Some of you have got to see this coming... the next update should be forced into higher flash storage. The Retina Display has hurt utility of the iPad because of the larger file size needed now for apps, photos, vids, etc because of the high res. So, will Apple upgrade... or do they think iCloud justifies them lowballing us on flash storage??? Remind all of you, flash storage gets relatively cheaper as time goes on... and they still use the same flash cards(only 8, 16 & 32GB flash cards), they used for the past 36 months. In my opinion, this iPad mini was spec'd out a long long time ago... none of the hardware they use is anything new or relatively new for that matter. If you totally disagree, please mention what you think the next biggest update is for the iPad or iPad mini... could it be NFC & bio-metric scanning?
