    I know I can’t be the only one excited about the new iPad mini. I have a mini2 & will finally be upgrading. I didn’t see a need to upgrade when the 4 came out, but now my 2 is showing its age. The larger iPads are too big for me & the 4 was just too old.

    Will you all get a new Mini?
    I’ve always loved the mini size too. Lightweight, portable and easy to read books. ❤️

    Too small for me, use a kindle for books. Couldn't go below 11". Although if i could set one up in my car would be cheaper than a CarPlay unit, for my car anyway.

    You could probably do it. I know people used to use Google's Nexus 7 tablet as an entertainment unit like that.

    Agreed. I still find it interesting for that reason alone.

    got a gen 3 and a 5, the 3 still hangs in there despite the last” genius” I spoke to telling me it would die in a couple of months over a year ago, so I don’t need one.

    I use a kindle for books too, but my mini is for surfing the web, playing games, & watching things. Since I’m doing the trial for News+, it’s a great device to look at magazines on. Not too big, not too small.

    I just bought one despite owning a 9.7" one.

    I figure use the 9.7" one for Netflix, Amazon Prime, etc Use the Mini for everything else. I'm a colorist and a writer so it'll be nice.

    I got the gold 256 one coming today I’m excited l always loved the minis for there size and portability to just throw in the purse and go.

    I have the 10.5 pro in rose gold but for me l find its to big to carry anywhere plus my grand daughter usually is using that one when she comes to visit.
    Plus it’s a shiny new device coming lol

    Just got offered a 64gb by my Telco for $24 a month, works out $223 below retail here spread over 24mths. Only 2gb data but we share. Would be a good size between my XR and 11" pro.
    Think i would be mad not to take it??

    I’m using a gen 2 to write this. It is still going strong. I will probably pick up a new one when they start putting them on sale. Love the size of the mini. I use it for 90 percent of my web viewing.

    My gen3 does pretty well until I try to play games, then it makes me want to go buy the new one really bad!

    My kids have the gen 3 mini and while iOS 12 made them as usable as they’ve been in a long time it may not be long before we get the new ones. I love the size of the mini personally but I got the 10.5” pro last year and have no reason to get one for myself. I’m thinking I’ll get them the minis for Christmas.

    I love iPads. I now have a 512gb 13” 3rd gen pro, a 512gb 11” 3rd gen pro and a 256gb mini 5.

    I also have two 128gb mini 4s. The mini 5 is a huge and long overdue upgrade. Only downside is no camera upgrade. Still no flash.

    Ive currently got both the 256GB and the 64GB reserved for pickup and I’m going to get one of them today but I can’t decide which one. I’ve currently got the 128GB mini 4 and I have about 40GB free. However there is a lot of stuff stored on there that I don’t really need. I usually use it on my commute to work which is 2 hours each way. However in June I’m starting a new job which is only 25 minutes away so I’ll only be using it around the house.

    I already have a 256GB iPad Pro 10.5 and a 256GB iPhone XS Max.

    I just can’t decide which one to get.

    That’s exactly what I was thinking when I started this LOL! I love horror movies & probably end up watching Poltergeist at least once a month SMH.

    I bought one, I love it. Finally, an iPad mini that I can use my Apple Pencil with, and keep in my bag with my MBP.

    I’ve never used the Apple Pencil. In what manner do you use it? Are you an artist or do you use it for notes or something else?

    I use mine to take notes as well as edit notes sent to me. Really useful on the go.

    I mostly use it for notes or marking up notes, but I’ve also done a few sketches here and there.
