With a display diagonal of only 7.9 inches, the Apple iPad Mini (3rd gen) has a fairly small display diagonal compared to most of the other A7 processor tablet computers that were launched around the same time as the iPad Mini (3rd gen).

Put simply the iPad mini 3 demands an extra £80 for TouchID and the option to choose the gold colour finish. That's a significant premium over the iPad mini 2, which is the better buy. If you...

Great size, good screen
TouchID integrated
Amazing display, excellent battery life, fast processor, great 3D graphics, easy to use, app store still number one for quality and variety
Excellent screen and design iOS 88.1 features, including timelapse and Apple Pay Touch ID fingerprint scanner adds convenience
Though we're disappointed by the lack of upgrades
Same as last year, iPad mini 2 offers far better value for money
The addition of TouchID and gold colour option just doesn't seem to justify such a premium over the iPad mini 2
Cameras and processor not improved in line with other iPads
Minimal updates over last model
Relatively pricey
