Lisa Eadicicco, provided by Published 6:00 am CDT, Thursday, March 21, 2019 Hollis Johnson/Business Insider The iPad mini received a long overdue upgrade earlier this week that brings better performance, Apple Pencil support, and an enhanced display.

By contrast, the new iPad Mini is comfort food. More than three years after Apple last upgraded its smallest tablet, it’s given us a new version that looks just like the old one, with the same 7.9-inch screen size and starting price of $399.
