Conclusion

Apple iPad mini 3

Apple iPad mini 3

If you can live without Touch ID and are happy with the traditional silver and space gray external body colors offered in earlier incarnations, there’s little reason to recommend ditching your iPad mini 2 in favor of the iPad mini 3. The former remains the most affordable choice in the high performing Apple mini market and is a full $100 cheaper than the mini 3, whose only significant improvements are the aforementioned Touch ID capability and a gold body option.

Pros:

  • Touch ID
  • Gold color option
  • Improved 64GB and 128GB storage
  • Apple SIM lets you jump between cellular carriers

Cons:

  • No improvement in display or camera
  • $100 more expensive than its predecessor, which is near the same device
  • No improvement in weight
