The iPad Mini of my dreams

Apple actually did it, a redesigned version of my favourite iPad – the Mini.

Here are some of the updates that I love about this model

  • USB-C
  • 8.3″ display
  • Keeps TouchID
  • Supports Apple Pencil 2, with the addition of being able to charge on the side like the Pro
  • Updated camera
  • Flat sided design

I’d seen the rumours but wasn’t sure the Mini sold in the numbers to warrant attention but thankfully we got it.

With the introduction of the MacBook Air in my workflow the iPad Mini has gotten more use than ever for me. It feels to me like the perfect version of what the product is – a digital notebook I can take anywhere.

It goes without saying that I ordered one immediately, 256GB in space grey (Apple removed silver this year).
