iPad mini 4 or iPad mini 2?
I am in the market for an iPad mini for my (almost) 7 yr old daughter. She has been asking for an apple device for the past 2 years! Gotta love all the commercials on disney junior that say "get it in the apple app store today".
So, I was looking around for iPad minis and how much they cost. I figured 16gb isn't nearly enough, so I would go with at least 32gb, and I want the cellular connection as well. (We will be using this on vacations and whatnot, so I don't want to be always tied to wifi!)
I took a look at a local retailer, and they have an iPad mini 2, with Cellular connection (it says t-mobile...I thought they were really network agnostic...but it really doesn't matter, because I'd be using it on t-mo anyway), and 32GB for $299.
To the best of my understanding, the mini 3 is just the mini 2 with touchID...so i really don't need that.
The 64GB iPad mini 4 is running at $629
So, my question is, is the mini 4 REALLY worth the extra $330(+tax). What are the killer features that would make me want to spend more than 2x the amount? If you were buying it, which would you choose? Keeping in mind that this will be a 'family' device, but will mainly be used by a 7 year old to play (hopefully educational) games on!
Thanks for any input!
