I was fascinated by the Apple Newton when it was introduced in 1993, but as a child of the 90’s I never actually owned one. These were expensive tools for professionals, not toys to be played with by school-age kids.

What makes iPad mini 6 so great?

Let’s start with the size. At 8.3 inches, it is small enough to take with you everywhere you go, but big enough to never feel too small. It is the perfect combination of portability and usability. Like the original iPad, it feels like holding the internet in the palm of your hand. With 326 PPI, the screen is both sharp and roomy, making it great for reading ebooks and general browsing.

What about on the desktop?

The desktop, however, is where iPadOS still falls short. Plugging in to an external monitor is great for giving presentations or watching videos, but anything else is limited to screen mirroring. This means you can generally only use up to two apps at a time and screen resolution is limited.
