OK Apple, my wife's iPad Min 4 is having some battery issues, so I'm looking to upgrade to the iPad Min 5, but rumors are floating all over the place to include it might be discontinued? I can to an extent understand Apple's silence when it comes to new and updates to their product line; but what I can't understand is why "IF" the rumor mill is true, and they do in fact plan on discontinuing a product, why not just let us know? It's the perfect size for her to use as a reader, and surf, email, etc. the larger iPads are just too uncomfortable as a reader. I'm going to wait until the next iPad release, and if there's no update to the mini, I'll have to shop around for another hand held size device.
