Does not work on iPad Mini 4 as advertised in App Store

Recommended Posts

Does not work on iPad Mini 4 as advertised in App Store! Is this by design, was I lured in by a typo, or will this problem be resolved with an update?

Hey TalmonJr,

 

Unfortunately you will have to request a refund from Apple as we do not support any of the iPad Mini devices as mentioned in the link Alfred provided. We are working on changing this as Matt has said here. I'm so sorry for the trouble this has caused you  :(

It will never run on a Mini iPad?

What is the limiting factor? GPU?

No, it's not the GPU. It's the fact that the screen on an iPad Mini is too small for the controls to be usable.

Depends which Mini you mean: the Mini 1 & 2 are 32-bit; the Mini 3 is 64-bit but has too little RAM, no Metal, and low res screen and physically small screen, The Mini 4 is 64-bit, Metal support, 2 GB Ram and a high res screen but has a physically small screen making it hard to use, however it is a great iPad otherwise. Technically it could be made to run on a mini 4 but practically it may be very difficult to control on the smaller screen.

The iPad Mini 2, 3, and 4 will all be supported in iOS 11so by definition they are 64-bit devices:

The Mini 2-4 processor is 64-bit.
