Comparing Colors Between the iPad Air and iPad Mini

Earlier today, I posted my first impressions of the iPad Air. I like it a lot. But I noticed something: in comparison with my iPad mini, the colors are different. The blues are much bluer, and the reds seem a bit more muted. It’s hard to see it in a photo, but here’s one I shot of the two next to each other:

To my eye – both when I look at the iPad Air, and when I look at the above photo – the different in the blue is obvious, but the red less so. I don’t have any other iPads to test, but I did publish a post last year, comparing the iPad 3 to the iPad mini. Have a look at those photos, which looked more at the difference in whites than other colors.
