Since there’s a chance of a new iPad Mini coming out with possibly Apple Pencil 2 compatibility, would you buy one?
I’m an iPad Mini 4 user, and I greatly love the size. It’s been the reason I haven’t jumped to getting the iPad 2018 for the Apple pencil support the past month or so once I discovered it’s great for note taking.
My use case is I always bring it along with my Macbook Pro 13″ 2015 (I code), hence you know… Weight matters. Am a grad student and avid reader. I also frequently read on public transpo during the daily commute. Am now using my iPad for taking notes too with a mesh tipped stylus.
I’m thinking of deciding on which iPad to get this coming March. And was wondering if there are others like me with similar thoughts on waiting for the chance of such a product being released. Or if there are those with similar thoughts, and have compared the pros and cons with the iPad 9.7 2018 one.
My two cons with the iPad Mini with Apple Pencil support for one is again, also the size. I’m not sure really sure how it’ll be for opening a book and a notes app side by side, no space really. Not sure if it’s better with the 9.7. And two, is just how much this would actually be once released, given the current price of the Mini 4.
A third possible con actually is the issues I’ve been hearing about the Apple Pencil 2 and battery drain? Not sure really.
