I expect we will hear more solid rumors early next year on how big it will be.

Should the iPhone 6 get a 4.8 or 5 inch screen, I would lean towards the iPad 5. But if the iPhone 6 gets a minimal increase to 4.3 inches, I would get the mini.
Just saying but you won't know that by early next year most likely.

Ok- so supposing the new mini has retina display and everything I want,

how will the display work? Assuming its the same resolution as the 5, just on a smaller screen, in certain apps where currently maybe the 5 gets 3 columns and the mini gets two, would the mini get three now?

I'm not sure if that's good or not if I understand correctly.

By the 5, you mean a full-size iPad, right?

And I don't know if there are any apps that behave the way you are saying. I thought the non retina mini displayed the exact same thing as a full-sized iPad, only smaller, and grainier than the retina models. Am I wrong? Do you actually have an app that does what you are saying?

By five I meant full sized iPad yeah. And this is what I was referring to:

Hmmm, I guess text based apps, which Feedly is, could show more content per page on the bigger iPad if they used the same text size on both. But I'd say apps like that are the exception rather than the rule. And the mini going retina shouldn't change how such apps behave.

Ok great.

If the mini has touch ID and retina I will definitely be getting it.

If the 5 has touch ID and the mini has retina but no touch id, I'll have to think about that.

And if the mini doesn't get retina, then I'll get a 5.
