The 2021 iPad Mini was a device loved by many for its smaller, more portable form factor, but it went without an update for quite some time. Apple has since overhauled it, and the latest model is more capable than ever without sacrificing portability.

It’s not the tablet you’ll necessarily grab to replace your laptop, but it doesn’t have to be. It offers a more portable version of iPadOS and shares the A15 Bionic chip found in the latest iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus models, so it’s very powerful. In fact, the 2021 iPad Mini is unlikely to be affected by the new M1-specific features it lacks in iPadOS 16.
