The iPhone might have gotten bigger, but there's still a place in our hearts for small tablets, as evidenced by today's announcement of the iPad Mini 4.

But what makes this worth upgrading from the (now discontinued) iPad Mini 3? We've got the specs for both lined up right here so you can see if the Mini 4 is fresh enough for your dollars.
