    I like a larger screen. So I would not choose a mini.

    I love my RMini and can't think of a good enough reason to update this cycle since I don't see the value in having Touch ID on an iPad. I have it on the 5s and love it because I take it out and use it several more times a day. The gets used for longer stretches so less important to have Touch ID in my opinion. With that said I am really interested to see what the next generation brings.

    I'll have to see what features the new mini will have. My rMini definitely serves its purpose & it's a great device. I also don't upgrade my iPads every year, so the 3 will have to be extraordinary.

    I'm just gonna stay with my Mini 2. No compelling reason for me to get another. Especially because my current one is jailbroken on iOS 7.1.2 with XBMC.

    I took advantage of the price drop and got myself a Retina Mini '2'. The 100 bucks extra for the 3 didn't seem worth it to me. That said, I had an iPad 3rd gen years ago, didn't like it, went to a Nexus 7, didn't like that either. I think I have found my tablet. Wonderful little device. I decided to keep my iPhone 5 due to its size and my lifestyle, and the iPad mini for when I am home relaxing.

    Sticking with my Retina iPad mini I got for christmas last year. Not enough new features to warrant a new iPad mini.

    When the sales are off the so called experts will just blame the 6 plus or that the mini form factor isn't appealing anymore. Never mind it was a poor update.

    it doesnt make sense to upgrade from the 2 to 3...read a great article on why the 2 is currently the better buy...the only upgrade possible worthy of a change is to the air 2...if you dont mind going a little bigger

    It didn't turn out to be extraordinary nor did it even have me thinking about it. Touch ID is not enough to get me to upgrade. Just like the 4 didn't get me to upgrade from my 3 just for the lightening port. I'm definitely passing on this one.

    No. The mini 3 isn't worth it imo. The only difference is touch ID and Apple pay isn't even supported in my country now. I had the original mini and went to the iPad Air and have now just gone to the mini 2.

    I only purchased the iPad 2 Mini with Retina display 2 weeks ago. Grabbed it quick before the 2 ran out of stock and the 3 took over. I had no interest in paying extra for the touch/fingerprint sensor. Two weeks in I know I made the right choice and I am well happy with my purchase.

    I just purchased the mini 2, I might pass on the mini 3; touch ID is not really worth the extra money for the small cosmetic changes. This is my upgrade from an iPad 3. Had a original iPad mini before the iPad 3, it was just the right size.

    I had the original Mini. So when I traded in devices for credit at the Apple store recently, they only had higher GB models in the Mini 3. So I've got a Mini 3. I do like it a lot actually. Touch ID can be really useful I think.

    Does any apple store offer credit or was it just that one store you went to, or was it a promotion offer?

    I'm pretty sure they all offer it most likely. For me, I have to say that I could of got more for my devices than the Apple store gave me. They don't offer the most for your devices. It was the fact that I was returning my 6 and had started having trouble with my Mini. Plus my other 5c that was just collecting dust. So it was convenient to just bring all those devices in. I'd originally intended to trade them and get a 5s, then just put the rest in my savings. However, I started playing with a Mini 3 on display. Sure enough I really wanted it so I walked out with that instead. Still had a little cash after returning the 6. Got a 5s a few days later!

    I didn't use my original Mini that much either. I think until I got all this free data from T-Mobile on the cellular Mini 3, I didn't realize what I was missing. Haha.

    Didn't upgrade to the Mini 3 from a Mini 2, but I did upgrade to an Air 2. Needed more than 16 GB, and I wanted a bigger screen. Throwing in 2 GB of RAM made this a no brainer for me

    What is your purpose of replying to this thread, then?

    I can't justify the purchase over the mini 2. Touch ID isn't worth the price when the mini 2 is still working so well.
