What do you think we can expect from the Mini 2 besides retina?

I'm thinking of buying an iPad mini, and I really have no qualms about it. i was just wondering what features everyone thinks the mini 2 could have.

u guys being mean to newbie here!

To answer such repetitive question, i would say not a feature i request but a 12W adaptor out of da box would be nice.

Im anticipating that Ipad 5 might come with 5W Iphone adaptor and take 10 hrs to charge which apple will suggest on their website for all of us to buy an extra 12W for USD 19.

Faster processor and more RAM in addition to the retina screen.

If that.

Some rumors say no retina screen on the mini 2. I sincerely hope not. I would probably sell my iPad 4 and get a nice 32GB mini if it has retina. If not, Iíll just wait.

I don't think it's even remotely likely but I would like to see a SD card slot on all versions of the iPad. One can dream...

Just straighten out the hooked part of a coat hanger and stick it in the earphone jack. Should work fine.

You have to stick it in really, really deep though in order to get a good signal. Especially if you want to watch HD movies.

Agreed with you, what is so difficult to get the slot into the ipad for apple ?
Maybe they want to keep the suppliers making camera connection kit to be happy.

If people could use SD cards with their iPods, iPhones and iPads then the case for paying for more internal memory diminishes. I can't be sure but I bet Apple makes a lot of "extra" profit on it's higher memory models.

Just a micro sd card slot should do, no wonder other tablets manufactures are eating their market. As simple as that.

I think it wont be retina. Simply because they are probably not going to sacrifice the battery and weight.

I disagree. Apple managed to go Retina with the iPad by adding a few mm to thickness and a few grams to weight. No one hated the new 22 ounce iPad over the 20-21 because Retina is a huge plus. And with Apple requiring all apps to be retina soon, a not retina Mini would not make sense.

They will have to go to a full HD screen sooner rather than later. Given the fact that the Kindle Fire HD and Nexus 7 have better screens, they'll have to upgrade soon.

Yes, I know that those other tablets don't have the giant App Store at their disposal, and that's a valid point, but sooner or later Apple is going to have to keep up with the technology being offered elsewhere.

They said the same about the iPad. "Retina iPad" was nearly a contradiction in itself, even here on MR.

I won't mind 10 % extra weight and thickness, which was the case for iPad 3.

Don't have a clue. Call Apple, and maybe they will tell you. Maybe not

OP, I have learned that such questions can never be answered by anyone on a forum, but Apple, and they are not talking. So its just guess work, and a waste of time trying to get into the head of Apple. These question will never cease

Ok, but are you sure you would notice it if the iPad mini increased just 10 percent in weight? It's just extra ounce (from 11 to 12 oz.). In comparison, the iPad 4 weighs 23.5 oz and the iPad 2 weighs 21.5.

Other than that, I agree with you about the normal retina iPad being a bit too heavy. Especially if you're going to hold it with one hand and write with the other, or hold it in an upright position with your hands. Static strain on the muscles can be harmful over time (like the "mouse arm").
