Still well-designed
Slick OS
Too much like the mini 2
Overpriced compared to last year

The iPad mini range is still a brilliant proposition, offering the best of the iPad but squishing it down into a smaller package.

Well, that's what happened last year - this year Apple has basically rebooted the Mini 2, put TouchID on the front, made it gold and called it a new tablet.

It's only ahead of the older version (a cheaper option while offering the same specs minus the biometrics) due to this being a list of the best tablets, and this is the best mini tablet from Apple, but it's not offering a lot more than last year's model.

What it does bring is good though: iOS 8 works very well on the mini 3, and the overall speed and compact size is still a very good combo, even at the higher price.
