Apple is the leader when it comes to its popular smart phones. The brand is also king when it comes to its iPad Mini and iPad Air. According to TFJ, the Apple iPad tablet is the most reliable and sturdy model, and it can stay intact for several years. It’s no surprise that people want to get their hands on the newest iPad Mini this Christmas.

The very first Apple iPad was released in 2010. So far, there have been six generations of this model. Apple decided to branch out into the tablet arena with different versions such as the iPad Mini and the iPad Air. These models have also been gaining popularity with consumers, especially around the holiday season. But which one is the better Apple tablet?

The iPad Mini has a 7.9-inch screen display. It also includes LED backlit features and multi-touch IPS technology, according to the TFJ report. It also has a 1024 x 768 resolution and dimensions of 7.87 x 5.3 x 0.28. The iPad Mini has excellent battery support for regular use. It also includes features like a 5 MP iSight camera and a Facetime camera with face detection and backside illumination.

But it looks like the iPad Mini has some competition from a fellow tablet. The iPad Air has a retina display, something that the Mini doesn’t. It also has a 9.7-inch display screen. It includes an LED backlight and multi-touch display with IPS technology. The Air has a 2048 x 1536 resolution at 264 pixels per inch, which provides for a bright and easy to read display output. It also includes features such as an A7 chip with a 64-bit and M7 co-processor. This will provide quick access to all of your applications for a prolonged period of time.

Both the iPad Mini and Air have been selling well in the global market. Both of these tablets can be used for recreational, business and educational purposes. There are several educational materials available in the Apple iPad library.

Both of the models are also as durable as possible. It’s a well-known fact that Apple iPads are the most durable and reliable tablets available in the market. Whether you get a Mini or an Air, you will feel good knowing that your tablet will work for several years.

Yibada provided a side-by-side comparison of the Apple iPad Mini and iPad Air. The news site also reported that both tablets are on sale during Cyber Week. The week of Christmas is now being called Cyber Week. That means consumers can find great discounts on gadgets and electronics. There have been price cuts on both the iPad Mini and iPad Air all over the Web.

The 16GB iPad Mini is available for $325 at Best Buy. At Target, you can save $60 on the Mini, but without the retina display. There are also many deals available on this version, including free gift cards.

Meanwhile, the iPad Air was offered for less than $129 for the whole week, according to Yibada. Retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, Staples and Walmart offered discounts on the Air, which includes deals on store cards. Apple was also offering iTunes gift cards along with the Air.

A recent report on Inquisitr showed consumers how they can get a deal on the iPad Air 2 or the iPad Mini 3. This deal is for up to $100 off on either of the models. Both tablets make excellent gifts, but the iPad Mini may be a desirable option if the iPad Air is a little too bulky for travel.
