Aside from the beau­ti­fully gar­gan­tuan 12.9-inch iPad Pro (see right), there was a small but very wel­come change to Ap­ple’s tablet line-up last Septem­ber with the ad­di­tion of the iPad mini 4, which is es­sen­tially an iPad Air 2 in a smaller chas­sis. The Air 2 hasn’t changed since late 2014, though.

On the soft­ware side, iOS 9 has brought mul­ti­task­ing fea­tures, which are a boon for pro­duc­tiv­ity. You can slide a sec­ond app over the right side of the one you’re work­ing in (great for quickly check­ing email), then dis­miss it to get back to work. Pic­ture in Pic­ture en­ables you to watch video in a cor­ner of the screen – but it may be a bit too small on the mini. Those two fea­tures work on the Air 2, mini 2 and Pro and newer mod­els. There’s also Split View, on the Air 2, mini 4 and Pro, which lets you work on two apps side by side.
