All the rumors have been put to rest today after Apple unveiled the iPad mini to the world. We have pretty much discussed every detail regarding the iPad Mini, but it seems we have forgotten one important thing, and that is unwanted touches on the display of the iPad mini.
iPad Mini Advanced Touch Screen
As you can imagine, iPad mini just being 7.9 inches and with a thin bezel on the sides would make room for unintentional touches. Well as you know with Apple, they have a solution to every problem. iPad mini has an advanced touch screen able to recognize unwanted touches on the display.
Apple has integrated an advanced touch screen on the iPad mini that intelligently detects whether you are intentionally touching the screen or simply resting your thumb on the touch screen of the iPad mini.
From Apple’s website:
For iPad mini, we reduced the width of the bezels on two sides of the display. So although the screen is smaller, it’s even more prominent. Rethinking the screen meant we also had to rethink the software behind it. iPad mini intelligently recognizes whether your thumb is simply resting on the display or whether you’re intentionally interacting with it. It’s the kind of detail you’ll notice — by not noticing it.
This would be a welcome news for all of you who were thinking to buy an iPad mini and were worried about unintentional touches that will distract you. This is certainly a very useful feature for the iPad mini especially while reading e-books.
Currently we are not sure whether how this works, Apple has not put an official word out yet on the workings of this tech, and neither are we sure this technology works or not. The only way to find out is once we get our hands on an iPad mini.
