Furthermore, the Mini features an 8.3-inch display, 2266 x 1488 resolution, and support for Apples True Tone technology, that allows one to fine-tune the display in line with the lighting in your environment. All of this is powered by Apples A15 Bionic CPU, making the most recent Mini the main one to beat before inevitable arrival of an M1 or M2 model. Read our review.
