The iPad mini 3 wasn’t a huge upgrade from its predecessor, offering just one new reason to buy: Touch ID. (Oh, and it came in gold.)
But rumor has it the iPad mini 4 will take design cues from the iPad Air 2. Fans of the smaller-sized tablets could be persuaded to splurge on a slimmer mini with upgraded internals, but we’ll see if word on the street (er, the Internet) proves true. Here’s what you need to know about what the iPad mini 4 has in store.
What’s the latest?
iOS 9 is jampacked with awesome multitasking tools that will finally make the iPad the perfect device for on-the-go work. But one of the next-gen OS’s best features, the side-by-side Split View, only works with the iPad Air 2—for now. Some code-digging by developer Hamza Sood (and reported by 9to5Mac) revealed that the iPad mini 4 might be powerful enough to handle Split View, too.
