iPad mini 4: Lighter, thinner and more powerful

He was given 20 seconds if it was lying like it’s the same iPad Air 2, only smaller. This iOS device dozens of engineers has invested part of the immortal soul, creating a masterpiece with perfect ergonomics.

I do not whether this is last year’s iPad mini 3, which was locked in the basement of the company, accusing him of criminal intent? 2014 8 inch tablets still aroused interest, but the “mini” was also a stunningly good – and that he had not harmed the sales of the iPad Air 2, which was invested much effort and funds, it was replaced by a losing and not too interesting revision of the iPad mini 2.

As a result, sales of “Apple” tablets (Air 2 and mini 3, and all the model number) fell by 17%, while tablets from other manufacturers, on average, fell by 7%. And I’m ashamed to say, thought: if, due to similar fears in the early ‘ 90s didn’t strangle the Apple II, can and crisis of the mid-90s would not have happened?

But back in 2015, and the iPad mini 4!

Part two: iPad mini with Retina display: how it all began
Third part: the iPad mini 3 is not what it seems


For the first time in the short history iPad mini, changed their design. iPad mini 4 rose (3.2 mm), there was “at the shoulders” (0.1 mm). In other words, in cases from previous models it does not fit. Changed and the thickness of the body. It is the first mini was 7.2 mm, the second and the third 7.5 mm, now it has reduced to 6.1 mm. With the same bending strength. Now it is definitely checked.

Left iPad mini 3, right – the iPad mini 4:

the iPad 4 was the first iPad mini with a nearly one hundred percent color gamut. The difference was visible to the naked eye – if at the same time to watch the screens of the Quartet and any of its ancestors. About the screen we still talk.

Computing and graphics power of the device, strictly speaking, are not part of its exterior. But not in this case. iPad mini 4 supported true multitasking and other features iOS 9 for iPad. No other iPad mini they are not “pulled.”

And, I almost forgot – the iPad mini 4 could be purchased in the body of one of three colors, silver and gray (color is gunmetal) has been added and “gold”. Especially popular in China and surrounding area. iPad mini 3 was produced only in the first two.

Ergonomics are hit – does anyone have spent dozens of hours of my life to buttons on the sides of the hull were just enough to make it clear that they are buttons, and at the same time not cling to surrounding objects. Actually, it’s great.

Screen, body, buttons, and two slots – that’s the whole exterior. Everything else – the software is the same as the full-sized iPad sufficient for this power.

Tear away the veils (nudity?)

Left iPad mini 3, right – the iPad mini 4:

Red circled the battery. In the iPad mini 4, it consists of a single cell, and its capacity (19,1 WH) is significantly less than the iPad mini 3 (of 23.8 WH).

Orange – the fact that iPad mini 3 researchers of artifacts called the “lower antenna”, now it’s down.

Yellow – FaceTime-camera, it is noticeably “thinner”. The iPad mini 3

A strange green shade of circled the plastic plugs. Their purpose is unknown to me.

It is interesting to consider what is usually hidden from our eyes. Read labels on chips with a clever kind to spot some familiar notation. But it’s easier to see with the fact that in the bowels of the iPad mini 4 have found the experts.

Inner peace

Heart iPad mini 4 last year (to September 2015) system-on-chip Apple A8, 64-bit 2-core of the Typhoon (it was also called Cyclone 2) with a clock frequency of 1.5 GHz. Chip integrated 4-core PowerVR GX6450.

Tablets with 8-inch screens, these prices were prohibitively high, but it wasn’t something new, and the decline in sales of tablets in this segment that did not connect.

  1. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all igions under the worship of one God

    Biblical prophecy tells us that this Jewish Messiah who will take the stage will be the antichrist who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God (2 Thessalonians 2:4) For a time he will bring about a false peace, but Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (Matthew 24:15) then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be (Matthew 24:21)

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name

    Here is wisdom Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it Revelation 13:11-18 tells us that a false prophet will arise on the world scene doing miracles before men, deceiving them to receive this Mark Do not be deceived! We must grow strong in Jesus AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11)

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast

    Visit WWW BIBLEFREEDOM COM to see proof for these things and why the Bible truly is the word of God!

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart Jesus loves you more than you could imagine He wants to have a ationship with you and redeem you from your sins Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! This is forever God bless!


    We all know God exists Why? Because without Him, we couldn’t prove anything at all Do we live our lives as if we cannot know anything? No So why is God necessary? In order to know anything for certain, you would have to know everything, or have revelation from somebody who does Who is capable of knowing everything? God So to know anything, you would have to be God, or know God

    A worldview without God cannot account for the uniformity and intelligibility of nature And why is it that we can even reason that God is the best explanation for this if there is no God? We are given reason to know or reject God, but never to know that He does not exist

    It has been calculated by Roger Penrose that the odds of the initial conditions for the big bang to produce the universe that we see to be a number so big, that we could put a zero on every particle in the universe, and even that would not be enough to use every zero What are the odds that God created the universe? Odds are no such thing Who of you would gamble your life on one coin flip?

    Is there evidence that the Bible is the truth? Yes Did you know that the creation accounts listed in the book of Genesis are not only all correct, but are also in the correct chronological order? That the Bible doesn’t say the Earth was formed in six 24-hour days but rather six long but finite periods of time? That the Bible makes 10 times more creation claims than all major holy books combined with no contradictions, while these other books have errors in them? The Bible stood alone by concurring with the big bang saying, In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth (Genesis 1:1); and says our universe is expanding, thousands of years before scientists discovered these things Watch a potential life-changing video on the front page of WWW BIBLEFREEDOM COM with Astronomer(PhD) Hugh Ross explaining all these facts based on published scientific data He has authored many books, backed even by atheist scientists

    Jesus fulfilled more than 300 Messianic prophecies concerning His birth place, details of His life, His mission, His nature, His death, and His resurrection He came to pay a debt that we could not, to be our legal justifier to reconcile us back to a Holy God; only if we are willing to receive Him: For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 6:23)

    God so loved the world that He gave us His only begotten son, so that whoever believes in Him, through faith, shall not perish, but have everlasting life Jesus says if we wish to enter into life to keep the commands! The two greatest commands are to love God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind; and your neighbor as yourself All the law hang on these commands We must be born of and lead by the Holy Spirit, to be called children of God, to inherit the kingdom If we are willing to humble ourselves in prayer to Jesus, to confess and forsake our sins, He is willing to give the Holy Spirit to those who keep asking of Him; giving us a new heart, leading us into all truth!

    Jesus came to free us from the bondage of sin The everlasting fire was prepared for the devil and his angels due to disobedience to God’s law If we do the same, what makes us any different than the devil? Jesus says unless we repent, we shall perish We must walk in the Spirit, producing fruits of love and forgiveness, so we may not fulfill the lusts of the flesh being hatred, fornication, drunkenness and the like Whoever practices such things will not inherit the kingdom (Galatians 5:16-26) If we sin, we may come before Jesus to ask for forgiveness (1 John 2:1-2) Evil thoughts are not sins, but rather temptations It is not until these thoughts conceive and give birth by our hearts desire that they become sin (James 1:12-15) When we sin, we become in the likeness of the devil’s image, for he who sins is of the devil (1 John 3:8); but if we obey Jesus, in the image of God For without holiness, we shall not see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14)

    The oldest igion in the world is holiness (James 1:27) What igion did Adam and Eve follow before the fall? Jesus, Who became the last Adam, what igion does He follow? Is He not holy? He never told us to follow any igion or denomination but to deny ourselves, take up our cross daily, and follow Him (Luke 9:23) There are many false doctrines being taught leading people astray This is why we need the Holy Spirit for discernment Unlike igion, holiness cannot be created It is given to us from above by the baptism of the Spirit Jesus is more than a igion; He is about having a personal ationship with the Father Start by reading the Gospel of Matthew, to hear the words of God, to know His character and commandments Follow and obey Jesus, for He is the way, the truth, and the life!
