The 128GB iPad mini 2 with Retina Display from Apple has a smaller form factor than its big brother, the iPad Air. The iPad mini 2 is just 7.5mm thin and weighs less than 1 pound. Its smaller form factor makes it easier to hold in one hand. The iPad mini 2 comes in a space gray finish.

The 7.9" Retina Display makes its debut on the iPad mini 2, maintaining its enormous 2048 x 1536 native resolution. At 326 pixels per inch, the Retina Display can show up to 3.1 million pixels at a time. The Retina Display is also a capacitive touchscreen so you'll be able to utilize all the multi-touch gestures of iOS 7.

While the iPad mini 2 may have a smaller form factor than the iPad Air, it still has the same dual-core A7 chip. Apple introduces the 64-bit architecture with the A7 chip, allowing for more robust and powerful apps. In fact, the A7 chip runs four times faster than the previous generation iPad mini. Also, the A7 chip supports OpenGL ES version 3.0 so the iPad mini 2 can enable detailed graphics and visual effects once only possible on desktop computers and game consoles.

The A7 chip is accompanied by the M7 coprocessor, which measures the motion of the iPad mini 2. By pulling data from the accelerometer, gyroscope and compass, it lightens the load of the A7 chip. This frees up the A7 chip to focus on processing multiple tasks and maintaining fast performance. The iPad mini 2 may have the Retina Display, but it still manages to maintain its 10-hour battery life. That's because the A7 chip isn't just more powerful, it's also more efficient.

The iPad mini 2 comes with iOS 7. Apple refined the typography, redrew every icon around a new grid system, and added a precise color palette for a minimalist design. iOS 7 also introduces features, such as the Control Center. The Control Center can be accessed by swiping up from the bottom of the screen and grants you access to the most common setting options, such as Airplane mode, Wi-Fi, Airplay and even a flashlight. iOS 7 also introduces iTunes Radio (only available in the United States), a music streaming service from Apple. You can build your own stations and listen to your favorite songs. You can also view the history of everything you've heard and added to your Wish List and then download them off iTunes.

With iCloud, you can sync your iPad mini 2 to your other iOS devices and Mac computers. Push photos, download apps and continue from where you left off in iBooks with iCloud. iCloud also offers cloud storage so you can back up your contacts, photos and important documents to Apple's cloud servers. You can restore your iPad mini 2 to a previous state using iCloud.

Retina Display
The Retina Display provides 4 times more pixels and 44% greater color saturation than the iPad 2. Within the 7.9" LED-backlit touchscreen, the 2048 x 1536 native resolution render text and images at 326 pixels per inch and a total of over 3.1 million pixels. The display also features a fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating for increased resolution during use
Dual-Core A7 Chip
Thanks to the A7 chip, apps run faster on the iPad mini 2. Games are more responsive and everything you do with the iPad mini 2 feels quicker. It's up to four times quicker than the previous-generation iPad mini 2. It also supports OpenGL ES version 3.0, enabling detailed graphics and visual effects once only possible on desktop computers and game consoles. And the A7 chip features 64-bit architecture, opening the door for even more robust and powerful apps
M7 Coprocessor
The iPad mini 2 was designed to be on the move. That's why the M7 coprocessor measures motion from your iPad mini 2 by pulling data from the accelerometer, gyroscope, and compass. This allows your apps to give you a better experience based on the movement of your iPad mini 2. It's a task that would normally fall to the A7 chip. But M7 is more efficient at it, which saves on power and opens up the A7 chip to focus on other tasks
Battery Life
The iPad mini 2 may be faster and more powerful, but it's not more power hungry. Even though it's four times faster than the previous generation iPad mini 2, it still gives you the same 10-hour battery life. That's because the A7 chip isn't just more powerful, but utilizes low voltage to be more efficient
802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi
With twice the Wi-Fi performance, thanks to two antennas and MIMO (multiple-input multiple-output) technology, the iPad mini 2 can reach download speeds of up to 300 Mbps. With dual-band (2.4GHz and 5GHz) 802.11n Wi-Fi and MIMO, that's double the data rate of the previous-generation iPad mini 2. So now when you want to download a movie, share photos or documents with AirDrop, or just browse the web, your connection is even faster than before
FaceTime HD Camera
Sometimes it's nice to put a face to the conversation. And with FaceTime video calls on the iPad mini 2, your conversations look better than before. Make a video call over Wi-Fi or cellular and see (or show) every expression on the beautiful display. Now the FaceTime HD camera features a next-generation backside illumination sensor with larger pixels, which brightens up all your FaceTime chats, selfies, and group Photo Booth shots, even in low-light situations
5-Megapixel iSight Camera
The 5-megapixel iSight camera on iPad mini 2 was designed to help you capture all of life's moments at a moment's notice. Use the Retina display as an easy viewfinder to frame the perfect shot. Quickly swipe between capturing stills or 1080p Full HD video. Every time you shoot, the image signal processor in the A7 chip works with the camera to make a ton of adjustments and deliver a great picture or video automatically
iOS 7
Apple has refined the typography, redrawn every icon around a new grid system, and added a precise color palette for a minimalist design with iOS 7. iOS 7 improves and adds features to the iPad mini 2. The Control Center is where you have access to the most common setting options like Airplane Mode, volume, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Camera, AirPlay and more. iOS 7 also introduces AirDrop, where you can share photos, videos, and contacts from any app with a Share button. iOS 7 also introduces iTunes Radio (only available in the US), which lets you build your own stations and listen to your favorite songs. You can also view the history of everything you've heard and added to your Wish List and then download them off iTunes
iCloud
iCloud functions as a wireless service for you to keep all of your iOS & Mac devices in sync. You can also backup content to iCloud and restore to a previous backup from iCloud as well
Siri
Siri lets you use your voice to send messages, schedule meetings, check the latest scores, and more. Ask Siri to do things just by talking. Siri understands what you say, knows what you mean and even talks back
AirPlay
AirPlay functions off of the wireless capabilities of the iPad mini 2 and allows you to seamlessly watch or listen to your content on your HDTV. When connected to the same wireless network, content can be controlled from the iPad mini 2 and ported through or watched on auxiliary devices

              Comments about 128GB iPad mini with Retina Display (Wi-Fi Only, Space Gray):

              My 64GB iPad 3 was getting tight for storage space, and knowing that I plan to move more of my photo processing to iPad over the coming year, I decided to upgrade to a 128GB model. After extensive side-by-side testing, I decided that the mini with Retina Display was large enough for my normal reading, photo, and productivity apps, while also being more portable and [$] cheaper than the iPad Air.I have had absolutely no regrets about the purchase - the mini handles everything I throw at it without breaking a sweat (including Adobe's new Lightroom Mobile), while being small enough to be my constant companion as I move about the house, and I barely notice it when I pack it in any of my camera bags. It's absolutely astonishing that this much performance, battery life, and display quality can be packed into a device this small and light.

                This iPad Mini with Retina Display on video mode has the stripped format of feature. I know the hardware is there on plug in ext. stereo mic to Garage Band, is fine. When I had purchased very good stereo microphone with waste of my money. After I had plugged in my ext. Stereo mic. Garage Band was good until I had opened up my Video, any ext. mic doesn't work. I have to use the built in MONO mic that I can't monitor my audio through my headphone. Apple had built this 1080p video camera for children, it's not for pro.

                      Comments about 128GB iPad mini 2 with Retina Display (Wi-Fi Only, Silver):

                      After owning an iPod Touch 4G and an iPad 2, I decided to upgrade to one iOS device, and the iPad Mini Retina was a great "merge" for me. UPGRADE FEATURE HIGHLIGHTS- 128GB (this model): More storage for apps, photos, music, videos, and video recording. For me this was a major reason.- iOS 7: My iPod Touch 4G didn't meet the system requirements for iOS 7 and I was starting to find apps at the store that required it. My only complaint is that I bought my iPod Touch in March 2011, and felt that 2.5 years was a little soon to be forced into an upgrade. However, the operating system itself has some helpful improvements, such as folders that expand to hold as many apps as you want. - Retina screen: Truly is amazing and beautifully crisp.- Siri voice recognition is very accurate and works well.- 5MP Camera allows for better photos and has enough resolution for banking apps that will handle check deposits.I looked at a bunch of cases and screen protectors and have a recommendation. If B&H has the following items, please buy the accessories from them.Apple iPad Mini with Retina Display (Apple iPad Mini 2) Screen ProtectorNEW 2014 Ultra Premium HD Versionby iSmooth - Free Lifetime Replacement Guarantee. Trust me, this kit was worth it! This screen protector had GREAT instructions and came with everything you need. I was dreading the whole thing, because I've done it once before and it's not easy to get screen protectors installed correctly without pesky dust particles getting trapped underneath. So, I wouldn't say it was easy, but this made it as easy as possible, and I did it. Just follow the instructions and do it in your bathroom. It comes with 2 protectors, so if you really mess up the first one, you have an extra. Run your shower on hot, just long enough to start fogging up the mirror and then turn it off. This really helps reduce airborne dust. I'm sure you'll do fine, but even if you mess up both protectors, they say that they'll send you a new one. Thankfully, I got it right on the first try, and the sticky strips are the key. Scotch tape will also work to remove dust trapped on the screen OR the underside of the screen protector.Snugg Apple iPad Mini & iPad Mini 2 Retina Leather CaseFlip Stand Cover with Elastic Hand Strap, Stylus Loop and Premium Nubu. The only "IF" about this case would be that it could offer a little better corner protection. However, overall, out of everything I looked at, I liked this case the best. If you need to use your iPad on a construction site, get something else, but for decent style, funtionality and protection, this was my favorite. It looks, smells and feels like real leather, but I find it hard to believe that it could be for the price. Bear Motion and Otterbox also make some nice cases.TECH SUPPORTI wish that tech support was available for more than 90 days without having to buy an AppleCare support plan, but when I had an iCloud restore question, "Justin" couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. I can't properly compare the iPad Mini Retina (released Nov. 2013) to Google Nexus or Kindle Fire because I haven't used the other two. I did research them and feature wise I just didn't find what I was looking for as of December 2013. However, I like the Android OS and competition remains fierce between Apple, Google and Amazon. So, it will be interesting to see what develops in the future.
