Best 7-inch tablet overallDespite the late Steve Jobs' lack of love for 7-inch tablets, Apple decided to go smaller anyway and unleashed the iPad mini in November 2013. Apple has now updated its smaller slate with a Retina display and bump up in the power department.
It runs on the same 64-bit A7 CPU found inside the iPhone 5S and has a quad-core GPU to handle iPad games like Infinity Blade 3 with ease. Other notable specs include a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, FaceTime HD camera, 4G connectivity and it manages an impressive 9-10 hour battery life.
It's more expensive than the last mini but with the same gorgeous design and great performance it's every bit worth spending a bit more on.
