    Re: iPad mini 2 vs iPad mini 3 Comparison

    Conclusion:

    The Apple iPad Mini 3 is exact same when compared to the old gen iPad Mini 2. If you like to have a big storage size for movies and videos or if you would like to collect all the series or episodes from podcast then it does make sense for the storage option to select the iPad Mini 3. The Touch ID fingerprint sensor is the only difference when comparing the features other than the storage.

    The Apple iPad Mini 2 have all the features that the new iPad Mini 3 is offering. If you want to upgrade from your iPad Mini 2 to any other tablet, here is the suggestion to buy the Apple iPad Air 2. It has better processor with better camera and it also has the bigger screen with Touch ID fingerprint sensor. Upgrading doesn’t make sense but if you would like to have more storage and Touch ID fingerprint sensor, then it would be better.
