The choice between iPad mini (2019) and iPad Air (2019) mostly comes down to screen size, screen resolution, and Smart Keyboard compatibility.
If you’re looking for a bigger alternative to your phone for watching movies, reading, gaming and editing on the go, the iPad mini (2019) is a great choice. It has a 7.9-inch LCD display, a wide colour palette and True Tone technology that automatically adjusts white balance in different light for easier viewing. But it has a higher pixel density per inch – which means that videos, images and text look sharper. And at 300g, it’s super-light to carry.
iPad Air (2019) features a higher resolution than iPad mini that shows brighter colours across its 10.5-inch LCD display and makes photo and video editing easier – particularly with its larger screen. It has a wide colour palette and True Tone colour technology just like iPad mini (2019). But the iPad Air weighs slightly more than iPad mini (464g) due to its size.
iPad mini (2019) and iPad Air (2019) have the A12 Bionic processor – smart and powerful enough to transform your gaming, augmented reality and editing experience. And the A12 Bionic chip works efficiently to make the most of the iPad mini and iPad Air’s estimated 10-hour battery life.
iPad mini (2019) and iPad Air (2019) both offer the convenience of a Lightning Connectors and a headphone jack, and they also support Apple Pencil (1st generation). Touch ID helps to keep iPad mini and iPad Air secure.
iPad Air supports the Smart Keyboard, which makes it easier to use this iPad like a laptop. You can pair iPad mini with a wireless Bluetooth keyboard.
