Put simply the iPad mini 3 demands an extra £80 for TouchID and the option to choose the gold colour finish. That's a significant premium over the iPad mini 2, which is the better buy. If you...

Great size, good screen
TouchID integrated
Amazing display, excellent battery life, fast processor, great 3D graphics, easy to use, app store still number one for quality and variety
Excellent screen and design iOS 88.1 features, including timelapse and Apple Pay Touch ID fingerprint scanner adds convenience
Though we're disappointed by the lack of upgrades
Same as last year, iPad mini 2 offers far better value for money
The addition of TouchID and gold colour option just doesn't seem to justify such a premium over the iPad mini 2
Cameras and processor not improved in line with other iPads
Minimal updates over last model
Relatively pricey

Undeniably attractive design

Carrierswitchable SIM on cellularcapable models
Good handling
Great finish
Not a compelling value for many buyers, with iPad Mini 2 at 100 less
No improvements whatsoever, except for the addition of TouchID
A reduced weight and a smaller border wouldn't have gone amiss
Holds less appeal than the iPad Mini Retina (iPad Mini 2), and the latter is still available

Still great, now with more storage options and Touch ID
The addition of Touch ID for securing the tablet Apple Pay
Premium design that's solidly constructed
Very snappy with its performance
Continues to take some excellent photos and videos
You should save your cash and get the iPad Mini 2
No notable changes with the hardware
399 cost doesn't seem appropriate given the changes
The display's brightness output is less than the iPad mini 2
Shorter battery life than the iPad mini 2 in our battery benchmark test
