iPad mini 2


The Apple iPad mini 2 (2nd Generation) is a tablet that was designed, manufactured, and sold by Apple from 2013 to 2017 as part of the iPad series. The tablet has been introduced on October 22, 2013, and its price started at $399.

The second version of iPad mini features a Dual-Core 1.3 GHz 64-bit Apple A7 processor with Quad-Core graphics, Apple M7 motion coprocessor, 1 GB of RAM, 7.9″ high-resolution Retina multi-touch widescreen LCD IPS Display, Wi-Fi, 16 GB / 32 GB / 64 GB or 128 GB of flash memory, Bluetooth 4.0, Dual camera system; front 1.2 Mpix FaceTime HD camera, and rear 5.0 Mpix camera with 1080p video recording capability, accelerometer, Ambient light sensor, digital compass, Lightning port, 3.5-mm headphone jack, and an optional version with GPS, and 4G / LTE data capability.

The iPad Mini 2 has the same-sized 7.9-inch screen, and the same design as, the first-generation model. A notable change is the inclusion of a Retina Display, matching the screen resolution of the larger iPad models since the third-generation iPad. The screen resolution also leads to a higher pixel density than the iPad Air, matching that of the iPhone 5s.

This iPad has been discontinued on March 21, 2017, and has been replaced by the iPad mini 3.

Today iPad mini 2 is 8 years old!
