With the big day fast approaching, Apple has posted a new Christmas-themed TV advert for the iPad mini on its YouTube channel. The 30-second spot, which is titled “I’ll Be Home”, features a young girl performing Bing Crosby’s “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” for her grandfather via FaceTime, and ends with snowflakes falling in front of the Apple logo.

“I’ll be home for Christmas. You can count on me. I’ll be home for Christmas, if only in my dreams.”

Since its unveiling back in October, Apple has now released four TV ads for the iPad mini. In each one the device is shown alongside a regular sized iPad – making the point, that despite its smaller size, the mini is just as capable as the 9.7-inch iPad.

Last year, Apple’s Christmas TV advert featured Santa using Siri on the iPhone 4S.
