I'll have to see what features the new mini will have. My rMini definitely serves its purpose & it's a great device. I also don't upgrade my iPads every year, so the 3 will have to be extraordinary.
I had the original Mini. So when I traded in devices for credit at the Apple store recently, they only had higher GB models in the Mini 3. So I've got a Mini 3. I do like it a lot actually. Touch ID can be really useful I think.
Does any apple store offer credit or was it just that one store you went to, or was it a promotion offer?
I'm pretty sure they all offer it most likely. For me, I have to say that I could of got more for my devices than the Apple store gave me. They don't offer the most for your devices. It was the fact that I was returning my 6 and had started having trouble with my Mini. Plus my other 5c that was just collecting dust. So it was convenient to just bring all those devices in. I'd originally intended to trade them and get a 5s, then just put the rest in my savings. However, I started playing with a Mini 3 on display. Sure enough I really wanted it so I walked out with that instead. Still had a little cash after returning the 6. Got a 5s a few days later!
