Will Apple ever update the iPad Mini line?
I have the iPad Mini 2. It is the most perfect device ever! Thin, lightweight, high pixel density…I enjoy reading on it, especially on bed before sleeping. Works amazing if it is a book, pdf, or just casual online browsing. Great for watching videos as well.
Now I’ve had the Mini 2 for some 4 years now. It can get incredibly laggy. And the battery dies real quick. But when I look at the upgrade option…there’s only the Mini 4 launched way back in 2015 with a fairly dated SoC. Make no mistake, I think the Mini 2 is the best ever tech purchase I’ve made. It’s incredibly functional for a four year old device that’s seen some knocks and is heavily used on a daily basis!
I’d have gotten a 9.7-inch iPad by now…but correct me if I am wrong the current iPad is a fair bit thicker and heavier than the iPad Air models. To me size and weight is all that matters.
I want a simple, basic, no frills tablet experience. That’s why I want an iPad even though I have an Android phone and know Android is a more functional OS. I had two Android tablets before my iPad and I’ll never go back.
Would appreciate your thoughts on this. I can wait a few more months if a Mini 5 is imminent, else I need to check on my options.
