iPad mini advances with a Retina display and coming in November for $399

All ipad mini fans would be happy to know that gone are the days of mediocre screen as today Apple has announced the new iPad mini is getting upgraded with a new Retina display. The new screen resolution of the latest iPad mini matches that of the latest 10-inch iPads at 2048 x 1536 — and  is now powered by the same 64-bit Apple A7 chip as in the iPad Air and iPhone 5S.

The device will be available in the US in November for $399 with Wi-Fi or $529 with LTE/3G mobile data, the new mini is more expensive than its direct predecessor, but the first-gen device is being kept around as well. We can see that Apple has cut the price of the 2012 iPad mini, now costing $299 and acting as Apple’s entry-level tablet device.

Alongside the refreshed 7.9-inch iPad mini, Apple has announced colorful Smart Covers, costing $39 each, and more expansive wraparound cases that cost $79. The 2013 iPad mini will be available in either a white and silver color combo or a space gray and black pairing. There is also an addition of  a new 128GB storage option — that will set you back $699 on the Wi-Fi mini or $829 if you want an LTE or 3G mobile connection as well.
