Sometimes it’s nice to put a face to the conversation. And with FaceTime video calls on iPad mini, your conversations have never looked better. Make a video call over Wi-Fi or cellular and see (or show) every expression on the beautiful Retina display. The FaceTime HD camera in iPad mini ensures that all your FaceTime chats, selfies, and group Photo Booth shots are always crisp and clear, even in low-light situations. You can even use it to take videos of yourself.
We think about what goes into a great shot so you don’t have to. The 5‑megapixel iSight camera on iPad mini was designed to help you capture all of life’s moments at a moment’s notice. Use the Retina display as an easy viewfinder to frame the perfect shot. And quickly swipe between modes including Panorama and Time-lapse to capture stills or video. Every time you shoot, the image signal processor in the A7 chip works with the camera to make adjustments and deliver a great picture or video — automatically. You don’t have to think about anything other than who you’re going to share the moment with.
iPad mini 3 gives you lightning-quick Wi‑Fi performance thanks to two antennas and MIMO (multiple-input multiple-output) technology. With dual-band 802.11n Wi‑Fi and MIMO, download speeds can reach up to 300 Mbps, so when you want to download a movie, share photos or documents with AirDrop, or just browse the web, your connection is always speedy.
