Apple’s iPad lineup has a few recent additions: the 10.5-inch iPad Air and the new 7.9-inch iPad Mini. Both are basically the same iPad in two different sizes, with slightly different prices. I’ve been using the updated Mini for a couple of weeks, and it’s not always a perfect fit for my needs.
But the idea of a small iPad isn’t crazy. Neither is choosing this iPad Mini in particular. In fact, it has some advantages you might want to consider. They’ve become even clearer after more time with the tablet. These are my favorite features.
