    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?

    At this point in my life, the iPad in any iteration is not on my list of items to have. Granted, I have to use an iPad at work for testing and demo purposes, but for personal use, I’ll stick with my iPhone and MacBook Pro.

    I use it a lot when I’m in my room & not reading. I don’t have a TV in the bedroom, so it comes in handy. I also love the size. This is only my 3rd iPad & I’m pretty sure it’ll be another 5+ years before I even consider upgrading again.

    No iPad Mini for me since we have 3 iPads in our household plus I have a MacBook Pro so not enough use cases for us to justify one. There's definitely a love and niche for the mini. Enjoy your upgraded iPad Mini!!

    @nikkisharif I'm excited for you! It does sound perfect for you, and I'm glad that Apple has produced a new iPad mini! I can't wait to hear how you like it.

    My teen son has my old iPad Pro (original 9.7” cellular model) and uses it on occasion to surf the web and watch movies, but still, the bulk of his movie watching is on his iPhone.

    Whenever he tells me he’s watching a movie, it’s on his iPhone, even though there’s a working 32” flat screen TV in his room...smh

    I'll pass. The mini has never interested me. Though I may see if my wife has interest in it.

    The mini is definitely a niche product, but I’m glad Apple decided to upgrade it for those of us that are rocking really old minis. I can’t wait until it’s in my hands LOL

    Not for me. I’m getting an iPad Pro 12.9”

    I am past home buttons and bezels in my life. Feels very archaic.

    Had they shrunk the bezel, it would be a no brainer, BUT for now I will stick to my 10.5 inch.

    How about th eportability aspect? Or is the 11" model small enough to make portability not an important consideration?

    It's cool that they brought the form factor back. It's a great portability size. I don't usually take my iPad anywhere though and I like the larger screen size of the bigger ones. I actually just sort of got an upgrade. We're sending my 5th gen iPad (2017 model?) to my in-laws in Ireland, I got my wife's 10.5 Pro which is a massive processing upgrade for me, and she went with the 2018 iPad. She wasn't using the Pro features etc. and wanted to just do the 2018 model over 2019 Air to save a few $$$.

    I absolutely love the look of the Pro but I’m not carrying that huge thing around with me LOL. It’s bigger than my MacBook Air & I absolutely loathe carrying that when I have to

    I loved my iPad Mini 1st gen when it came out. Ended up switching to the iPad Air at the time. Ive always loved the form factor of the iPad mini. Im glad they updated it. I want to get one to pair up with my iPhone X. Also happy about the darker space gray.
