pickApple’s iPad mini 3 is one of two new tablets launched last week at a special event in Cupertino, and it is definitely the one that got the least attention from Apple’s product development team over the past year. The iPad Air 2 has an all-new processor, new screen manufacturing tech, a new camera, and more. The iPad mini 3, by contrast, gains just Touch ID, and a new gold finish for the aluminum shell. Apple has left everything else the same, creating a specs gulf between the two iPad lines where there wasn’t one last year. As a result, the iPad mini is no longer my top pick for a tablet (that’s now the iPad Air 2), but that doesn’t mean it isn’t a great device, taken on its own merits.
