HD Display not the retina display but still its better than before.
• 3.5mm Headphone jack.
• Buying one sends market signal that not all devices have to be gigantic (More Power in small package).
• Great Performance.


• Seven-year-old exterior design with huge bezels.
• First-gen Apple Pencil could be replaced with Apple Pencil V2.
• Lightning port instead of Type-C port.
