De reviews van de nieuwe iPad mini
Sinds het moment dat Apple de nieuwe iPad Air en iPad mini eerder deze week uitbracht zijn er op veel plekken enthousiaste reacties te lezen. Niet voor niets, want Apple heeft velen van ons verrast met hoe krachtig en compleet deze nieuwe modellen zijn.

Deze iPad komen met de A12 processor, dezelfde als in de iPhone Xr and Xs, ondersteuning voor de Apple Pencil (eerste generatie) en een scherm dat niet alleen True Tone ondersteunt maar ook gelamineerd is. Dat laatste zorgt ervoor dat het beeld ‘helemaal bovenop’ het device ligt. Bij schermen die niet gelamineerd zijn voel je wat afstand tussen het beeld en bijvoorbeeld de Apple Pencil, iets wat bij de 9,7-inch iPad die Apple vorig jaar uitbracht het geval is. Lamineren is duurder, waardoor de nieuwe iPad mini ook duurder is dat die 9,7-inch iPad.

De reviews van de nieuwe iPad mini


Inmiddels komen de reviews voor deze nieuwe iPad mini naar buiten, hieronder vind je stukjes daaruit en de links daarnaar.

Nilay Patel voor The Verge

But the decision to get an iPad mini is simple: do you want a small, capable tablet? If you do, the mini is obviously worth $399, especially when you consider how long Apple has supported iPads for in the past. There’s just nothing else like it. Let’s just hope that next time we don’t have to wait four years for Apple to remember it exists again.

But unlike the iPhone SE, which managed to be both throwback and fun, or the retina return of the MacBook Air, the Mini doesn't feel quite as triumphant in the sea of other Apple-made alternatives. I guess in the end, what I'm saying is it didn't spark joy.

There will always be reasons to keep the mini around: as you read this, it's being used in point-of-sale kiosks and in airplane cockpits and on Chili's dining room tables. And that's great for them. For you and me, though — for most actual users, I suspect this year's mini will come off more as a capable curiosity than a must-own tablet.




Dan Graham voor Pocket-Lint

The iPad mini is a huge leap in terms of performance over its predecessor and last year's 9.7-inch iPad, too. If you want a more compact iPad, there's little we can say against it. Yes, there is some sadness that iPad mini couldn't have had smaller bezels and been a little more progressive in its appearance, but we don't believe that many would-be buyers will be put off by that.

I haven’t fallen in love with the new Mini, just as I never felt the need to buy one before. But I could see why people would. It’s less burdensome than a lot of other things we carry. It’s not quite pocketable, but it’s close. Again, I can’t hold it in one hand, but some people can, I’m sure. The Mini feels personal in a way that other devices no longer do. Not because of its actual newness, but because it is still here, and slightly reinvented, once again.


Matthew Panzarino voor TechCrunch

Citaat
Though still just as pricey (in comparison) as it was when it was introduced, the iPad mini remains a standout device. It’s small, sleek, now incredibly fast and well provisioned with storage. The smallness is a real advantage in my opinion. It allows the mini to exist as it does without having to take part in the ‘iPad as a replacement for laptops’ debate. It is very clearly not that, while at the same time still feeling more multipurpose and useful than ever. I’m falling in real strong like all over again with the mini, and the addition of Pencil support is the sweetener on top.


John Gruber voor Daring Fireball

Citaat
The iPad Mini puts the “pad” in iPad. If you want a device that is bigger than a phone, but smaller and more holdable than a laptop-screen-sized thing for reading and just walking around with, the iPad Mini is it. It’s in no way a laptop replacement and doesn’t aspire to be. It just is what it is, and what it is is great.


Jason Snell & Dan Moren voor Six Colors

Citaat
As the iPad line expands—it’s a family of five now—the different models are better suited for different tasks. The iPad mini is all about that small size, and with Apple Pencil support it can serve as a sketchbook or basic notebook. It’s also an ideal size for reading books, newspapers, and other web content. At $399 it’s worth asking if we’ve gotten to the point where people will consider pairing an iPad mini with a larger iPad and using them for different tasks. The truth is, the iPad mini’s processor means it’s capable of doing almost anything its larger siblings can do—it just does them all on a smaller screen.

The new iPad mini doesn’t need to be all things to all people. It doesn’t even need to be the cheapest iPad in the product line. It just needs to be small and light while still providing the power of a modern iPad, and it does that quite well

Helaas ontbreekt de 128GB optie. En 256GB is weer een te vette hap uit het budget. Even niet dus.

Citaat
But with the launch of the new iPad Air and iPad mini last month, Apple finally filled the gap. These two tablets seemingly served up the best the iOS platform had to offer, ditched the pretense of replacing your laptop, and didn't break the bank (much).

After spending some time with the devices recently, the result seems clear: Apple's latest tablets are likely the best fits for most people.
