Powerful A5 chip.
iPad is known for its fast, fluid performance, and iPad mini doesn’t disappoint. It features the powerful and power-efficient A5 chip, which makes everything you do feel smooth and natural. From the little things like switching from app to app and swiping from page to page, to the big things like editing photos, watching movies, and playing games.
10-hour battery life.
iPad mini wouldn’t be an iPad without incredible battery life. Even with so much performance packed into such a small space, it still lasts up to 10 hours on a single charge.5 So you can read, watch, play, write, and create whatever you want, as long as you want.
Wave hello with FaceTime video calling.
With FaceTime built into iPad mini, you can make a video call over Wi-Fi or cellular.2 The front-facing FaceTime HD camera gives everyone a great view of you, while the iSight camera on the back lets you show others what you’re seeing. So even when you’re out and about, your friends and family are never out of the loop. You can hear every laugh and see every smile.

Record HD video in full 1080p.
An impromptu performance on the subway, the winning shot at your daughter’s soccer game, an awesome 360-degree view from the top of the mountain — the iSight camera on iPad mini lets you capture all these unpredictable, beautiful, spectacular moments.
