The iPad mini is a mini tablet designed and marketed by Apple Inc. Announced in late 2012, the iPad mini features a smaller screen than its predecessor, the iPad. While the iPad’s screen is 9.7 inches, the iPad mini’s screen is 7.9 inches. It is available with storage of 16, 32, or 64 GB.
The internal specs for the iPad mini is similar to the iPad 2. One such similarity is the iPad mini’s screen resolution. Both the iPad mini and iPad 2 have a screen resolution of 1024 x 768. The iPad mini also has Siri and voice dictation like the iPad 2 as well as the same graphics processor.
The operating system of the original iPad mini is iOS 6.0, but the latest version is iOS 9.3. The iPad mini has the ability to act as a hotspot with some carriers, allowing a user to share its internet connection over Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, or USB.
An iPad mini is a good tablet to buy refurbished. For one thing, the price of a refurbished mini is much less than the price of a new one. If you want an iPad that will have the ability to download from the thousands of apps at the Apple store, you don’t have to buy a brand new iPad mini.
Buying a refurbished iPad mini can save you more than you know, and you’ll get a device that has been factory reconditioned to be the same as you would get from a new device except that it is pre-owned. You can actually choose how much you want to spend by specifying the storage and condition of the refurbished device.
Following are some benefits of buying a refurbished iPad mini:
Minimal signs of wear
A new iPad mini comes with all the bells and whistles you would expect from Apple such as Siri, a camera, and all the available apps in the Apple store. You can open your brand new iPad mini and get a sleek, stylish device that does everything you want and need it to do. The great thing about a refurbished iPad mini is that it does the same thing that a new one will at a much reduced price.
When you buy a refurbished iPad mini, you get all of the same features as a new one, but you will be getting a device that has been pre-owned. It could be that the person who purchased the device originally returned it because they didn’t care for the Apple experience. It may have spent very little time actually being used. Why wouldn’t anyone want to get a device like that for a better price than purchasing a new one?
You can decide whether you want a device that has very minimal signs of wear or one that has a few more signs of wear. Every refurbished device has been sent back to the factory to be reconditioned to Apple’s exacting specifications so you will know that your device will work as it should right out of the package.
