iPad Mini 3 Arrived with a New Color, a Touch ID, and an Apple Pay, One Apple Rumor Finally Ends, but is it iPad Mini 3 or 2?
The iPad Mini 3 rumor finally ended when Apple unveiled the mini tablet on October 16. The new Mini boasted new features, including its Touch ID fingerprint sensor and its new color variant: Gold. So, what's new with the Mini 3?
Actually, not much is new with Mini 3. It's a lot like its predecessor Mini 2. First thing, it looks a lot similar. Second thing, it performs so much alike. Third, it has the same screen and camera. Exclude the Gold color variant, the Touch ID, and the Apple Pay, and you pretty much have two similar iPads Minis with different digits on their names.
We were expecting, at least, that the new Mini will have the Apple's latest A8 processor or the A8x processor, but no. It still got its old A7 chip with Retina display. Yet, let's not underestimate the Touch ID. It's one of the best features that Apple came up with, and now, it's not used only to lock your iPad device. It now allows users to log-in to apps like Evernote, 1Password, and Mint using the feature plus an iOS 8. Soon enough, the iOS 8.1 will come out, and this will allow users to use the Apple Pay feature that the company is recently boasting. Using Apple Pay, you can shop online on a different security level than before.
As for the price, it's also similar to the starting price of its previous Mini 2, and priced at $400. Now, the Mini 2 is priced at $300 with a 16GB or a 32GB of storage. Is the additional $100 worth the upgrade? You tell me.
As for the release date, the company said that the new Mini is open for pre-orders starting October 17, but with no exact release date mentioned.
The Mini 3 will be available in 16GB, 64GB, and in 128GB versions.
