    Got a cellular iPad Mini 4 as my first tablet and I really love it. I watch videos, read articles, and some casual gaming on my Mini which is great. Those tasks are not that demanding so I assume that the Mini 4 will probably last for several more years for me even if it no longer receives the latest OS update. However, it is unfortunate that Apple is no longer making new Minis. I wish they would release a new one every two years because I'm sure there are a lot of users who prefer the Mini. The Mini doesn't have to have the newest and latest tech so I hope the iPad Mini isn't completely dead.

    I got fed up of waiting for Apple to update the mini and I’ve just ordered the mini 4. I desperately need something smaller than my 10.5 inch iPad Pro for 2 hour each way commute each day. I’ve also downsized my 7 plus to the iPhone X so the mini will be more appropriate now. The mini 4 might be the last mini as Apple don’t seem that keen to update it.

    I’ve had all 3 generations of the iPad mini before the 4 and I really enjoy the form factor.

    If they don’t update the Mini during the rumored 2018 iPad refresh I doubt it’s ever going to happen. With iOS 11 Apple has clearly shifted focus to larger display iPads. I just don’t see the Mini as something that follows Apple’s game plan going forward.

    I doubt there will be anymore new mini so will just be sticking to my mini 4. Had it since it was first launched and still going strong, though with some minor lag with current iOS 11.2.2.

    There’s still a possibility. Although it does seem like Apple is focusing on their iPad Pro lineup.

    Previously there were rumors that Apple's discontinuing the iPad mini line and it's not been updated for some time.

    If there's a mini pro I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

    But Apple's thinking ain't that way as it seems they're now concentrating on their 10.5" and 12.9" Pros. Imagine all the features of the Pro in a mini, it'll be so cool!

    I suspect the mini is dead. Because I believe it will be, I bought my son a 128GB mini 4 at Best Buy for $275 recently. He had a 1st gen mini and it was almost non usable. So we upgraded him while we could.
