At a time when the tablets market was going steep downhill, Apple had launched Apple iPad Mini 5. Also known as Apple iPad Mini 2019, the tablet was a value-oriented package. And the good thing is that the device is now available for purchase in Nepal. The handset has arrived in Nepal through the authorized channel. So you can get the genuine product along with a warranty.
Apple iPad Mini 5 Overview:
On the display front, the iPad Mini 5 comes with a 7.9-inch retina display. The screen on this device comes in 4:3 aspect ratio packing 324 pixels in every inch. This makes the iPad Mini 2019 the sharpest iPad in Apple’s history. Apart from that, Apple claims that they have implemented an advanced Retina display on this iPad Mini 5. The tab also comes with True Tone technology and wide color (DCI-P3 Color gamut) support. The screen here is also said to be significantly bright than the earlier model.
Performance has always been a strong suit of the iPads. And this iPad is no exception.
