iPad mini
Apple never mentioned the iPad mini, but it's still there. With an 8.3-inch display, the device is larger than a smartphone but smaller than what is commonly referred to as an iPad.

It would have been nice to update the chip on Tuesday, but at least the iPad mini is still within the range of the update.

Pen and Keyboard
Here things get a little complicated. Some accessories work with some iPad models but not others.

Let's start with the pen. All iPads now support pens. Apple sells a basic USB-C Apple Pencil that works with all models for $79, making it the cheapest option. It attaches magnetically to your tablet, but you may need to use a USB-C cable to charge it.
