The new iPad mini does not support mmWave 5G technology

One of the most exciting news from the iPhone 13 conference was Apple's new iPad mini device, but restrictions emerged after the conference because the device did not support the millimeter wave networking standard.

This is the super fast 5G version that you see in these demos. Although the millimeter wave standard is not widely used. However, if you want to transfer gigabit data over 5G, the iPad mini is not for you.

One of Apple's greatest strengths is the support for 5G through the cellular version of the iPad Mini. However, due to the company's technical specifications, the device only supports the low and medium frequency bands of the 5G network.

With the introduction of the iPhone 12, Apple began promoting 5G networks and continues to promote the faster upload and download speeds that the technology can offer in 2021.

Apple slows down the iPad mini's processor

The new iPhone 13 and iPad mini both have Apple's latest A15 bionics chip. However, the results of the benchmark test show that the main frequency of the iPad mini chip has been reduced to 2.9 GHz, while the main frequency of all iPhone 13 models is 3.2 GHz.

As expected, the impact of the reduced chip on the performance of the iPad mini seems small compared to the iPhone 13 model, only 2% to 8%.

In the early Geekbench 5 results, the new iPad mini's single-core and multi-core test scores averaged around 1,595 and 4,540, while the iPhone 13 Pro averaged 1,730 and 4,660, respectively.

It's unclear why Apple is slowing down the A15 chip on the iPad mini. However, most users are not likely to encounter any performance issues with the device.

Even with the A15 low frequency electronic chip. The single-core performance of the new iPad mini has been increased by up to 40%, and the multi-core performance by up to 70%. This is compared to the previous generation iPad mini which came with the A12 chip.
