We know the iPad Mini 3rd generation
has just been realised but as you'll read in our review it's not that much different from last year's installment so we'd still go the cheaper iPad Mini 2.
The latest generation 7.9-inch Apple tablet is an expensive investment and it's not exactly built to be thrown all over the place. If you invest in a decent tough case like the iSpeck iGuy case
for instance, the latest operating system, iOS 7 has introduced a host of new parental features that actually make the iPad Mini more suitable to hand over to your kids.
You will be able to restrict the Safari web browser from showing adult content and the ability to install apps. Additionally, you can disable access to explicit content if you don’t want them to listen to music, podcasts with rude words or more adult-themed TV shows.
With access to the App Store there’s a wealth of child-friendly games, apps and ebooks to buy and download. If you can afford to spend a little more, the iPad Mini is a tablet both parents and children can use, though it's probably better suited to slightly older children. Price
