Getting a tablet is a must for working and staying entertained on the go. Because there are so many options and brands available on the market, I ended up searching for months for the right one. One non-negotiable for me was size, because I wanted a tablet that would measure less than 10 inches. While this isn’t a deal breaker for a lot of people, it’s especially convenient if you do a lot of online work.
As if luck would have it, the right release for me was announced rather recently: the iPad Mini 6. It came at a great deal, but it also came with the best specs for its price. Here’s why I ended up falling in love with the iPad Mini 2021!
User-Friendly, Crisp Display
It’s tempting to dismiss an iPad Mini as simply a smaller version of the iPad. However, there are very key differences in its design. I got the silvery-gold Starlight 256gb WiFi + Cellular, because I found it was the right amount of space for my budget and needs.
Because more space has been allocated to nearly fill out the 8.3-inch display, viewing and accessing things is excellent despite the small size. It also has 326 ppi, displaying text and graphics so clearly that reading and scrolling was easy on the eyes.
Greater Versatility Too – It’s More Than Just A Smaller iPad!
The speakers have great sound quality for the size, and unlike other Apple gadgets, the iPad Mini 6 is USB-C compatible. This makes it more versatile than other iOS devices, because many of them only have a Lightning port.
Because of its redesigned, flattened edges, an Apple Pencil can comfortable stick magnetically to the sides. No need to fumble for this accessory or leave it at home! But most importantly, it packs processing power as well. The iPad Mini 2021 uses the new Apple A15 Bionic chipset inside, operating pretty much any app quite speedily!
iPad Mini 6 was A Steal!
It wasn’t available in the Philippines when I was planning to order, but I couldn’t wait as I had saved for months. I ended up ordering online directly from the Apple Store. Luckily, BDO Amex had a 10.10 cashback promo, where I got 10% off or up to P5,000 rebate for a minimum single-receipt spend of P3,000. That was my go-signal to buy this coveted gadget!
The price displayed for the iPad Mini 6 includes all duties and taxes, and comes with free delivery. I asked Customer Service to make sure that I won’t get charged unexpected taxes when it finally arrives.
The iPad Mini 2021 is definitely a steal for all its features – and it outperforms many larger models too! I was lucky that my BDO-issued Amex Card was there. The big discount helped me add to cart and check out this nifty new tablet.
I anticipate getting a lot more mileage out of this over the coming months. If you need something highly portable but powerful and user-friendly, I can’t recommend this tablet enough!
