It's coming...I would like a bezel less iPad mini
Apple can't seem to get everything right... they had to "butcher" the cheaper ipads with the compatibility of the 1st generation pencil - why did they do that? Why not have compatibility for both pencils?hope for an iPad Pro. I would have bought one of this year's new iPad mini and 10.5-inch iPad Air but the compatibility with the old pencil only was a bit too limiting. Now I really hope to get an iPad with an A13X processor.
If 11” is only slightly too large, a mini would be much too small. In any case, I can’t imagine the market for an iPad mini Pro is large enough to make it feasible. The entire mini demand is already small enough that Apple only bothers to update it at 3+ year intervals. The verticals that use a lot of minis—doctors/nurses, point of sale, pilots, etc. don’t need a Pro device.
But to answer your question, you can make suggestions at:
I'm coming from a Mini Gen 1 (long retired). We do have an 11" iPad Pro - but I hardly use it, I just don't like the size.coming from the mini4 i got used to it after a couple weeks. If the mini5 is any indication...the next time its refreshed it may finally get the 11" features from today but 3 years from now lol
Precisely! And the developers are only required to update 1 device, iPhone or iPad. At lease that’s my understanding. If Apple is going to introduce varying aspect ratios, the developers should have to make it fit for them all.And that’s another point which shows the line is too fragmented. Developers don’t support all screen sizes.
Apple tries to satisfy the most customers possible while keeping the number of models to a (relatively) manageable number.I'm coming from a Mini Gen 1 (long retired). We do have an 11" iPad Pro - but I hardly use it, I just don't like the size.
It's the same with the iPhones. Apple tailors the smaller devices as entry-level devices, hence cheaper. They fail to realize that there is a demographic who wants the same features, just in a smaller form factor. Ever thought of why there might not be so much demand for the mini as it is? Because people who want certain features have no choice than to upgrade to the larger models....similar reasons why the iPhone C wasn't as big of a hit. If there wasn't demand for a Mini, they wouldn't have introduced it way back to begin with. Because the initial reasoning too was "You need a certain size to enjoy the iPad".
At Apple, Bigger is always better....
So. I may not need the Pro Power, but that's the reason I have to forgo FaceID and ApplePencil2?
