iPad Mini 3 Review
Apple Small Tablet
iPad mini 3 comes with our breakthrough Touch ID technology. It gives you an unprecedented level of security because it uses nature’s most perfect password: your fingerprint. It comes with two great cameras that provide everything you need to take amazing photos and videos and make crisp, clear FaceTime calls.
Blink and you might have missed it. The iPad mini 3 made an especially quiet debut at Apple’s latest event, a mere footnote compared with the iPad Air 2. With the dust now settled, it’s easy to see why—aside from a gold paintjob, Touch ID sensor, and Apple SIM, the $399 16GB mini 3 receives no substantive upgrades over last year’s iPad mini 2$306.99 at Amazon, which gets a sizeable price cut to $299 for 16GB. One hundred bucks is a lot of money to shell out for what amounts to a small convenience or outsized vanity. New tablet buyers should snag the discounted-and-renamed iPad mini 2, one of our top picks for small-screen tablets, while existing mini 2 owners have very little reason to upgrade.

Design, Touch ID, and Apple SIM
The iPad mini 3 is physically identical to its predecessor (7.87 by 5.3 by 0.29 inches and 11.68 ounces), save for the accent ring surrounding the new Touch ID button. There’s also a new gold colorway to go along with the existing silver and space gray options. The gold here matches the gold finishes of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. It’s no longer the thinnest or lightest tablet in town—that honor belongs to the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4Best Price at Amazon—but it’s still arguably the best-looking and best-built small tablet.
