    I don't think the 6 plus will kill any iPad. At the most at least in my usage case, it might cut into usage. But I'm someone who prefers the full sized iPad over the mini. Someone who prefers the mini might feel that it will.

    I don't think the 6 plus will kill the next gen iPad. I think 6 plus users that have a iPad Air may be less likely to upgrade their iPad but with Touch ID coming to iPad these users may feel they want that feature.

    I don't think so but that said, I am using my iPad air a lot less now that I have my 6 (I don't even have a 6 plus) while I'm at home. Still use the air at work tons though.

    To me these two devices are two different things. The iPhone 6 Plus is more of a phone to me while the iPad can't ever make a phone call...

    The P may cut into mini sales.... I don't think it will for the full size iPad.

    The question is more: "Will the iPhone 6+ kill the iPad MIni?".

    I think it might kill the mini but I still reach for my iPad 3 when searching for something.

    Since I got my 6+ last week, I have found myself not using my iPad 4 as much as I used to be. As a matter of fact, I only use my iPad 4 for movie viewing only for the last week (when it comes to movie viewing, size does matter). So I believe the 6+ will diminish the use of full size iPad, and it will kill off the iPad Mini.

    The full size iPad will not suffer - its big enough to really be in a different class. However, I can see the plus cutting into mini sales, more so for those who might now be hauling around the iphone and mini regularly. For many, there is still a big enough size difference for reading full pages of text - books, magazines, web pages, etc that makes the mini a more compelling device - but those not comfortable hauling around a mini, may opt to compromise and opt for the 6 plus. I see full size tablet sales as perfectly safe.

    I bought the 6 plus and got rid of my iPad Mini. But I think overall it won't kill the iPad. There will be a few like me but not enough to matter for Apple.

    Your using phone more now cause it's new. Once the newness wears off you will go back to using it for separate things.

    Probably, but my iPad is pretty new too. I sold my iPad 3 and traded an old Macbook for an iPad 3 a few weeks ago. It's almost as "new" as my 6.

    Yes. Dead. In fact I will bet my paycheck that Apple will discontinue the iPad in the new few days. It will be breaking news.

    Overall I don't think so. It will kill it to the folks who just want a device to get everything done with - for example, those of us who want one device to do everything.

    For the power users, and/or folks who want a separate device experience, the iPad will continue to sell. I for one still want an iPad with the Plus, though I do realize that now I can do some things on the Plus that I previously would only want to do on the iPad. To me they work better together, not replacing each other.

    I don't think so. I have a 6+ & I still use my rMini everyday. The size of my phone hasn't had much impact on my iPad usage.

    I use my iPhone 6 more than my iPad however I agree with those above, I think that once the newness wears off I think I may fall back into giving my iPad some more usage.

    I'm sure it will depend on people's needs, but I was thinking of getting an iPad mini until I took a look at the Plus. Now I see no reason to get one.

    Have the iPad and the iPhone 6 and use them both, don't see it havering much of an impact. And not all iPad user have iPhones.

    Unlikely. While 6 plus owners are likely not get the mini and opt for the air it hardly means it will kill it. Alot of users are going to get the normal Iphone 6 because they think the 6 Plus is too big for a phone. Likely they'll think the Air is too big for a tablet too. So they would go for the mini.
