Just like my iPhone 4S, I also updated my iPad mini to iOS 6.1. It also has the same set of updates just like on other iOS devices. Here are some snapshots I've taken on my iPad mini while updating to iOS 6.1. You can also check out my post on updating my iPhone 4S to iOS 6.1 here. Again, I find the update very decent and I do not see any problem so far on my iPad mini. If you've been reserving since iOS 5.0, now's the nice time to upgrade your device to iOS 6.1.
