The iPad Mini 2 is the first generation of Apple devices to feature a 64-bit processor, for better performance. The second iPad Mini offers a high-resolution Retina display, and is even thinner and lighter than its predecessor. It is identical to the iPad Air in every way but screen size. For those looking for a portable, powerful device, the iPad Mini 2 is a good bet.

Connectivity and Battery
I purchased Ipad mini with retina display from eHaat. The product got delivered on time but when i opened the box, it seemed that box had been opened earlier and then again packed which is not expected from the seller. When i opened the box, Ipad was found to be faulty with lock button very loose and making rattling noise.nThe same day, i requested Flipkart to get the product replaced but the seller rejected the request saying that all apple products have the same issue and get some Doa letter from apple. This kind of reply and after sales support was unexpected.I feel highly disappointed.nSo, Please dont buy any apple product from eHaat.
