    I know that Apple doesn't always give RAM specs at announcement, but yet if it was an increase, might they not have mentioned it?

    If you get the 4, at least check in with me about your 2!
    I've got a 3 I'm selling! LOL

    I think last year's iPad Air 2 was well ahead of its time, so updating the mini with its specs is not a case of throwing in old stuff to a new piece of hardware, but throwing in "relevant" stuff to what it needs to do now.

    I don't think its necessarily failing, people just don't upgrade iPads often. The mini 4 is mostly caught up to the Air 2 now aside from it having an A8 and not A8X, and the Air didn't even get updated this year and likely won't until sometime next year. I just ordered a mini 4 myself as I much prefer the smaller size, even though I'm also getting a 6S Plus.

    I really more love for the mini - it is so versatile and useful. The only iPad I can take absolutely everywhere and even without a bag. Pencil support would be amazing!

    I have a mini 3. Love it. Perfect for work use as well as personal. A full size iPad would just be too big for my needs

    My toddler is spoiled. He loves his iPad learning games and we signed him up for ABC Mouse, so I got him an iPad mini 2 for Christmas. I'm that parent haha

    Yes I find the mini is great for kids. I sometimes take it with us when we are getting their haircut as it is quite dull sitting around and waiting

    I've actually just returned to the iOS from a long stretch in the Android world. My phone is still an Honor 8 but I just picked up an iPad Mini 4 and I really like it. Paired with a Belkin keyboard case and using the VM ware app, I can remote in to my desktop at work from pretty much anywhere. Its pretty cool to see Windows running on an iPad but it works really well. The bottom line, for me at least, is that this is powerful little computer that still has a lot of potential going for it.

    To answer the OP, my suspicion is there will not be an iPad Mini 5 -- though that is my guess and I'd love to be wrong. I think the issue is that with a 5.5" iPhone, and the new iPhone 8 rumored to have a 5.8" screen, my impression is that Apple feels that there isn't enough size difference. I think this is made worse with the decline in tablet sales.

    Of course, what actually ends up happening likely depends on how well the various tablets sale; and the Mini is somewhat hurt with the iPad (2017) having a lower starting price (though only 32GB Storage).
