Collection Specifics

My specific iPad Mini 4 is the gold-colored one with the maximum 128 GB of storage. I received it as a birthday gift on December 6, 2017. This is the first iPad I've ever had and it lasted a good 5 years before I upgraded to a 5th generation iPad Air in January 2023.

Operating System

This iPad originally shipped with iOS 9 and it was the first device to do so. Since I got mine in December 2017, it had iOS 11 on it at the time. Since then, it's been upgraded to iPadOS 15.7.2, which is the latest version of iPadOS 15 as of January 12, 2023. iPadOS 15 is the last version of iPadOS to support the iPad Mini 4.
