Ipad As A Display For Mac Mini

admin 12/14/2021

Except of course that you can use an iPad as your display on a Mac mini with software for a fair amount of casual use cases. Maybe you carry the iPad around with you most of the week and pop it on. Explore the world of iPad. Featuring an all-new iPad Air, an even faster iPad, iPad Pro in two sizes, and iPad mini.

Mini just got mightier.

iPad mini is beloved for its size and capability. And now there are even more reasons to love it. The A12 Bionic chip with Neural Engine. A 7.9‑inch Retina display with True Tone. And Apple Pencil, so you can capture your biggest ideas wherever they come to you. It’s still iPad mini. There’s just more of it than ever.

Design

Compact. Portable.
Pocketable.

iPad mini features a thin, light, and portable design that makes it the perfect on-the-go companion. At 0.66 pound and 6.1 mm thin,1 it’s easy to carry with you in one hand or take out of a pocket or bag whenever inspiration strikes.

Stay connected with fast Wi‑Fi and Gigabit‑class LTE whenever you need it.2

Performance

Mini

Power beyond its size.

The A12 Bionic chip with Neural Engine enables a remarkable level of power and intelligence. It uses real-time machine learning to recognize patterns, make predictions, and learn from experience. With all this power, you can run apps like Adobe Photoshop CC,* experience augmented reality, or play an immersive game with console-level graphics.

Retina Display

It’s not the size of the display. It’s the quality of the pixel.

iPad mini packs over 3 million pixels into a 7.9‑inch display. And we made them all count. Whether you’re reading in the park or editing video in your home office, the high brightness, wide color, and antireflective coating offer true-to-life detail and razor-sharp text. And True Tone dynamically adjusts white balance so images look natural in any light.

Cameras

Stay in touch.
Shoot in HD. Play in AR.

The front and back cameras in iPad mini let you take vivid photos and cinematic videos. But the fun doesn’t stop there. Make FaceTime calls with friends, scan documents and mark them up, or even use augmented reality to plan out your living room decor.

Apple Pencil

iPadOS

iPadOS on iPad mini gives you the full iPad experience in the most compact iPad. Use multiple apps at once, launch your favorite apps from the Dock, and drag and drop files using simple Multi‑Touch gestures.
