Lighter and thinner than any of its predecessors, iPad mini 4 puts everything you love about iPad into a sleeker, slimmer design. And its gorgeous Retina display is incredibly immersive whether you’re watching, shopping, playing or working. Now you’ll have even more reasons to take it with you on your next adventure.
Designed to ﬁt anywhere. And go anywhere.
iPad mini 4 is so thin it can fit into just about any carry-on, handbag or backpack. It’s the perfect size for everything from entertaining the kids on a long plane ride home to identifying constellations from your camp site.
Ingenuity makes it thin. Its unibody makes it strong.
iPad mini 4 has never been more convenient or portable. And even though it’s only 6.1 millimetres thin, it doesn’t sacrifice strength. Its durable aluminium unibody offers seamless beauty that will last for years.
Not just a thinner display. A beautiful display.
The displays on previous generations of iPad mini were constructed with three separate components. With iPad mini 4, we combined those three layers into one. This eliminates gaps between layers, along with the internal reflectance caused by those gaps. The redesigned display also delivers greater colour saturation than before — 44 per cent more. The fully laminated design combined with deeper colour saturation produces greater contrast and lifelike colours for sharper text and even more vivid images.

Your content, at your fingertips.
The LCD layer is now closer than ever to your eyes (and your ﬁngers), so when you touch the screen it truly feels as if you’re touching your content. We’ve also improved the sensitivity of the screen, so it tracks your finger even more accurately, especially when you make quick gestures. Which means everything you do — playing games, surfing the web, enjoying photos and videos — feels more natural, immediate and immersive.
Bright and beautiful. Even if it’s bright outside.
iPad mini 4 features a custom-designed antireflective coating that reduces glare by 56 per cent compared with previous iPad displays. In virtually any kind of environment — oﬃces, classrooms, the great outdoors — everything is clearer and more readable.
No less impressive on the outside.
Something that performs this beautifully deserves an equally beautiful finish. iPad mini 4 comes in silver, space grey and gold. So it’s sure to stand out no matter where you take it.
Designed to have a big impact on the world. Not the environment.
We’re always thinking about the impact our products have on the world. And we know that impact continues after the end of a product’s useful life. That’s why nearly every Apple product is made from highly recyclable materials like aluminium, and why we go to great lengths to exclude harmful toxins from our components.
iPad mini 4 is a perfect example. The aluminium enclosure is highly recyclable. And every iPad mini is free of brominated flame retardants (BFRs) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC). In fact, Apple has one of the strictest BFR-free and PVC-free standards in the industry. And we expect the same from our suppliers. So we actually disassemble our products into individual components and materials in our Cupertino lab. Then we test those components using a variety of methods, including X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy and ion chromatography. We do this to ensure that every product we make meets our environmental standards.
