    Kind of a dud of an updateI’ve had an iPad Mini 4, 5 and now 6. I use them in the cockpit of a small plane, which is one thing Apple is now marketing the Mini 6 for. But I also use it for general tablet stuff; web browsing, watching YouTube, listening to music. I upgraded from the 5 to the 6 specifically for Pencil 2 support. The Mini 5 supports the first-gen Pencil, and while that was great as a first step towards going paperless in the cockpit for me, the way the Pencil 1 charges is just really an inconvenience for my use. I’d constantly get in the plane only to realize my Pencil is dead, and I’d have to just go back to paper anyway. I ended up just always carrying paper and a pen on me anyway, which kind of defeats the purpose of having the Pencil. So being able to have the Pencil 2 constantly stuck to the iPad and charging magnetically was enough in itself to get me to upgrade.You’d normally expect that any upgraded tech device would have all the stuff you liked about the prior model, but just with more power, features and/or a more elegant design. In the case of the Mini 6, though, I feel like it may be one step forward, two steps back. I’m really happy with the Pencil 2 support but not really with anything else. I may actually be returning it; I’ll update this review if I do.First, jelly scroll is real. I’m always skeptical of complaints like this. They often start with one person who’s either overly nitpicky or who just got a defective unit, and then they snowball as others with the same defect or a severe case of OCD write internet comments in agreement. But I was honestly shocked when I turned on my Mini 6, went to a random web page in Chrome, scrolled and saw the effect. It was much worse than I expected, and easily noticeable. It is difficult to believe this got past Apple’s quality control.In reading some other articles about this, it seems clear that Apple’s not really lying when they say this is “normal LCD behavior”, but the problem is that they’ve mounted the screen controller in the Mini 6 sideways. If you look at the Mini 5, and pretty much any other tablet, you do see some jelly scrolling in landscape orientation, but not in portrait orientation. The Mini 6 is the opposite; it jelly scrolls in portrait but not in landscape. So it is, oddly, a landscape tablet. The weird thing about it, though, is that the controls are not really set up for that orientation, and I sure don’t normally use it that way. It’s not an efficient way to read web pages; the only thing it’s good for is watching videos, where jelly scrolling isn’t an issue regardless of how the screen controller’s mounted.The screen is also slightly taller (or you could say “wider” if you consider it a landscape tablet), and that doesn’t work well in portrait mode either. My Mini 5 shows 6 icons across and they are nicely spaced. The Mini 6, using the same settings (smaller icons), shows 5 icons across and they are weirdly bunched up in the middle. This could be fixed with an OS update but I’d never buy any product based on the promise of a future update. Also, it again is just a weird design decision from a company that’s supposed to be all about design.I compared the screen brightness of the two tablets as well and while they’re close, the Mini 5 is very slightly brighter. Again, I made sure they had the same settings – max brightness, Night Shift off, and True Tone both on and off. The Mini 5 screen always wins by a hair.Add to all that the removal of the headphone jack and I’d say that if you don’t need Pencil 2 support, keep your Mini 5 or buy a refurbished one if you’re in the market for your first Mini. Save yourself some money too. This was just not a very good update to the Mini line.Personally, I just need to decide if the Pencil 2 support is enough to overcome all of the Mini 6’s downsides. My only viable alternative if I do want the Pencil 2 is the iPad Air, which is $100 more expensive and bigger/heavier… not necessarily an asset in a small plane carrying two people. The iPad Pro also supports the Pencil 2 but it is larger still and even more expensive. It’s a tough call for me, but I’d definitely say that most people should get either a Mini 5 (if you don’t need the Pencil 2) or an Air (if you want the Pencil 2 and have the space for a larger tablet).

    iPad mini 6 has a screen defectThe media could not be loaded.

     I don’t know if you have noticed it. When you are reading an e-book. Swipe up and down. You will find waves

    Jelly scroll heads upResearch the word “jelly scroll” before buying the 2021 iPad mini 6. Apple says jelly scrolling on the iPad mini 6 isn’t an issue. A number of recent mini 6 customers say differently.

    Apple, you are alienating your customersI’ve owned this ipad mini for all of 5 minutes and have come to the first Apple hurdle: No cable to connect it to my Apple desktop or Macbook. The cable they supply fits neither machine. Heck, it doesn’t fit my iPhone either!Which brings me to the gist of my review: I’ve been an Apple customer for probably close to 25 years but at the same time I purchased this ipad I also bought my first Android device (tablet) to begin the changeover. For the short term I’m a bit anchored to Apple through work (graphics) but find Apple products and policies so overbearing that I’m over the coolaid hype and have begun the switch back to Android.For example; this cable that isn’t supplied. Gotta buy more horribly overpriced/coolaid accompanying items.Seriously Apple?Or, wanting to play music in itunes that Apple – for whatever reason – feels like ghosting that day.Or the inability to remove U2 music from my itunes. For over a decade. FFS apple, if I delete them 100x, I don’t want them!Or, wanting to download my photos and store on my external HD, in .jpg format – and not some Apple invented proprietary format.Or, the never-ending parade of asking me for passwords. Accept it once, and that’s my password until I say it needs to be changed. Not you.Or, trying to charge/connect my device with a “non Apple authorized” cord. Sometimes it works, sometimes it works if I unlock my phone, and sometimes it won’t work at all. Just depends. Really Apple?Or, trying to get virtually ANY Garmin product to play nice with Apple:Ride a bike and use a Garmin product? Problem.Own a boat and use a Garmin product? Problem.Own a motorcycle and use GPX files to navigate offroad? Problem.The list goes on an on. Just one frustrating interface after another.The hours of frustration that Apple has forced me to endure in the last few years are what’s making me switch. This iPad will be phased out with the tablet over the coming year. My Macbook is a few years old and needs updating but won’t be updated with a Mac product, and neither will the Imac or my iPhone. I’m just so over the frustration.The good thing I guess is that I own a bunch of Apple stock. So all you 16-year old Coolaid drinkers will be helping me as I switch to Android.Goodbye Apple. It’s hasn’t been fun.

    Jelly ScrollingAgree with the other review regarding the display issue. It’s bad. Otherwise I would have given the device 5 stars. Instead, I returned it.

    The Mini 6 just feels like Apple cut corners but kept the premium price.Nice and fast, good battery life, good cameras.The jelly scrolling is a noticeable issue and it’s weird they oriented the screen in this direction. In general the screen is low quality enough that it was initially causing me eye pain and a headache but just took some getting used to as after ~10 days it’s not currently issue.Pressing too hard on the screen will cause some distortion on the lcd.Other then resolution, my old Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 (2014) had a vastly better screen, more vibrant, better colors, no jelly scrolling, doesn’t have the screen press issue.The Mini 6 just feels like Apple cut corners but kept the premium price.

    Perfect For TravelingThis iPad is amazing! The size is perfect for when I’m on the go or just chilling at home. I’m a motorcoach driver, so I need something to do when I’m away. About the jelly scroll issue, I can kind of see it, but it doesn’t bother me at all. I think people who are bothered by it have owned an iPad or tablet all their life and they’re not used to the left side slightly lagging. The last time I had an iPad was the 2nd generation one, and that one crapped out several years ago. So having a brand new iPad with updated software is just a blessing to me.

    Jelly scrollingApple says the “jelly scrolling” is normal for this product but give me a break. Once you see the jelly scroll you can’t unsee it. None of the other ipads have this problem.

  10. Amazon Customer

    Damaged device after opening the boxI give 2 star only because of the fast shipping. I know it’s not pricey, but please still handle the package with care. I was so excited to open the new iPad until I saw this was already damaged while it was shipping to me. No air bag or bubble wrap to protect the product in the box. It won’t take you more than five minutes to do that. This is just so heartbroken to see how your reckless packaging ruins this piece of art.
