Apple Revealed Ipad Mini 2 With A7 Chip & Retina Display




Apple unveiled its latest addition to its Ipad Mini series in the shape of Ipad Mini 2 with 7.9inches of Retina Display with mighty A7 64bit processor along coprocessor M7.

Display

Ipad Air packs 7.9inches Retin  (diagonal) LED-backlit Multi‑Touch display with IPS technology supporting a resolution of 2048x1536 with 326 pixels per inch (ppi). This is double the resolution and pixels per inch of its predecessor (Ipad Mini) display . Its interesting to see that Ipad Mini 2 packs more pixels per inch as compared to newly launched Ipad Air by apple, even though its 1.5 inches smaller in screen size.

Hardware:

Ipad Mini 2  is powered with mighty A7 chip which is clocked at Dual core 1.3Ghz cyclone processor with 1gb of ram found on Ipad Air and gives you CPU and graphics performance up to 2 times faster than the A6 chip found on Ipad 4 and Iphone 5. Its magnificent to see that Ipad Mini 2 will give you upto 4 times faster Cpu speed  than Ipad Mini and not even that its also going to give you upto 8 times faster gpu speed as compared to its predecessor. This means now you are upgrading your Ipad 2 with Ipad 5 and this is a drastic change in speed. A7 makes Ipad Mini 2 the first 64-bit Mini tablet in the world with a new M7 coprocessor which is like a sidekick to the A7 chip. M7 is designed specifically to measure motion data from the accelerometer, gyroscope and compass, a task that would normally fall to the A7 chip but because of M7 chip you will also see a less burden on battery. In terms of Ipad Air equipped with PowerVR G6430 which is quad-core graphic chip and runs almost every game like a butter in it like Iphone 5S and Ipad Air.

Design

Ipad Mini 2 have crystalline diamond cuts lines on the sides like Iphone 5, 5s and Ipad Air which are very well fitted on the Ipad by apple. On back of Ipad Air we have anodised 6000 series aluminium — the same material used in Apple notebooks.

Dimension:

Ipad Mini 2 measures 200mm (Height) x 134.7 (Width) x 7.5mm (Thickness) and weighs 331grams (Wifi Model) 341 grams (Wifi +3G Model) in comparison to Ipad Mini measurements of 200mm (Height) x 134.7mm (Width) x 7.2mm (Thickness) and weighs 308grams (Wifi Model) 312grams (Wifi+3G Model). These measurements illustrates that Ipad mini is only .3mm thincker and 19grams lighter  than Ipad Mini, but this is not a big deal specially if we look Ipad Mini 2 specs in comparison to its predecessor.



Software

Ipad Mini 2 integrated with iOS 7 and it is designed to take advantage of 64-bit architecture. So it’s every bit as advanced as the iPad Mini 2 it runs on. And with new features like smarter multitasking, Control Centre and AirDrop, iOS 7 makes the experience of using iPad Air even more beautiful and simple. Because iOS 7 and iPad Air weren’t just designed to work together, they were designed to enhance one another according to Apple.

Internal Memory

Ipad Mini 2 comes up in four types of built-in storage 16gb, 32gb, 64gb and 128gb and all of them price differently, so if you want more built in storage then pay more to get your new Ipad Mini 2 with your desired onboard storage.

Ports

In terms of port Ipad Mini 2 remains the same with home button, lightning connect, one speaker, 3.5mm jack,  dual microphones, silent on and off key . However instead of Micro Sim its now going to take Nano sim the same one we have seen on Iphone 5, 5s.

Connectivity:

In terms of connectivity Ipad Mini 2 comes up with Blutooth, Wifi, LTE.

Battery

Ipad Mini 2 battery remain unchanged and gives you 10 hours of web surfing over Wifi and 9 hours of web surfing over data plan.

Camera

Ipad Mini 2 comes up with a same camera found on Ipad Air  on the front and back. On the front it has 1.2mp Camera and on the back it has 5mp camera.

Final Verdict

To give my final verdict we are going to use a SWOT analysis below

Strength

Ipad Mini 2 packs a considerable beautiful 7.9 inches display with a superior design, strong processor than its predecessor.

Weakness

It doesn’t have too much weaknesses, but at some extent it can be argue why its not equipped with flash light with back camera or why it doesn’t support 8mp snapper.  Another thing people want in their device is storage it has 4 variants in terms of storage, but people have to pay more to get more storage whereas if they have putted the sd card slot in it people can transfer files easily from their pc to Ipad or Ipad to PC.

Opportunity

One of the biggest opportunity Ipad Mini 2 has is its A7 64bit chip with powerfull Gpu to play any game flawlessly in it.


Threats

The biggest threat to Ipad Mini 2 is its own Ipad Air which is launched by Apple and Sony Xperia Z Ultra along with Nexus 7 2013 which is powered with might Snapdragon  processor with 2gb of Ram.

Ipad Mini is expected to fall on shelves on 29th or before end of November with bang.








Apple Unveils Ipad Air (5TH Generation Ipad With A7 Chip)



Apple unveiled its latest addition to its Ipad series in the shape of Ipad Air supposed to be Ipad 5, with 9.7 inches of display and A7 64bit processor with coprocessor M7.

After downloading Odin 3 download Root software for installing root on your Note 3 All variants from a below links. Please make sure your are downloading a correct rooting tool kit for your Note 3 from a below link .


After downloading CF-Auto-Root for your Note 3, extract it using winrar and you will get 3 files like a below picture, but you have to ignore two odin files because we have already installed odin in our system






STEP 1:

Now once you have installed a Samsung Kies and open it with your Note 3 connected with your computer,  it will automatically detect your phone and install all the necessary hardware of your phone in your computer. When you connect your phone with your pc it will look like a below picture in Samsung Kies.





After doing this step, make sure you have closed down a Samsung Kies as well as you have disconnected your phone from computer.


STEP 2:


After installing drivers through Samsung Kies  you have to open Odin. Now from a ODIN Folder you have to press a third file which is Odin3 (Run as Administrator and make sure your phone is disconnected from computer). After opening it you will see a window like below picture.

Its very easy to Unroot Note 3 after rooting it. Make sure you have installed proper drivers by installing Kies on your PC. If you have followed my steps to root your device, you must have all the drivers installed by now. If you have not did rooting by looking at the above tutorial, then just have a quick go at Rooting process (Step 1). To unroot  your Note 3  you need three things which are going to take little bit longer than rooting your phone.

3. After opening Odin we have to download a Triangle away

Grant access to Super Su and  if it will ask you to follow you on twitter and facebook press no. Now here you have to press a Reset flash Counter and below picture like window will pop out, no worries nothing is going to happen to your mobile just press continue :). If in-case your phone stop responding after pressing continue then just hold power on and off key for 5 seconds so it can automatically get shut down otherwise you have to shut down your phone anyways. 





Now after shutting down your mobile Press Power On Key + Home Button + Down Volume key at the same time and you will see a  window like like below picture on your phone

Your firmware should be look like a below picture on your PC. Make sure only two things are ticked in Odin: Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time like a below picture when you add a firmware to ODIN.





Now press start and if Odin gives you a message dont responding like a below picture now worries because its going to respond after taking its time 






Now when its start responding you will see a below like picture on your Pc and Phone, dont touch anything now

                             






After all the downloading process get complete you will see a picture like below in your PC and your phone will be restarted automatically.





Now you have to make a backup of your files  using Samsung Kies, so you will not loose your internal storage files, if you have saved all the things in your external sd card no worries. After making a backup, power off your phone and Press Power Key + Up Volume Key + Home Button at the same time and you will see a below like picture on your phone.

Now use down volume key again and select Yes--delete user data by pressing power button
and  below picture like window comes up and here you have to press reboot system now by pressing power  key. Now reboot will take little bit longer because we are installing a firmware. Thats it you have successfully unrooted your device, claim your warranty or else sell your phone if you want to :).
