Hey all. My Ipad Air got an update version 7.0.6 just now at 9.45 pm India Standard Time at Hyderabad, India. It's about 32 Mb size. It's about SSL security certificate update it says.

Sorry for the late reply. I don't often visit the site since I already bought the mini 2 and I don't have anymore clarification.

About iPad 4 and Mini 2 (both retina display) overall performance when it comes to game is some what the same. Loading of games in Mini 2 is a bit faster like 2-4 secs against iPad 4. When I try to use my iPad 4, I feel its a bit heavier and I get used to the Mini 2 light weight. I used iPad 4 when I just want to watch some movies or youtube since I will just put the iPad 4 on stand mode. Watching with Mini 2 is still ok, but you will prefer the iPad 4 for viewing.

I would suggest go get Air instead of iPad 4. But if you want portability and not much a burden or eye catching for robbers I go for Mini 2 since it is small and easy to put it on a small shoulder bag.

This has me worried about iPad Mini 2, WHICH? has done a real life battery test of tablets, and they used a light meter to set the brightness to 200 nits to avoid random results like the reviews here on this site. Mini 2 did poorly in video test, almost 3 hours less than iPad air. I may have to reconsider what tablet my daughter will get for her birthday, seems like its well worth it to spend $100 more to get the Air.

Is that me or people becoming dumber or it just internet is filled with Apple hater trolls!
1) One said Apple products' screen are unusually low even at 50% brightness, Apple iPads, iPhones, iPods known for their very good high brightness in their LCDs.
2) Some debating is iPad Mini 2 really a good upgrade for iPad 4? Dude, new iPad Mini 2 has new A7 processor, new always is better, it's 64bit, better than on iPad 4, it has new quad core Graphic cores/card, better than iPad 4, smaller screen but same resolution means sharper screen.

But i suspect it should be at 50% brightness, not 25%, however it may not matter much since Apple products have unusually low brightness also at 50% brightness.

My battery drop 1% when I browse safari for around 6mins, my brightness is currently 25% and auto brightness is off. This is my first time using ipad, so I am not sure whether is it normal?
