I’ve always been fond of Apple’s iPad mini; I bought the first one as a Mother’s Day gift, and the iPad mini 4 was one of the first big reviews I ever wrote for Engadget. Unfortunately, Apple hasn’t shown its smallest tablet nearly as much affection: As I write this, it’s been more than three years since the company gave the mini a refresh. In that time, we’ve seen Apple launch and redesign a line of pro-grade tablets and build a stunningly competent entry-level model. Frankly, I had nearly given up on the mini entirely — that is, until Apple announced a refreshed model earlier this week.
