Apple introduced a new larger iPad during its big event on Wednesday, but it also quickly unveiled a new version of the smaller, 7.9-inch iPad mini, which will be dubbed the iPad mini 4.
Apple didn’t spend much time discussing the iPad mini 4 other than to show off its price and to say that it packs the power of the iPad Air 2.
The iPad mini 4 will cost $399 for the 16GB storage model, which is the same price as the previous iPad mini 3 model.
Interestingly, the iPad mini 3 has now disappeared from Apple’s product line up, at least according to the chart that Apple showed on stage. Meanwhile, the iPad mini 2 will now be available for $269, which is $30 less than its previous $299 price tag.
According to Apple’s updated iPad product page, the iPad mini 4 will feature the A8 second-generation chip with 64-bit architecture and the M8 motion coprocessor for graphics (by comparison the iPad mini 2 features the older A7 and M7 chip combo). And it offers an 8MP camera, as opposed to the mini 2’s 5MP camera.
