This is weird.
Is it because my iPad Mini 4 has a case and the iPad Air doesn't ?
Most likely it is because of the case.
Yeah but a case doesn't weight that much does it ?
Of course a case is going to add weight. It also could be the more compact form so the weight is not as spread out.
Easy solution ... take it out of the case and check.
Yup a case will make it feel heavier.
It's not just a matter of pure weight, but leverage as well. The iPad mini has a shorter leverage distance from where you hold it (center of mass), but if that mass increases, so will the leverage. Also if you hold the iPad Air with 2 hands, then it's the perpendicular distance to the center of mass rather than the diagonal that forms the leverage, which will make it feel lighter.
