iPad Mini's A15 chip won't support fastest 5G

On Tuesday, Apple announced the redesigned iPad Mini — which supports 5G connectivity but does not support millimetre-wave — at its “California Streaming”.

Support for 5G was one of the stand-out features of Apple’s iPad Mini reveal; however, the device specs show that it only supports low- and mid-band 5G connectivity.

Fast 5G connections rely primarily on coverage, which is limited in South Africa but is expanding with MTN, Rain, and Vodacom rolling out their 5G networks in new cities.

Lol well yeah it's Apple. They need to squeeze as much profit out as humanly possible.

Cool a few years ago (2016) I was looking at tablets with my dad and played with a bunch of Android tablets (I think Samsung was big at the time), Windows ones, etc, but it always felt like the iPad was just much more optimised, so ended up buying an iPad.
