Released in October 2012, the 1st generation iPad mini offered a powerful tablet experience in a compact form factor. Buy a used Apple iPad mini (2012 1st Gen.) (Wi-Fi + Cellular) at Phone Daddy!

Shrinking Bezels, Big Potential

The iPad mini boasted a 7.9-inch LED-backlit IPS display. While the screen size remains common today, the bezels (the borders around the screen) were much thicker by modern standards. However, the 1024 x 768 resolution delivered a decent viewing experience for photos, videos, and games at the time.

The Apple A5 Takes Charge

The Apple A5 dual-core processor was the engine powering the iPad mini. This chip provided smooth performance for everyday tasks like browsing the web, checking email, and playing games.

Dual Cameras for Snapshots and Video Calls

The 5-megapixel rear camera allowed you to capture decent photos, while the VGA front camera provided basic functionality for video calls.

Wi-Fi and Cellular Freedom

The iPad mini (1st gen) offered Wi-Fi connectivity for web browsing and downloading content at home or hotspots. The Wi-Fi + Cellular model added the flexibility of using cellular data for an internet connection on the go, making it a true mobile device.

All-Day Battery Life: Power Through Your Day

Apple advertised the iPad mini with a battery life of up to 10 hours for Wi-Fi browsing. This provided enough juice to get you through a workday or a long flight.
