I’m very conflicted about purchasing the iPad mini 4, any advice?
I’ve been super conflicted about purchasing a brand new mini 4 from the store because it hasn’t been updated and has 4 year old software. The price hasn’t come down either.
I don’t know much about Apple, or how their things work.
I have an IPhone 8 but that’s about it, so I’m not very knowledgeable.
I’ve heard rumors about the mini either being retired, or updated this year but with no real answers.
I love the mini size and I don’t want any other tablet or iPad size. I don’t mind having the mini 4, but I’m wondering if I’m getting ripped off by paying $400 for something that hasn’t been updated.
Is it wiser to go the pre-loved route? I’ve found a couple in the $180-$200 range.
I don’t mind getting something used, I’m just worried about possible issues with battery life with a tablet that’s been on the market for so long. There would be no way to tell if it was bought a year or few years ago and has 3 years of abuse on it.
