The 2021 iPad Mini is a powerful, compact tablet that’s less cumbersome than larger iPads.
It’s easier to carry around due to its small size, and its screen is still larger than any phone I know about.

If the standard 2021 iPad is the “best” iPad for most people, then the 2021 iPad Mini is the “perfect” iPad.

Again, the iPad Mini is also lightweight, and combined with its smaller overall size, it’s noticeably more portable than larger tablets. That extra portability, I’d argue, is more useful than a larger display. I found myself using the iPad Mini more often than larger iPads simply because it was easier to bring from the couch in the sitting room to the kitchen, or any other room in the house.
