In an attempt to meet the demands of different customers, Apple surprisingly present the world both iPad mini and iPad 4 in October. iPad mini is designed as a small-size tablet with lower price while iPad 4 is a high-end tablet with Retina Display. With easy-to-carry design and powerful functions, both tablets can be used as walking cinema. Therefore, users will need a method to transfer movies from iPad mini to iPad 4 at times.
